Wavepool Abortion

(DZ Tapes)

Sounds Like: Two Russian teens’ debut, singing in English because they love the Beatles (and the Ramones); a solid effort of sludgy, charmingly poppy proto-punk.

Free Association: Kids putting out great records before hitting 18 is only a lil’ depressing.

For Fans Of: Iceage x Buddy Holly, No Age/Liars, Putin’s pecks, Sputnik.

Dom

Family of Love [EP]

(Astralwerks)

Sounds Like: Worcester, Mass., wayfarers’ second EP (no LP yet) isn’t quite the brilliance of their debut, but it’s lively, poppy and intoxicating garage rock nonetheless.

Free Association: Pitchfork perfect! Quirky story, lazy/hazy aesthetic, lo-fi and ironic.

For Fans Of: MGMT x Girls, Cults + Passion Pit, bands who love weed and ecstasy.

Lotus

Lotus

(Sci Fidelity)

Sounds Like: The Indiana-bred Philly-settled foursome specialize in inoffensive, adult-tempered jammy electro-jazz with grooves, instrumentals and samples.

Free Association: Imagine the disappointment upon realizing this is NOT Flying Lotus.

For Fans Of: Tortoise x the Orb + Phish, Trans Am, working-from-home soundtracks.
