The twangy tunes of alt-country’s OLD 97’s, kick up your boots to the offbeat jangles of Bastard Sons of Johnny Cash‘s new Walk Alone.

Eurythmics-style ’80s synth-pop crossed with Stereolab-style ’90s Eurobeat, Ladytron‘s latest album, 604, will keep you dancing in the new millennium.

The vocal harmonies and hard rock edge of King’s X on 1990’s Faith, Hope, Love, fall in love with Diffuser‘s Injury Loves Melody.

The hushed female singers of Cowboy Junkies and Mazzy Star, swoop down on Jenifer Jackson‘s graceful Birds.

The more sedate cuts on Moby‘s Play, float away with a loungy tune by the bald DJ, plus other understated electronica on the Cafe Del Mar Volume Seven compilation.
