Bang Bang You’ll Be Missed

(Self Released)

Sounds Like: More arty youth from Quebec in this drums/bass/guitar trio making electric rock that bounces between thrashy, fuzzy noise and subdued, pensive melodies.

Free Association: The bassist is super cute (he waited on me in Montreal); this EP’s solid!

For Fans Of: Denali, Karen O, Metric x Corin Tucker, the Go-Gos.

James Vincent McMorrow

Early In The Morning

(Vagrant)

Sounds Like: A beautifully mystifying blend of folk, country and soul with the classic approach to a debut LP—hole up in an apartment with a mic and write.

Free Association: He’s the Irish Justin Vernon, clearly. You’re rich dude!

For Fans Of: Bon Iver + the Pogues, Fleet Foxes x Mayer Hawthorne.

Pearl Jam

Live On Ten Legs

(Universal)

Sounds Like: Vedder and Co.’s seventh live LP isn’t so heavy on the hits, more like they’re proving they can still be loud and on tempo, but with a few gems to admire.

Free Association: Ten’s comin’ up on its 20th anniversary. They’ve come a long way.

For Fans Of: Neil Young, Sonic Youth, Bush, Seattle, old balls, rock.

Awol One & Factor

The Landmark

(Fake Four/Side Road)
