S/T II: The Cosmic Birth And Journey of Shinju TNT

(Dead Oceans)

Sounds Like: The fifth from the Portland/New York experimental folk collective is a complex and diverse, teetering between screaming chaos and delicate harmonies.

Free Association: No idea what this Shinju TNT business is, but I think drugs are involved.

For Fans Of: Sparklehorse, the Band x Devendra Banhart, kooky collectives.


Talk About Body


Sounds Like: JD Samson (Le Tigre) is one ambitious gender-queering creature. She’s got two other ladies helping her craft catchy and radically-gay dance pop.

Free Association: Maybe if we prove gays make good music, they’ll let us marry!

For Fans Of: Gossip, Peaches, Bikini Kill x Hot Chip, mustaches on ladies.


Cape Dory

(Fat Possum)

Sounds Like: Another spare debut of beachy, surfed-out dream rock from a couple (plus their drummer) full of soft effects, sunny harmonies and joyous noise.

Free Association: It’s the bands you hate on before listening that shock you the most.

For Fans Of: Beach House, Beach Boys, beach trips, beach towels.

The Lindbergh Line
