Stevie B Wolf may make music through the prism of his experience with depression, ADD and Tourette’s Syndrome, but a track like "Nothing But a Name" isn't looking for sympathy. For all its melancholy themes, like any excellent pop-rock song, it wants you to sing and dance along, and feel liberated while doing so.
Blitzen Trapper returns this fall with a new album that keeps its focus on the lyrical folk, rock and twang that's been its strong suit. The new track, "Lonesome Angel," is the Portland, Oregon band at its best.
Montclair, New Jersey band Stolen Jars, featuring Molly Grund and Cody Fitzgerald, threads together delicate indie folk with sparkling and rhythmic electronic sounds on the new track "Bright Red."
Portland, Oregon by way of Kansas City band Minden infuses disco pop with velvety harmonies and playful electronic touches on the new track "Saint."
With a deliciously stutter-stepping rhythm, funky, serpentine guitar lines and a chorus that just won't quit, "Summertime" by Charleston, South Carolina band the High Divers makes a strong bid for a beach-bound playlist.

Jessica Lee Wilkes makes an impressive debut as she swings and strolls through a classic New Orleans R&B sound on the irresistible "Love Like Crazy."

Inspired by a quote from "On the Road," the new track "Wildfire" by the Mynabirds shows mercurial singer and songwriter Laura Burhenn at her catchiest and artfully fervent best.
