No Witch

(Jagjaguwar)

Sounds Like: Seattleites who formed after Pretty Girls Make Graves split, sound nothing like PGMG. They’ve chosen the folksy, countrified movement to dominate.

Free Association: Capitalizing on the bearded workerwear moment better than anyone.

For Fans Of: Fleet Foxes, Beirut x Silver Jews, gritty Pacific NW soulfulness.

DJ Vadim presents The Electric

Life Is Moving

(Organically Grown Sounds)

Sounds Like: Russia’s premier turntablist (there aren’t many) recruits a soulful U.K. songstress and an emcee for a slick and funky package of low-key, chill hip-hop.

Free Association: S’like Lucy Pearl if Saadiq

rapped and Ali Shaheed was more DJ Shadowy.

For Fans Of: Herbaliser, Roots Manuva + Aaliyah,ambient hip-hop.

Cut/Copy

Zonoscope

(Modular Recordings)

Sounds Like: The Aussie quartet’s third is already a sensation of disco- inspired electro dance music right on trend and perfect for spring-hungry dancing hipsters.

Free Association: Now carrying the dance torch handed off by LCD Soundsystem.

For Fans Of: Daft Punk x Caribou, Air + Erasure,ecstatic late-night freakouts.
