Jenny and Johnny

I’m Having Fun Now

(Warner Brothers)

Sounds Like: Jenny Lewis and Jonathan Rice take their romance into the studio to capitalize on their chemistry and actually do it; sunny, charming folksy duets.

Free Association: Possible that the Jenny-heavy songs are better. Likely even.

For Fans Of: Rilo Kiley, She & Him (done better), Beach Boys. 

Mark Ronson & The Business Intl.

Record Collection

(SONY music/RCA)

Sounds Like: The super producer’s funky, soulful pop music with chunks of hip-hop and crazy guests—Boy George, Q-Tip, Spank Rock.

Free Association: Remember when Philly’s own Plastic Little hung out with dude in England? That was awesome!

For Fans Of: Beasties x Amy Winehouse, DJ Shadow, Outkast, cheeba.

Suuns

Zeroes QC

(Secretly Canadian)

Sounds Like: Energetic and propulsive dance rock debut with constant, powerful drumming, glitchy rhythms, abrasive guitars and always a proper groove.

Free Association: Another Montreal discovery, but this time it’s not arty emo rock, hooray!

For Fans Of: LCD Soundsystem, Beck x the Fall, Hot Chip.
