Jan. 22: Ra Ra Riot, 'Beta Love'
Based on the Passion Pit-esque title track for the New York indie rockers' latest, the band could be on the verge of a real breakout--or at least increased interest from listeners who want something less intimate than RRR's previous stuff. That said, "When I Dream" reflects the usual, beautiful warmth, so "Beta Love," the band's first record as a quartet (cellist Alexandra Lawn will be missed), could be a special mix of the old and new.
Excitement level: 8
