The members of Trashcan Sinatras had not heard Wye Oak’s “Holy Holy” before getting our shrinking list of songs—they had never even heard of the band. That shouldn’t be too big a surprise considering they’re from pretty different eras, though I’d like to think—as a big fan of both bands—that they’ll end up loving each other. When the Scottish Sinatras took a listen to “Holy Holy”—from Wye Oak’s unstoppable 2011 album Civilian—they found it plenty intriguing, and gave it a little patina of Scottish sadness and chill wit. The Trashcans’ latest album is this year’s Wild Pendulum.

Louisiana’s Brass Bed is no stranger to shifting direction. Started as a bedroom recording project, on this year’s In The Yellow Leaf the band has grown into something larger and more ambitious. It’s fitting that the band opted to tackle Van Halen’s “Why Can’t This Be Love,” the first single from the band’s Van Hagar era, which changed direction but showed it could still be a commercial success. Here, Brass Bed inserts some of its own roots-rock folkiness, giving Sammy Hagar a taste of something different.
