Pond
Hobo Rocket
(Modular)

Sounds like: Close cousins to fellow Aussies Tame Impala, members of their touring team keep getting tighter; this one’s loud, psychedelic and slick.

Free association: If a TI show’s any indication, these guys wail extra on weed.

For fans of: Unknown Mortal Orchestra x MGMT + Yuck, White Denim, bugging out.

 

KT Tunstall
Invisible Empire // Crescent Moon
(Virgin/EMI)

Sounds like: A decidedly more earnest and humble collection, which is nice, because the FM pop radio KT is a little abrasive, unless you dig corny white girls.

Free association: Didn’t see this one coming. Bracing for hate was unnecessary.

For fans of: Dido x Sheryl Crow + acoustic Fiona Apple, Shelby Lynne, quiet estrogen.
