Sounds Like: Dreamy, rich and full throwback rock from Dan Bejar, his ninth, where he plays a ton of instruments and builds soundscapes with his sexy, sensual cooing.

Free Association: A comforting voice that sounds familiar, but like no one else.

For Fans Of: Serge Gainsbourg, Steely Dan x Bowie, cheesy, sexy times.

The Decemberists

The King Is Dead

(Capitol)

Sounds Like: The Oregonians left Kill Rock Stars years ago, have been producing “indie” sellers that are polished and complex, but more soulless with each disc.

Free Association: A weird mix of honky tonk, hipster folk and whiney emo—gross.

For Fans Of: Neutral Milk Hotel, Belle & Sebastian x the Pogues, plastic glasses.
