The Hives
"Lex Hives"
Disques Hives

The Hives are bringing listeners back to the yesteryear of garage rock on "Lex Hives." But rather than simply return to the 1960s and '70s punk and garage breeding ground, the Hives seem to venture only as far back as their own earliest recordings.

Béla Fleck and the Marcus Roberts Trio featuring Rodney Jordan and Jason Marsalis
"Across the Imaginary Divide"
Rounder

"Across the Imaginary Divide" is another foray for Béla Fleck into jazz, coupling with a pianist much as he has done with Chick Corea in their live shows and on their CD "The Enchantment" (2007). The trio is filled out by Rodney Jordan on bass and Jason Marsalis on drums.

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.

Justin Townes Earle
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.

Self-released
