Debo Band, "Asha Gedawo" (SubPop)

From its upcoming debut for Sub Pop, the joyous Boston collective performs an upbeat hybrid of '70s Ethiopian, klezmer and big-band music that stoked crowds at the 2012 New Orleans Jazz Fest.

The Band, "4% Pantomime" (Capitol)

Many have been pulling out old Band records in the wake of Levon Helm's death; this studio practice take from its "A Musical History" box set features a spectacular singing duel between two intensely soulful singers, Richard Manuel and Van Morrison.

Heavy Cream, "I Know This" (Infinity Cat)

This femme-led Nashville garage band scores big on its third pop-punk release, "Super Treatment," produced by Ty Segall. The centerpiece is this infectious chunk of anthemic rabble-rousing.

Toro YMoi, "Ektelon" (Carpark)

One of the more eclectic artists from the chill-wave genre, Chaz Bundick of South Carolina gets his bass-heavy, lo-fi indie rock on in this pre-summer song filled with creative longing, or is it lounging, from the reissued "June 2009."

Father John Misty, "Hollywood Forever Cemetery Sings" (SubPop)

This standout cut from "Fear Fun," the debut solo effort from the former drummer for the Fleet Foxes, isn't about Richmond's Hollywood Cemetery. But it's appropriately gothic and otherworldly all the same. "We should let this dead guy sleep," indeed.
