"Cascade" by Deluka — Ellie Innocenti, lead singer for Brit-pop band Deluka, delivers some of the strongest female vocals since Blondie-era Debbie Harry in the group's blazing single “Cascade.” The track features rapid-fire futuristic arpeggios over a steady sound that reminds 2010 what it means to be rock 'n' roll. Deluka will perform at San Francisco's Folsom Street Festival September 26.
As Day Follows Night by Sarah Blasko — Blasko’s breathy voice infuses every track on her new album, As Day Follows Night, with a constant hushed fervency. Calmer songs such as “All I Want” lay down elegant lyrics, while bluesy tracks like “No Turning Back” power forward with a beat that will leave you yearning for a bonus disc.
