3. Imperial Teen—Feel the Sound
Imperial Teen's first new album in five years would provide the perfect soundtrack to a laid-back dinner party turned ever so slightly less laid-back dance party. That may sound like faint praise, but it's not. It's a pristine collection of songs that display their hooks proudly, without any of the various filters currently being used to make hooks sound less hooky for the benefit of people who're afraid to admit they like hooks.
