Top 15 Indie Albums, May 2012
Our latest roundup of new indie releases gathers an eclectic cast of characters. Santigold leads the way with her industrial-dub-punk sass, followed by Jack White, who has finally gone solo to release some of his most brutal retro rock to date. We've also got debuts from singer-songwriter Daughn Gibson (who creates an intriguing brew of traditional country and glitchy electronic music), Georgia's Reptar (think Vampire Weekend meets Foster the People), and the Jack White-approved Alabama Shakes (rollicking garage-soul rock). And what's a month without a Danger Mouse mention? The prolific artist produced L.A. duo Electric Guest's first offering of funky stoned-out soul. Check these out and more below.
