Eleanor Friedberger


Last Summer


(Merge)


Sounds Like: Fantastic solo debut from the Fiery Furnaces sister with a strong, commanding voice and solid gold ’70s-influenced groove production behind her.


Free Association: That last name does not represent how funky this girl can get.


For Fans Of: St. Vincent x Linda Ronstadt, 
Joan as Police Woman, soda jingles.


Redlight King


Something For The Pain


(Hollywood)


Sounds Like: Mark Kasperczk is a foolish white man from Ontario with lots of tats, who makes speak-singing half-rapping crap rock that harkens back to Everlast.


Free Association: You got Neil Young to sign off on sampling “Old Man?” SONOFABITCH!


For Fans Of: G Love + Linkin Park, Kid Rock x Uncle Kracker, Disney-OK’d rock.


Pink Flag


King Of Scene EP


(Break Yr Heart)


Sounds Like: This Durham, N.C., trio of lady punks is going places. This is their first EP after a few years of silence; they’ve matured, calmed down (a little) and practiced a lot.


Free Association: Imagine Vivian Girls as modest, talented and thoughtful musicians.


For Fans Of: Sleater-Kinney, Liz Phair x the Gossip, 
feminism, not taking bullshit.


Paper City
