Just Tell Me That You Want Me: 

A Tribute To Fleetwood Mac

(Hear Music)

Sounds Like: A stunning collection of covers that tend toward the darker side, with a star-studded cast of indie giants: The Kills, Best Coast, Lykke Li, MGMT and Antony.

Free Association: For Mac fans who didn’t grow up with them, this is a dream come true.

For Fans Of: Lindsey/Stevie/Christine/Mick/John, Rumours x The Dance, gold dust. 


Based On A T.R.U. Story

(Island/Def Jam)

Sounds Like: The Atlanta rapper formerly known as Tity Boi dropped his name and his crew, showed up on a ton of guest spots, and his success is a complete mystery.

Free Association: So bored with his flow: slow, pompous, misogynist and drugged.

For Fans Of: Big K.R.I.T./Kanye/Weezy/Drake/Chris Brown, Nicki and strippers.


Southern Air

(Hopeless Records)

Sounds Like: Still emo-scented pop punk, but as they get older, they get better; the eighth studio effort from the Jacksonville Fla.-born stalwarts is downright decent-sounding.
