PIETY STREET (EMARCY) BACKED BY A KILLER BAND THAT INCLUDES JOHN CLEARY, GEORGE PORTER JR. (OF METERS FAME), RICKY FATAAR, JOHN BOUTTé, AND SHANNON POWEL, SCOFIELD DISHES UP NEW ORLEANS-TINGED GOSPEL AND BLUES WITH A JAZZY FLOURISH.



MEXICAN INSTITUTE OF SOUND:
SOY SAUCE (NACIONAL)

Camilio Lara is the Mexican Institute of Sound, and here he teams up with producer Holger Beier to once again blend electronica and hip-hop with traditional Mexican music.



SHOUT OUT OUT OUT OUT:

The six-piece Canadian electronic/dance/rock outfit features two drummers and multiple bassists, and uses all analog synths.



AKRON FAMILY:
SET 'EM WILD SET 'EM FREE (DEAD OCEANS)
