Gang of Four


(Yep Roc)

Sounds Like: Leeds, England-born and N.Y.-informed post-punks are making music again, and totally true-to-form. This is feedback, pounding drums and snarly lyricism.

Free Association: Have a taste of your own medicine— “You sound like the Rapture!”

For Fans Of: Bloc Party fronted by Jonathan Richman, the Fall.

David Guetta

One More Love

(Astralwerks/Gum Prod)

Sounds Like: Teen night and gay club anthems from the French DJ, here his collaborations with Rihanna, Kelly Rowland, Kid Cudi and the B.E.P.s make the cut.

Free Association: The man’s got a formula: Techno + House + Pop Star = Solid Gold.

For Fans Of: Carl Cox, strobe lights, sparkly spandex, drinks in the club.

say hi

um, uh oh


Sounds Like: The one-man force that is Seattle’s Eric Elbogen has proven powerful again on his seventh LP of emotive, textured and thoughtful indie rock.

Free Association: Formerly Say Hi To Your Mom, both are band-naming victories.

For Fans Of: Death Cab, Notwist, sad, dark flannels.
