Hard Bargain

(Nonesuch)

Sounds Like: The Alabama native’s 64 and still has a heavenly voice, here she delivers on almost an hour of music that’s rich, nicely backed and reflective of her career.

Free Association: Someone’s gotta show these whippersnappers how it’s done, right?

For Fans Of: Joan, Joni, Patsy, Tammy, Loretta, silver foxes.

Vivian Girls

Share The Joy

(Polyvinyl)

Sounds Like: Cool New York girls feed their fans with a batch of lazy, low-fi surf rock; a few brilliant moments, but mostly short, simply-played beachy psychedelia.

Free Association: Proof you don’t need to be good at instruments to be a successful band.

For Fans Of: Dum Dum Girls x the B-52’s; grungy, mediocre girl rockers, buzz bitches.

Panda Bear

Tomboy

(Pawtracks)

Sounds Like: A lot of the same (which is awesome) from the Animal Collective kook—plenty of found sounds, loops, droney poly-rhythms and harmonious chanting.

Free Association: Person Pitch is sacred. This is like gregorian chanting for hipsters.

For Fans Of: Brian Wilson x Pink Floyd, Can, spacey stoner times, meditation.
