Cloud Nothings

(Carpark)

Sounds Like: The official debut of young Clevelander Dylan Baldi is a loud and constant onslaught of high-energy, lo-fi punk that doesn’t let up.

Free Association: He won’t be this full of piss and vinegar forever; get it while it’s hot!

For Fans Of: Male Bonding, Japandroids x Wavves, cloaked vitriol.

Revolver

Parallel Lives EP

(EMI/Astralwerks)

Sounds Like: A pretty little EP of acoustic stuff (just two new originals) after their full-length debut last year is more evidence they can harmonize like the dickens.

Free Association: Clasically trained and you can hear it in every damn note.

For Fans Of: Beach Boys and Beatles, Fleet Foxes, old-school harmonizing.

Starfucker

Reptilians

(Polyvinyl)

Sounds Like: The Portland, Ore., quartet makes dreamy, super-hip and current fast-paced electronic dance music which is also quite pop. They’ll be rich in no time!

Free Association: A band name that can be shortened (STRFKR), too? Success is imminent.

For Fans Of: Hot Chip, Pinback x ELO, hair whipped back n’ forth at the Barbary.

Devotchka

100 Lovers

(Anti-)
