Jay Reatard's legacy may be defined by his quirky punk tradition present in 'It Ain't Gonna Save Me.'  The video is darkly comical, as well.

Kurt Vile - 'Jesus Fever'

'Jesus Fever' is one of the best rock songs of 2011 in my opinion.  Kurt Vile uses sharp note changes on his guitar to provide a palatable offering of delicious singer-songwriter soul food in 'Jesus Fever.'

Jacuzzi Boys - 'Smells Dead'

No, you didn't just fall into a hot tub time machine.  Although Jacuzzi Boys sound strikingly similar to Pixies, the band is fairly new to the indie scene.  Iggy Pop is apparently a fan.

'Smells Dead' is a brilliant continuation of all that was good in alternative music in 1991.

Artist Spotlight: James Vincent McMorrow

Dublin singer/songwriter James Vincent McMorrow plays a brand of indie folk with harmonies akin to artists likes Bon Iver, Iron & Wine and Fleet Foxes.

McMorrow's slightly raspy falsetto whispers with soulful introspection and longing. His tone and delivery are quietly haunting and seductive.

Songs like "Follow You Down to the Red Oak Tree", "Down the Burning Ropes", and first single, "If I Had a Boat" weave a slow-burning, mysterious tension and intrigue.

McMorrow's self-recorded debut, Early in the Morning, was released in the UK a year ago, but just received stateside treatment in January 2011.

To set out with a batch of songs with such composure on a first record shows tremendous promise for the future of James Vincent McMorrow.

Listen to McMorrow's "If I Had a Boat" and "Down the Burning Ropes" below, and visit his
official website to learn more about this great new artist's music.

Seryn - 'We Will All Be Changed'

Seryn is a quintet from Denton, Texas playing an anthemic variety of jangly folksiness that soars with multi-part vocal harmonies.

The group has been steadily winning accolades for their live performances, including a recent stint in Austin which Paste Magazine named one of its '10 Favorite SXSW 2011 Performances'.

In 2009, Portugal. The Man released The Satanic Satanist, but the band never quite received the recognition it fully deserved.
