What makes for a classic rock lyric? Effortlessly revealing multiple meanings at once. Take the opening of "Out of the Gray" by Austin, Texas band Moonlight Towers: "Like a house on fire / I can't watch you burn / There's no justice served / And no lesson learned." And what makes for a classic rock recording? Just about everything heard in this catchy, melodic, guitar-and-harmony-driven tune.

There's nothing reclusive about the elegant sound of Hermit's Victory. The new track "Night Owl" serves as a warm invitation to saunter and sway with the Charleston, South Carolina group through a jazzy, post-lounge nightscape.

Best Girl Athlete features the voice and songwriting of Katie Buchan, a Scottish teenager who displays an uncanny gift for lush, classically-infused folk pop (not to mention a knowing Burt Bacharach and Hal David reference), as beautifully displayed on the new track "He's Calling Me Over."

Song of the Day: 'Blameless' by CaveofswordS

What first impresses on "Blameless," the new single by St. Louis-based electronic-music group CaveofswordS, is simply the melody: the way it flows in and out and around and through the host of percussive and synthetic textures. The melody is carried by Sunyatta McDermott's seraphic voice, but it's also absolutely inseparable from each musical element. In short: "Blameless" is glorious.

"Summer Lawns," a quintessentially unseasonal track from Mike Pace and the Child Actors, just might have enough guitar and organ overdrive (as well as some sneaky acoustic guitar sparkle) to melt away your winter blues.

Song of the Day: 'Stacks on Stacks' by Bouquet

On the new track "Stacks on Stacks," the minimalism of electronic-pop band Bouquet serves as a wide and open canvas for subtle textures and just as subtle but always vivid strokes of emotion and harmony.

Song of the Day: 'Voodoo Doll' by Diamond Rugs

A little skronky, a little anxious and a whole lot of rock 'n' synth 'n' sax fun, "Voodoo Doll," by supergroup Diamond Rugs, is a study in successful musical contrasts.

The Beyoncé/Beck mashup "Single Loser (Put a Beck on It)" was probably inevitable. As it turns out, Beckyoncé's track serves as a pretty catchy (how could it not be?) and playfully ironic commentary on the whole Kanye vs. Beck Grammy kerfuffle.
