The Dead Weather : Sea of Cowards

Folk rock for the new decade.

The Unthanks : Here’s The Tender Coming

Traditional, yet tastefully antiquated.

Xiu Xiu : Dear God, I Hate Myself

Brevity trumps overstatement.

Jack Rose : Luck In the Valley

Stunning posthumous release from late guitarist.

Dark Meat : Truce Opium

Athens trippers channel their elf power.
