Soldier

(Jamity)

Sounds Like: Texan who lived in New York for a while but now calls Philly home, his debut is focused on songwriting, guitar parts, earnest vocals and capturing moods.

Free Association: Singer/ songwriters struggle to stick out. His songs are deeper than most.

For Fans Of: Ryan Adams, Jeff Tweedy, Rhett Miller, Neil Young.

Fleet Foxes

Helplessness Blues

(Sub-Pop)

Sounds Like: The excellent follow-up to their 2008 self-titled debut—it’s no surprise, this one’s full of swelling harmonies, peaceful instrumentation and strong songwriting.

Free Association: Full of ecstasy and emotion; these are great sex records, give it a go.

For Fans Of: America x the Shins, Neil Young + Mumford & Sons, beards, longhairs.

The Globes

Future Self

(Barsuk)

Sounds Like: An impressive, well-produced debut from a nerdy, moody Spokane, WA, quartet who moved to Seattle and kept at their brand of dark and angular indie rock.

Free Association: Standard 20-something white rock from the NW; which is to say real good.

For Fans Of: Death Cab x Unwound, Morphine + Cults + Minus The Bear, rain, dope.
