Happy Birthday is Sup Pop Records’ latest signing, and they’re a hook-heavy powerpop trio from Vermont, and we’ve got tracks from their self-titled debut–plus, a look at some similar bands.

We’ve also got some ’70s Nigerian Afrobeat from the, fresh off a new compilation from Soundway Records: Nigeria Afrobeat Special.

To wrap things up, it’s experimental electronics from Canadian music producer Caribou. Caribou’s latest album is Swim, and it’s where the strict intricacy of mathematics meets the irresistible grooves of dance music.
