If you want pop with a lot of lasting power, don't look any further than the new Sunset Rubdown LP, Dragonslayer. It's an album of song-length epics that grow on any attentive listener. This album was intensely labored over, and it shows in the music. Thankfully, it doesn't take a lot of hard work to enjoy it.
We've also got the lush soundtrack-ready sounds of the new Belle & Sebastian sideproject God Help the Girl. New music from Mika Miko, the Hood Internet, and the Budos Band comes to tear things up, too.
