Funeral Party is a post punk four-piece from Los Angeles. Their debut LP, The Golden Age of Knowhere, featured a handful of good tracks, but my favorite is definitely “New York City Moves To The Sound of L.A.”. If you’re a fan of LCD Soundsystem, you’ll probably enjoy this track as much as I do.

If you’re a fan of Joy Division bass lines and analog synths straight out of the ’80s, i’d be truly surprised if you disliked John Maus’ latest LP, We Must Become the Pitiless Censors of Ourselves. The LP is chock-full of fantastic tracks, but in my personal opinion, it’s the final track, “Believer”, that stands out the most.

I honestly don’t much about WU LYF (World Unite Lucifer Youth Foundation), but I really dug their debut LP, Go Tell Fire to the Mountain. I do know they hail from Manchester, England, and a four-piece that specializes in the self-described genre “heavy pop”. WU LYF were one of the biggest “buzz bands” of 2011 and I expect to hear a lot more from these guys in the coming years.

Safari Disco Club is the second studio album by French electropop trio, Yelle. I was a big fan of their first LP, Pop Up, and Safari quickly became a favorite of mine and staple for dance party playlists.
