The 1975

The 1975 is a four-piece British rock band fronted by the crush-worthy Matthew Healy (his long, wavy locks and sensitive eyes give us Jordan Catalano flashbacks like you wouldn't believe). Their debut album, The 1975 ($10), is a polished compilation of their earlier EPs with... [More]

iFrogz Tadpole Bluetooth Speaker

Proving that small stature and big sound aren't mutually exclusive, the iFrogz Tadpole Bluetooth Speaker ($20) clocks in at under three inches in height and two inches in width while still delivering a loud enough sound to fill a room. It's completely portable; clip it... [More]

300 Days at Sea

Our Liz Phair Pandora station (oh, yes) kept playing tunes that sounded familiar, yet...not. Turns out, one of our other nineties indie artist obsessions released an album in 2012. 300 Days at Sea ($14) is Heather Nova's latest and it's full of nostalgia-inducing sound. Don't... [More]

Shriek

Delightful indie band Wye Oak has returned with a new album, Shriek ($11). This time around, the band has dropped its signature guitar-led tracks, instead opting for a new synthesizer sound. While it's a solid and thoughtful album, longtime fans may miss the kind of... [More]

I Never Learn

Lykke Li's new album, I Never Learn ($10), is a bummer, in that every single song is about heartbreak. But although none of the songs are particularly danceable, not all of them are down-in-the-dumps ballads, either. Li's piercing voice, predilection for layers of instruments and... [More]

Love and Hate

You might remember Joan Osborne from such songs as "One of Us" and... well, really just "One of Us" (In all seriousness, the entirety of that '90s album, Relish, was great, regardless of whether the songs were all radio hits.) Nearly twenty years later, Osborne... [More]

The New Classic - Iggy Azalea

While it's definitely a reach to call Iggy Azalea's first full-length album a classic, The New Classic ($13) is still a fun listen. Azalea, rap's eccentric it-girl of the moment, combines hip hop with pop-friendly riffs that'll stick to your brain. Given that she's an... [More]
