MARY EP­WORTH

Black Doe is the rea­son for the wows from the pews about Mary Ep­worth’s forth­com­ing de­but al­bum. Pow­ered by a dev­il­ish banjo riff, this tune about en­coun­ter­ing a deer in the woods is a pow­er­ful slab of new-school psych-folk with some un­usual brassy hooks in the wash. Con­sider us smit­ten. Maryep­worth.com

NO

The sounds and songs (es­pe­cially Stay With Me) of this hard-to-google five-piece band from Echo Park, Los An­ge­les, are a must-hear for fans of such in­die heavy­weights as The Na­tional and The Walk­men. If you dig strong bari­tone voices and beau­ti­ful melodies, you’ll find your­self fall­ing for NO. No­mu­sic­forme.com

Gang Colours

Southamp­ton pro­ducer Will Ozanne, who re­cently hooked up with the Brownswood la­bel, makes elec­tronic tunes which zing with day­dreamer beats, dark shad­ows and soft, hazy melodies. We look for­ward to ex­plor­ing The Key­chain Col­lec­tion, his de­but al­bum of head­phone sym­phonies, due out later this month. Face­book.com/gang­colours
