Free Association: By having pretty smart songs and a violinist, they beat a lot of peers. 

For Fans Of: The Get Up Kids x Brand New, Blink-182 + Fall Out Boy, poppy punk.

Dead Can Dance


(Pias America)

Sounds Like: The former 4AD duo’s first in 16 years is true to form. They blend sad Eastern/Mediterranean traditional sounds, then mix it with modern gothic dream pop.

Free Association: Eight songs in 56 minutes means lots of airy, dreamy space-drifting.

For Fans Of: Kate Bush x Yanni, Gregorian Chant + The Psychedelic Furs, Greece.

Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti

Mature Themes

(4AD Records)

Sounds Like: The L.A.-based multi-instrumentalist’s Haunted Graffiti project crafts intriguing collections of lo-fi, retro-tinged psychedelia meets harmonious indie rock.

Free Association: The deadpan delivery makes it feel almost like a joke, but it’s for real.

For Fans Of: Brian Eno x Magnetic Fields, R. Stevie Moore, strange L.A. hippie dudes.


Fragrant World

(Secretly Canadian)
