If you've never been able to get down with the heavy, conceptual art-rock of And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead, give Lost Songs
, the Austin group's 2012 album, a spin. "Awestruck," in particular, shines: It's like Explosions in the Sky tried writing a streamlined, melodic rock song. Opener UME (ooo-may), a two-thirds-female trio also from the Texas capital, fuses hooky pop rock with heavy shoegaze.
