Big Harp
"Nadine"

Despondency, flight, new bruises: You've heard it all before, but with some ragtime piano magic and a little pep in their step, Chris and Stefanie Senseney make bad-news story-song blues feel almost new.

Girls
"Die"

Faux-metal hysterics are the last thing you'd expect from no-hope wasters who pursued asexual puerility with such la-de-da aplomb with last year's "Lust for Life," yet anyway, here we are: It's happening, it's gnarly, and it only gets better after they've actually killed you and you're crowd-surfing the upraised suction cups of dozens of octopi.

Modeselektor feat. Thom Yorke
"Shipwreck"

So basically this is Yorke freestyling over the edgiest ephedrine synth-pop answering-machine music ever, if a category for that sort of thing can even be said to exist. Don't you remember that episode of Fresh Prince when Carleton overdosed on speed?

M+A
"Yes.pop"

The only thing cooler than the idea of some celestial titan shaking the cosmos like a snow globe is the idea of a celestial titan shaking the cosmos like a snow globe while covered in glitter, doing "The Carleton."

Teeth
"Care Bear"

Bands like this almost hand the U.K. music press its raison de etre: XX-chromosome impudence, some genuine TMZ-level controversy, volume, a hint of naughtiness. They're angry, they're angst-y, electro-clash never happened; that side needed its own Crystal Castles, we get it. Yet debut Whatever's got something going for it, something that's got a lock on my attention span; I just haven't figured out what that is yet.
