Seven-piece New Orleans rock 'n' rhythm 'n' groove band the Revivalists rev up their sound without losing their Southern soul feel on the new track "Keep Going."
Best Girl Athlete, aka Katie Buchan, lends a cool and dreamy air, in part courtesy of her Aberdeen Scotland roots, to the piano and strings-based ballad "Talk."
On the new track "Queen Mary," producer Bradley Will's electronic minimalism provides the tension. The voice of Austin, Texas' Francine Thirteen provides the searing, provocative beauty: “What good is your crown / With your heart on the ground? / Oh Mary…."
A lazy summer day, a winding river and a soundtrack courtesy of Dana Falconberry, whose "Crooked River" beautifully captures the feeling of a daydream far away from the madding crowds.
St. Louis jazz legends the Bosman Twins are back with a new album this year, and the sultry, melodic track "Many Moons" is yet another reminder of why the brothers are so beloved in this city and beyond.
The duo of Graham Fish and Jeff Musgrave, aka Strange & Primitive, create an imagistic, moody, synth-pop archetype on the new track "That Big City Glow."

In advance of "Currents," its third album (due out July 17 2015), Tame Impala has shared a new track, "Let It Happen," a sprawling excursion into and extension of the psych-influenced rock they've embraced since starting out in Perth, Australia in 2007.
UK band Boys is apparently so new that 1) they don't have a promo photo, 2) they haven't played a live show yet (that's TBA, but probably September 2015) and 3) there's only the faintest traces of buzz. But if the demo track "Us" is any indication, you'll be hearing more about these young rockers very soon.
The Portland, Oregon band Thanks fires up a dark and danceable sound on "Bad Tattoos." Contrary to the song's title, there's nothing regrettable about it.
