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.

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.

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.

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.
Philip Sherburne / February 23, 2012

Lucky Dragons, ‘Existers’ (Swill Children)

Life-glitch, peace cries, and looping kalimbas: A 21-minute daily affirmation.
Christopher R. Weingarten / February 23, 2012

Wymond Miles, Earth Has Doors (Sacred Bones)

Fresh & Onlys guitarist builds shack between the Cure and Syd Barrett, records the sounds in between.
J. Edward Keyes / February 23, 2012

Review: Windy & Carl, ‘We Will Always Be’

If your navel was as guitar-lush and drone-lovely as these ambient veterans’, you’d gaze at it too.

Review: Jonquil, ‘Point of Go’

Overripe English cheese strives for Aztec Camera’s state of grace, but smells more like Wham!
