Named in homage to both Iggy Pop and The Vaselines, DUM DUM GIRLS might be the smartest band ever to put ‘60s girl group sounds through a garage rock meat grinder. Their first LP I Will Be was “a blistering half-hour of menacing, witty bubblegum pop,” (Pitchfork) and every release since has been a revelatory combination of deep musical references and pure adrenaline.

On-the-rise Brooklynites HOSPITALITY released its sophomore album Trouble earlier this year on Merge, and the record is a major leap forward artistically from the disarmingly simple indie pop of its well-received 2012 self-titled album, Trouble “makes a point of showing its listeners the difference between ‘beautiful’ and ‘cute.’ There are moments of real beauty . . . whereas other parts of this album are distinctly not easy. “I Miss Your Bones” recalls the squirmy riffs of Television.” (Pitchfork)

Brooklyn sister act TEEN—lead singer Teeny Lieberson, keyboardist Lizzie Lieberson, drummer Katherine Lieberson, and bassist Boshra AlSaadi—also put out its second full length in 2014. The Way and Color infuses their brooding pop with minimalist beats and complex harmonies inspired by D’Angelo and Erykah Badu’s classic R&B.
