We Are Rising

(Anticon)

Sounds Like: Complex electronic pop arrangements from a composer and trained pianist making spooky compositions with strange noises and rhythms.

Free Association: This is the kind of ish 21st-century “composers” should be doing 24/7.

For Fans Of: Sufjan Stevens’s newest, MGMT + Owen Pallett, trippin’.

Kristeen Young

V The Volcanic EP

(Self-released)

Sounds Like: Slightly strange but impressive set of seven songs based on seven films of the last seven decades.

Free Association: This weirdo’s been at it since ’97! Must listen to 2003’s Breasticles.

For Fans Of: Kate Bush + PJ Harvey, Dresden Dolls, octave climbing.

Damon and Naomi

False Beats and True Hearts

(20/20/20/Ba Da Bing)

Sounds Like: Dreamy indie rock from Galaxie 500’s drummer and bassist, as peaceful and ethereal as the rest of their catalogue.

Free Association: Somebody must’ve killed their cat or something; record’s full of sadness.

For Fans Of: Yo La Tengo + Mazzy Star.
