Sounds Like: The Denver Gypsy rockers’ first LP in three years is as vibrantly international and powerful as ever, full of chaotic strings, horns and heartfelt yelps.

Free Association: Remember how everyone once loved Beirut? They should be pumped.

For Fans Of: Andrew Bird x Gogol Bordello, Calexico, accordions, stinky pits.

The Rural Alberta Advantage

Departing

(Saddle Creek)

Sounds Like: The second from the Toronto trio who nail the indie folk moment with a strong batch of smartly written, well-crafted and kickin’ countrified rock tunes.

Free Association: Rejoice! A Saddle Creek LP that doesn’t sound like Conor Oberst!

For Fans Of: Grizzly Bear x Arcade Fire, Black Mountain, quiet indie gems.
