Femme FatalityBackroom Darlings from That’s It, That’s It
out now on Stickfigure Recordings

Devo-esque grooves with a little less nerd and a lot more flare.

First Aid KitThe Lion’s Roar from The Lion’s Roar LP
out 1/24/12 on Wichita Recordings

This poignant ballad comes from sisters Klara and Johanna Söderberg of Stockholm, Sweden. They’re touring with Lykke Li on limited dates in the US, UK, and Europe from November through January. An interesting folk construction that harkens back to Sandy Denny‘s days in Fairport Convention.

Spectrals – Big Baby [free download]
from Bad Penny out now on Slumberland

Spectrals (aka Louis Jones) updates a classic sound on this track. The guitar lingers a little more, and the reverb makes it a bit eerie, but it works well.

Weird DreamsHolding Nails
from the Holding Nails single
out 10/31 on Tough Love

Weird Dreams claims the Beach Boys and David Lynch as influences; yeah, we get that. Think Brian Wilson goes new wave.
