Song of the Day: 'Get Found' by Qiet

Qiet is one vowel short of being a misnomer, as the shape-shifting, Huntington, W.Va.-based big band (as in one never knows how many members it will have at any musical moment) slams together everything from gypsy jazz to indie pop to wild rock to soul and funk. The latter gets fully amped-up on the new track "Get Found."

There's always been something just a little icy about dream pop, but when coupled with a pulsing bass, a sincere, delicate falsetto and a finely detailed mix, the chill really can carry you away. "Best Intentions" by Los Angeles band Satchmode (Gabe Donnay and Adam Boukis) does just that.

Warping time back three decades, Matthew Sweet and Susanna Hoffs do renditions of songs from the '80s on "Under the Covers, Vol. 3" -- minus the big hair, shoulder pads and neon clothing.

Song of the Day: 'Los Angeles' by Memoir

Los Angeles isn't just a city; it's an idea. It's ground zero for fantasy and failing, "the end of the world" as one writer put it. The band Memoir channels those themes into a contemporary soul-pop sound that has "learned to fly" beyond the city of angels.
