CURATOR’S CHOICE

Here’s looking at shoe, kid!

Shana_FalanaThere was a time in the early ‘90s when San Francisco was America’s shoegazing capital. Shana Falana lived there when local bands hoarded effect pedals and The Brian Jonestown Massacre played regular “Soundgasm” residencies. With its gauzy guitars and wistful vocals, Set Your Lightning Fire Free sounds like a sonic celebration of Falana’s Barbary Coastal roots. –Eric Shea

Surfer Blood bring swoon-worthy balladry on their new sleepy pop single.

Surfer_BloodNot to be confused with the identically titled hit by The Who, “I Can’t Explain” was written collaboratively by the indie rock Floridians for their upcoming album 1000 Palms. You can help out their guitarist, who is being treated for a rare form of cancer, by donating here. –Michelle Solomon

 

For Years & Years, worship equals love.

Years&YearsAfter winning The BBC’s coveted Sound of 2015 poll and hitting number one in Britain with “King,” Years & Years returns with “Worship,” a polished R&B single (from their forthcoming album Communion) that’s dripping with UK garage influences. Listen closely as Olly’s Timberlake-esque vocals float over deep house synths and bouncy two-step beats. –Chris Horgan

Confrontational noise-rap combo Death Grips return with The Powers That B, a double album collecting two previously leaked LPs. 

Death_GripsNiggas On The Moon is a jumble of dizzying, beat-driven noise collages, featuring samples of Bjork on every track. Jenny Death sounds more like the work of a real band, with overdriven guitars and wild, super-distorted drumming, both cacophonous and chaotic. –Andee Connors

 

Trance out with The Ex collaborator Chalachew Ashenafi & Ililta Band

Chalachew Ashenafi & Ililta BandRepresenting his last recordings, Legendary Gondar Azmari brings us a perfect intersection of old and new blending traditional Ethiopian instruments with amplification and guitars to spin spellbinding melodies. Chalachew’s virtuosic singing twirls over a driving base of loping rhythms and masenqo (a fiddle-like instrument) like a gruff Mahmoud Ahmed. –Diego Gonzalez

American hard rockers return with another collection of hook-heavy, stadium rock crunch.

HalestormHalestorm headmistress Lzzy Hale leads the charge, fusing fist-pumping, classic rock to more modern, Warped Tour emo. Into The Wild Life delivers headbanging riffage, anthemic sing-alongs and a swampy, supercharged swagger that occasionally finds them sounding like Paramore crossed with AC/DC – which is definitely not a bad thing. –Andee Connors
