Dum Dum Girls

He Gets Me High EP

(Sub-Pop)

Sounds Like: After a debut of lo-fi punk-inspired girl rock a year ago, this four-track EP, including a Smith’s cover, is a good sign they’re trying different sounds and vibes.

Free Association: Dee Dee and her ladies would make a bangup Bangles cover band.

For Fans Of: Vivian Girls x Raveonettes, Ramones + Best Coast, Suicide Girls.

The Cars

Move Like This

(Hear Music)

Sounds Like: What started in ’77 in Boston has become one of the best new wave synth pop bands of all time, and they prove they’re still full of ’80s-tastic rockness.

Free Association: Ric Ocasek & Co. would make the most kickass prom band ever.

For Fans Of: Roxy Music x Devo, Soft Cell, the Police, Just One of the Guys.

Sloan

The Double Cross

(Yep Roc)

Sounds Like: ’90s rock legends make great, shiny and anthemic rock steeped in handclaps, tambourines and clean, digestible vocals.

Free Association: It’s totally true, Canada’s rock history’s got a “secret gem” buried deep.

For Fans Of: Michael Penn for Cheap Trick, Apples in Stereo, Molson.

Son Lux
