For Fans Of: Tool + Mastodon, Dillinger Escape Plan x sedate Deftones, art metal.

 

Passion Pit

Gossamer

(Columbia)

Sounds Like: Their much-anticipated second album is as joyous as their debut, full of slick production, electrofunk and high-pitched ecstasy, masking all hints of Christianity.

Free Association: There might not be a “Sleepyhead” track, but it should do the trick.

For Fans Of: Caribou x Four Tet, Death Cab + Sam Sparro, Berklee College bands.

 

Laetitia Sadier

Silencio

(Drag City)

Sounds Like: The Stereolab chanteuse delivers on a wispy, romantic set, and yet under it all, it’s a political protest record shrouded in beautiful ethereal instrumentation.

Free Association: French cooing could be pure rage and hate, and it’d still be pretty.

For Fans Of: Charlotte Gainsbourg x Carla Bruni, Beth Orton broadcasts, socialism.

 

Fang Island

Major

(Sargent House)

Sounds Like: A slightly bizarre but not unpleasant mix of tinny, shiny metal guitars and happy, harmonious pop vocals with strong production and summer appeal.
