Runner Runner

(Capitol)

Sounds Like: David Letterman is behind the division of Capitol these monsters have been cultivated in (what the?). Cali pop-punk tools go MORE pop and electro.

Free Association: Guys, wouldn’t it be cool if we were, ya know, like more dancy?

For Fans Of: Over it, Metro Station, All Time Low, straight-ironed bangs.

Hey Rosetta!

Seeds

(Sonic)

Sounds Like: Newfoundland sensitive rockers’ second LP is quiet, thoughtful and subdued; then ecstatic indie rock with layers of instruments, voices, and feelings.

Free Association: Probably a band that’d sell you on their live act, but this ain’t doin’ it.

For Fans Of: The Pogues x Broken Social Scene, sad bastard chamber rock.

The Dirtbombs

Party Store

(In The Red)

Sounds Like: Detroit garage punks turn in another round of covers (10 years ago they did some funk/soul covers), this time it’s classic techno gems done with guitars.

Free Association: A 21-minute take on “Bug in the Bassbin”—genius meets bonkers.

For Fans Of: The Gories, the Sonics, T. Rex, Motor City.

Drive-By Truckers

Go-Go Boots

(ATO)
