Wild Flag "Something Came Over Me" (Merge)

Band chemistry can never be understated, and this all-women group featuring two-thirds of Sleater Kinney (guitarist Carrie Brownstein and drummer Janet Weiss) has it in spades, delivering a fine-honed guitar attack with pop curves.

Wilco, "Born Alone" (dBpm)

The band's latest, "The Whole Love," is yet another fascinating chapter in its ever-expansive discography, filled with candy-coated pop songs — like this hooky little mother — that remind you of 1999's underrated "Summerteeth." No complaints here.

Glen Campbell "Ghost on the Canvas" (Surfdog)

In his swirling farewell to music, Campbell (who was recently diagnosed with Alzheimer's) is in classic AM country-politan form for his final album's title track, written by the former Replacements honcho, Paul Westerberg — "People don't know/when they're looking at soul!"

Kool and Together, "Sitting on a Red Hot Stove" (Light in the Attic)

Another solid reissue by Light in the Attic was originally inspired by a search for this sizzling '70s funk cut from a group of black Texas rockers who get downright nasty in a Funkadelic vein.

Dum Dum Girls, "Bedroom Eyes" (SubPop)

The all-female combo has a new, sophomore album, "Only in Dreams," filled with pop-punk ready mades. But the standout is this propulsive ode to lust, embellished with a near-perfect chorus. You say they don't write 'em like that anymore? You're the dum-dum.
