Sounds by Mike Evans   TRIPPING DAISIES THE LONELY FOREST — Adding Up the Wasted Hours THE GOOD: Northwest indie rockers Lonely Forest bring on a tighter fourth full-length. THE BAD: A couple of clunkers aside (rambling closer “The Stars, Like Dust” sticks around far too long), most of these cuts are fine. THE NITTY GRITTY: Produced by the band with a...

Sounds by Mike Evans   COMPLICATED LADIES DUM DUM GIRLS — Too True THE GOOD: Dee Dee Penny and her latest incarnation of Girls go retro on their third full-length.

Sounds by Mike Evans   ROCK REVIVALS THE FRATELLIS — We Need Medicine THE GOOD: Scottish indie pop trio Fratellis are back with their first album in five years. THE BAD: Fratellis were never a great band. The best you could always hope for was some extremely infectious ear candy and a set list where the catchy tunes outweighed the duds. THE NITTY GRITTY:...

Sounds by Mike Evans   SLIGHT ALTERATIONS ISLANDS — Ski Mask THE GOOD: Canadian progressive indie outfit Islands come back with an unpredictable fifth. THE BAD: You take the awesome right along with the unhinged on any Islands record. Expect some extremes.
