Album: Devotion Implosion (Cordless)
In stores: Now
Why we care: In a fuzzy, buzzy, under-the-radar way, the Jesus and Mary Chain were one of the most influential bands to spring from the ’80s. The Scottish noise-rockers excelled at feedback-slathered ’60s jangle — think the Ronettes backed by a psychedelic trio. Hot new bands the Raveonettes, Glasvegas and now L.A. trio Gliss all are disciples.
Why we like it: Gliss — Martin Klingman, David Reiss and femme fatale Victoria Cecilia — also sound inspired by coked-kids ’80s flick Less Than Zero, the gumshoe noir of Raymond Chandler and the fishnet punk-pop of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. Raymond Chandler meets Andrew McCarthy meets Karen O? I’m in love.
Reminds us of: Farewell, My Lusty
