Free Association: Forget their previous moments of emotional thoughtfulness, and DANCE.

For Fans Of: The Rapture/Out Hud x LCD Soundsystem + Brian Eno, sweaty ecstasy.


The Mynabirds


(Saddle Creek)

Sounds Like: Laura Burhenn’s got a seriously powerful voice, and with her backing band, her second effort is a well-produced, heady mix of retro soul and Americana.

Free Association: This one’s heavier and louder than her debut, and it sounds great.

For Fans Of: Orenda Fink x Neil Young, Phantogram + Neko Case, powerful women.





Sounds Like: A surprising sixth LP from the L.A.-conceived noise rockers is heavily dipped in electronics and glitchy synthetic sounds; much lighter on the chaos and grit.

Free Association: It’s true, it’s a bit of an In Rainbows sound for them, and therefore awesome.

For Fans Of: Battles + the Fall, Gang of Four x hetero Depeche Mode, evolution.
