The Rosebuds

Loud Planes Fly Low

(Merge)

Sounds Like: The Raleigh, N.C., dance folk rock outfit’s been a revolving door, but at the core is the love/hate relationship of multi-instrumentalist songwriters Ivan and Kelly.

Free Association: They’re divorced but keep making records—damn, that’s not easy.

For Fans Of: Yo La Tengo + Superchunk, Wye Oak, musical family court, side eyes.

Seapony

Go With Me

(Hardly Art)

Sounds Like: Wispy debut from Seattle-ites specializing in lazy, echoey swaths of retro (early ’90s meets girl rock of the ’50s/’60s) that’s about as exciting as it sounds.

Free Association: STOP MAKING BEACHY WASHED-OUT BULLSHIT!

For Fans Of: Beat Happening, She & Him, drum machines instead of a drummer.

The Vaccines

What Did You Expect From The Vaccines?

(Sony/Columbia)

Sounds Like: Fast indie rock with hints of punk and prog darkness, the London quartet has a lot of buzz behind this sick debut of catchy songs and it’s deserved.

Free Association: “Post Break-Up Sex” is so brilliant and spot on it hurts ... hurts so good.

For Fans Of: Joy Division x Surfer Blood, the Drums, big deals in Britain.

The Middle East
