Car Seat Headrest, Teens of Style (Oct. 30)

Brooklyn-via-Canada electronic duo Bob Moses, who have no connection to the actual Bob Moses, broke big at Burning Man in 2013 but will release their first full-length, Days Gone By Sept. 18 via Domino. After two EPs that attracted EDM heads and indie acclaim, Jimmy Vallance says they now have the confidence to put out an album. “Those first two EPs were kind of us exploring the sounds and production techniques that we thought maybe… we couldn’t get away with before,” he tells EW. The duo’s other half, Tom Howie, who provides vocals on all the tracks, explains the group’s lyrical depth, which can be sparse in dance music. “We’re both most excited about the sonic frontier of electronic music. That’s what we’re interested in sound-wise, but we grew up loving great songs and listening to a lot of the Beatles and Rolling Stones.” Which makes sense considering Vallance says they write on acoustic guitars and pianos to strip down the sound before setting up electronics. “We really try to marry the two things.” — Kevin O’Donnell
