Live at Stubb’s Vol. II

(Red General Catalog)

Sounds Like: There’s really only one Hasidic reggae superstar, so he’s on the top of his game there, and here’s ANOTHER live record of his kick-ass concert energy.

Free Association: Say what you want, but this Jew’s got legit flow and strong pipes.

For Fans Of: Bob Marley x Phish, Buju Banton x Judah, curly sideburns.

Cage the Elephant

Thank You, Happy Birthday

(Jive/R.E.D.)

Sounds Like: Bowling Green, Ky., dudes who made it big in England with “Ain’t No Rest for the Wicked,” their second is less Nashville and more NorCal sun punk.

Free Association: Lead singer’s got a voice, but boy is it annoying to watch him sing.

For Fans Of: Shins x Ramones, Dr. Dog x MGMT, mediocre garage rock.

Tahiti 80

The Past, The Present & The Possible

(Human Sounds)

Sounds Like: French pop masters unveil their sixth full length and it’s a dreamy, synthed-up Parisian paradise for the drug-taker needing a sexy groove to seduce.

Free Association: Something’s in that European water; must be wine and Phoenix.

For Fans Of: Air x the Gainsbourgs, Daft Punk, Darkel, cheese, berets.

Jessica Lea Mayfield

Tell Me

(Polymer Sounds/Nonesuch)
