If you're still playing that LMFAO party rockin' song today, a little update may be healthy for the sake of your ears. Here are our picks:

1) Ben GibbardFormer Lives

Sounds like: Death Cab for Cutie teamed up with Wilco…and let the latter have their way.

Wait, what?: In indie rock, Death Cab for Cutie frontman Ben Gibbard is revered as a sad-faced king. But as a solo artist, he travels into Americana territory and comes back bearing jangly, melodic, and all-around pleasant gifts. “Bigger Than Love” and “A Hard One to Know” are instantly accessible, and while “Lily” threatens to go emo on you—starting off as a dead ringer for “I Will Follow You Into the Dark”—Gibbard stays within grinning bounds for a change.

Best for: Those lazy Sundays when you want a soundtrack to match your “steady lang” stance.
