The Kills

Blood Pressures

(Domino)

Sounds Like: Snarling and bluesy garage punk duo from the American badass Allison Mosshart and a Brit guitarist, their fourth is a kickass collection of simple, smart tracks.

Free Association: A little concerned—when’s there gonna be a new Dead Weather record?

For Fans Of: White Stripes, drum machines, PJ Harvey, Kate Moss, angry lady rock.

The Steve Miller Band

Let Your Hair Down

(Roadrunner)

Sounds Like: So Miller’s 67 and fond of his Wisconsin roots, and in his old age has decided to make a couple blues records for other old people who love Chicago blues.

Free Association: Was hoping there’d be ten versions of “Wild Mountain Honey” on here.

For Fans Of: Spin Doctors, harmonica, covers of blues songs by an old white man.

O’Death

Outside

(Ernest Jenning)

Sounds Like: New York-based SUNY friends who’ve been getting deeper and darker into a creepy, Americana goth folk vibe that they really go for here on their third.

Free Association: This is some Ichabod Crane shit. These guys should meet Tim Burton.

For Fans Of: Neutral Milk + Neil Young/the Pogues, screaming winds, slamming doors.
