The B-52’s – Funplex (rock)

There was a time in college when I couldn’t escape “Love Shack.” Overexposure killed that song for me, but Funplex I can deal with. The same B-52’s sound that you know, with a new set of hip-square tunes.

Head of Femur – Great Plains (rock)

I’m a bit of a sucker for baroque-folk: quirky songs with expansive instrumentation. Sufjan Stevens is the captain of this genre. Head of Femur isn’t far behind. Great Plains rocks a little harder, with cameos of everything from banjo to melodica. I’m still waiting for the next Sufjan album, but this will tide me over in the meantime.
