Vessel

A few weeks ago, we checked out Twenty One Pilots at the Wiltern in Los Angeles, CA. We were half-expecting to be the oldest people in attendance, but were surprised to see teenagers and adults alike jumping passionately in unison to the band's popular single,... [More]

Lazaretto

Lazaretto ($10) is everything you want from a latter-day Jack White album. Direct, catchy guitar riffs. Unexpected, eccentric touches like the eerie, theremin-esque backing vocals that underscore "Would You Fight for My Love?" A few stripped down, grainy ballads. And, of course, the fuzzy but...

In The Lonely Hour

When a single shoots from obscurity to SNL, the Top 40, and your favorite indie radio station all in a couple weeks, just like Sam Smith's "Stay With Me" did, the anticipation for (and pressure on) the full album release is going to be massive.... [More]

Do It Again

When we first heard Röyksopp and Robyn's single, "Do It Again", we decided that it needed to be added to every single running mix and dance party playlist in existence immediately (and all future mixes and playlists to come). The track is addicting, and the... [More]

Are We There

Even when the sun is out and the weather warm, we all have dark days. And even if they're few and far between, a warm summer sunset or a hazy morning can be perfect backgrounds for gorgeous, moody music. Sharon Van Etten's fourth album, Are... [More]

Guitdoorbell

Like any self-assured diva, we like to imagine music playing when we enter a room. If you want that fanfare to be heard outside of your own head, you're going to need the Guitdoorbell ($150). Hang this specialized guitar right above your doorway and it... [More]

Halcyon

If we could, we'd want British singer-songwriter Ellie Goulding's synth-laden and catchy music for the soundtrack of our lives. It would certainly make mundane activities like folding laundry a lot more entertaining. With her second album, Halcyon ($12), Goulding demonstrates her impressive range as a... [More]

Nabuma Rubberband

There's something magic in Sweden's water - at least when it comes to pop music. There are the classics - ABBA and Ace of Base - and then there's the new contemporary crop, including Robyn, Icona Pop, and the lesser known Little Dragon. They've just... [More]

Turn Blue

If you've already listened to the other seven albums by the Black Keys, you pretty much know what to expect on Turn Blue ($11). That's not to say that their style hasn't been evolving, but to say that fans won't be disappointed. It never gets... [More]

Natalie Merchant

You'd have to be one of thousands of maniacs (10,000 to be specific) to not appreciate Natalie Merchant's unique vocal style. It's been thirteen years since she last released a CD with all original material, making her new work, Natalie Merchant ($12), even more exciting.... [More]

Hunter Hunted EP

The rich harmonies of Los Angeles band Hunter Hunted are perfect for those windows-down, long summer drives. With their self-titled EP, Hunter Hunted ($3), the band demonstrates its high replay value with this catchy five-track effort. Just finishing their tour as twenty one pilots' opening... [More]

I Love You

It's nearly June and we're still singing along to The Neighbourhood's catchy hit song, "Sweater Weather." Their debut album, I Love You ($10), is an eleven track anthem for the brokenhearted (despite the misleading album title). Atmospheric and moody, these songs are for anyone who... [More]

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]

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]
