The Dø … Both Ways Open Jaws … 2011

The Dø’s brand of Euro folk-pop is really freaking edible. Simple and sugary but fully human, the female vocals feel comfortable and nostalgic, and just a little bit elusive. The singer sound like if Bjork did less out-there stuff. I’m in love with this. Staff pick!

RIYL Violent Femmes, Bjork, Lykki Li

Purity Ring … Shrines … 2012

This is one of the strongest, most self-assured debut albums I’ve ever heard. Young band (formed in 2010) with young members: Corin Roddick is 21, Megan is 24. Lush production is futuristic and and pristine. Voice is auto-tuned to the gills, almost otherworldly. Try this out.

Aleks Girshevich Trio … Tomorrow … 2012

Pre-teen prodigy drummer, the son of Vlad Girshevik, the piano player. This is gorgeous jazz, with just piano, bass, and drums.
