Trust, ‘TRST’ (Arts & Crafts)

Toronto dance duo like Dead or Alive doing a goth-trance rendition of "You Spin Me Round" [no cowbell].
Puja Patel / February 27, 2012

Ital, ‘Hive Mind’ (Planet Mu)

Sex Worker/Mi Ami dude goes "dance" via dry thud and drain-pipe clang, like a Factory tape stuck to Chicago pavement.
Philip Sherburne / February 23, 2012

Pallbearer, ‘Sorrow and Extinction’ (Profound Lore)

Heartbreaking funeral doom lays aching, operatic vocals over riffs oozing like lava. Satan wept.
J. Edward Keyes / February 23, 2012

You Won’t, ‘Skeptic Goodbye’ (Old Flame)

New England duo does a straight sprint from Vampire Weekend back to the Shins.
David Bevan / February 23, 2012

Sophia Knapp, ‘Into the Waves’ (Drag City)

Singer for Brooklyn’s Cliffie Swan takes a dreamy solo flight; basso brooder Bill Callahan adds gravitas.
Jon Young / February 23, 2012

Band of Skulls, ‘Sweet Sour’ (Vagrant)

British trio turns in gut-churning, Jack White-indebted sophomore set whose soft spots are its finest.
David Bevan / February 23, 2012

Terry Malts, ‘Killing Time’ (Slumberland)

Neurotic, nauseous, non-Christian, weekend-awaiting San Fran Ramonesmaniacs commit 14 toons in 33.5 minutes.
Keith Harris / February 23, 2012

Tindersticks, ‘The Something Rain’ (Constellation)

Eerie, blue-light ballads for a supper club in the twilight zone; Leonard Cohen gone Lynch.
J. Edward Keyes / February 23, 2012

Dierks Bentley, ‘Home’ (Capitol Nashville)

Affable, raspy country bro reports that beer is awesome, freedom ain't free, and "Diamonds Make Babies." So true.
Rob Harvilla / February 23, 2012

Sinead O’Connor, ‘How About I Be Me (and You Be You)?’ (One Little Indian)

Someday will "not be so serious," today enjoys mystic visions of Christ's blood.
Keith Harris / February 23, 2012

Black Rain, ‘Now I’m Just a Number’ (Blackest Ever Black)

The lost Johnny Mnemonic score is a post-punk alternate future where The Matrix never happened.
Philip Sherburne / February 23, 2012

Mux Mool, ‘Planet High School’ (Ghostly)

Funk nostalgia, psychedelic synths, stuttering bass make for sleepy, inoffensive hip-hop instrumentals.
Puja Patel / February 23, 2012

Polica, ‘Give You The Ghost’ (Totally Gross National Product)

Twin Cities songstress delivers tough, R&B-bent, live-wire electronica that doubles as Auto-Tune delight.
David Bevan / February 23, 2012

Pontiak, ‘Echo Ono’ (Thrill Jockey)

Three Virginia brothers spew orthodox psych-stoner noise (scuzzy guitars, slovenly voices), flirt with tedium.
Jon Young / February 23, 2012

Donato Dozzy & Neel, Voices From the Lake (Prologue)

Inspired by an outdoors set in Japan, Zen techno for mist and fireflies. The hills are alive.
