For Fans Of: Grizzly Bear + less-challenging Animal Collective, artier Shins.

 

Silversun Pickups

Neck Of The Woods

(Dangerbirds)

Sounds Like: The L.A. kids’ third is well-produced, fuzzy and simultaneously chill and electrified, but ultimately it’s a bit bland and not as fun as moments from the first two.

Free Association: They sound dangerously close to Placebo with that nasally voice.

For Fans Of: A Smashing Pumpkins ripoff, Weezer + Oasis, cool Silverlake hangtimes.

 

Felix

Oh Holy Molar

(kranky)

Sounds Like: A trio from England led by Lucinda Chua (piano, gorgeous voice) and Chris Summerlin, this is a poetic, compellingly simple, beautiful and bewitching listen.

Free Association: Suckers for sensitive and powerful women in music are going to die.

For Fans Of: Regina Spektor (old stuff) x Cat Power, Laura Marling, thoughtfulness.

 

Reptar

Body Faucet

(Vagrant)

Sounds Like: Athens, Ga.’s dance-rock aficionados aren’t just flashes in the pan, as we might’ve thought. They’re riding the Passion Pit wave but doing it more interestingly.
