Despite being an ocean and several decades away, El Perro Del Mar's Sarah Assbring plays with the sounds of American Motown and 60s vocal pop as if she lived it. Her new album, From the Valley to the Stars, has a warm familiarity, but still comes off as something you don't hear every day.
And Michigan's Awesome Color has just released their second album, Electric Aborigines. These guys have the proto-punk garage sound down to a T; you can almost hear Iggy Pop rolling around in broken glass.
