For Fans Of: Iggy Pop, the Jam/Television, Buzzcocks ’n’ Blondie, N.Y.C. punk.

 

Garbage

Not Your Kind Of People

(Stunvolume)

Sounds Like: The American-born, Scottish-fronted gritty alt-rock legends of the late ’90s’ first new material in seven years and they’re as garage/alt as we remember.

Free Association: Angela’s My So-Called Life flanneled-emotions brought to 2012.

For Fans Of: Republica/Elastica, Alanis Morissette x Poe + Lush, rock nostalgia.

 

Kris Allen

Thank You Camellia

(RCA)

Sounds Like: The Idol winner’s second pop rock LP is as watered-down and mom-friendly as ever; there are times where it’d be forgivable to confuse him with Jason Mraz.

Free Association: Far from a challenging listen, except when he pours on the sensitivity.

For Fans Of: Matchbox Twenty x Gavin DeGraw, Matt Nathanson, white soul.

 

John Mayer

Born and Raised

(Columbia)

Sounds Like: The full-on douche and 34-year-old ex-bf of Jessica Simpson still manages to churn out annoyingly charming and innocuous (but solid) bluesy pop rock.
