Meet the Meg and Jack White of Pop/Dance/Punk. The Brooklyn duo known as Matt & Kim released their third album Sidewalks ($8) this week. A dance album from start to finish, Sidewalks strings you along with dance beats and familiar rhythms. While there's clearly commercial appeal and obvious influences, the record just feels fresh. This album will fit nicely in your collection next to Phoenix and Passion Pit. Download: "Cameras."
