Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros
"Here"
Vagrant

From a distance, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros could be mistaken for a musically-inclined cult.

The Walkmen
"Heaven"
Fat Possum

The Walkmen have transcended steadily into their sound on "Heaven," with propulsive drum beats and harmonized vocals not unlike those of the Everly Brothers.

Best Coast
"The Only Place"
Mexican Summer

On Best Coast's second album "The Only Place," singer-songwriter Bethany Cosentino's ultra-polished voice gives the power to L.A.-based power pop duo Best Coast, and, stripped of the fuzzy lo-fi quality of their last album, sometimes sounds a little too perfect for a band with a retro California/slacker reputation.

Screaming Females
"Ugly"
Don Giovanni

The incendiary punkish alt-rock trio Screaming Females may contain only one female member -- lead singer and guitarist Marissa Paternoster -- but the band's name is not inaccurate; Paternoster herself contains multitudes.

Silversun Pickups
"Neck of the Woods"
Dangerbird

As a Silversun Pickups record, "Neck of the Woods" sounds exactly like you'd expect it to: cascading guitars, distorted shimmer and Nikki Monninger's breathily-insistent vocals cosseted in waves of reverb that wash through the speakers.

Nothing's Gonna Change the Way You Feel About Me Now
Bloodshot

That Justin Townes Earle would begin his career in the shadow of other great songwriters was unavoidable; after all, his father is Steve Earle, and he carries the name of late Texas songwriter Townes Van Zandt.

Lucero
"Women & Work"
ATO

With their latest studio record, "Women & Work," the alt-country rockers known as Lucero have managed to harness fully the music of their hometown to make their most Memphis-sounding record yet.

"Rotten Taters"
Mike Compton
Self-released

"Rotten Taters" is, unbelievably, the first solo release from a mandolinist that, despite playing Carnegie Hall and the White House, simply should be more widely known than he is.

Punch Brothers
"Who's Feeling Young Now?"
Nonesuch

"Who's Feeling Young Now?" will prove to be one of the most respected, lauded, challenging and influential works of the year. But that doesn't mean you'll like it.
