This week’s pick:

Canadian four-piece Dragonette, made up of former folk/acoustic solo-artist-turned-bad girl Martina Sorbara and husband Dan Kurtz of drum & bass trio The New Deal. Drummer Joel Stouffer and guitarist Will Stapleton complete the package. Mostly labeled as an amalgam of electronica and pop, (or “purveyors of shagtronic pop” as Guardian Unlimited put it), the only sure bet is that you can definitely dance to it. Or shag.


Metric & K-OS. Like this wasn’t your first choice anyway.
