Who? With undeniably infectious hooks and never-boring pop formulation, D.C.-born, Philadelphia-based three-piece Jukebox the Ghost rekindle the communal, sing-along pop styling of '60s FM radio with their excellent debut full-length, Let Live and Let Ghosts.

Boasting an array of influences (notably Ben Thornewill's training as a classical pianist), the guitar, drum, and piano outfit get hands clapping and pipes shouting in unison on everything from cheery verse-chorus-verse dittiesto dreamy multiple-movement miniature rock operas. Jukebox the Ghost is a refreshing reminder that the lighthearted electricity of a fantastic pop song is still filled with live wires.

Recommended if you like... Ben Folds Five, Weezer, the Decemberists, the Rocket Summer.

Their latest: Let Live and Let Ghosts, out now via the Rebel Group.
