SON, AMBULANCE, AZURE RAY -- From Omaha's Saddle Creek, the label that brought you emotional turmoil of Bright Eyes, Son, Ambulance, provide calm, clean simplicity for fans of Belle and Sebastian-style twee meets '70s singer-songwriters. Athens' Azure Ray, who will release their own EP on Saddle Creek, play melodic, melancholic songs where delicate voices intertwine like the dark, atmospheric warped-tape loops that hug them. Echo Lounge (Ware)

JIMMY THACKERY -- Be prepared to take cover as ex-Nighthawk road veteran Thackery and his combo churn up blistering blues-rock propelled by swampy roots in Chicago and Hendrix. He'll leave you slack-jawed and wondering why he's not considered a major guitar hero, 'cause there's nothing he can't do on that beat-up Strat, including play it with a full beer bottle. Rugged and mesmerizing. Blind Willie's (Horowitz)
