Each week, columnist Trent Burns digs up the best songs you haven’t heard yet. Take a listen.

Alt-J,“Left Hand Free”

(If you like: Tame Impala, MS MR, not knowing what genre you’re listening to)
The boys who brought you “Breezeblocks” step out of their sonic comfort zone on this funky glitch-groove jam off their upcoming album “This is All Yours.”

Dads, “Chewing Ghosts”

(If you like: Brand New, Into It. Over It., the angst of growing up)
Indie-emo duo Dads are growing up, and its capturing every angsty moment of it perfectly: “We could be drunk together/we could be punk together/we could be friends again.”

Coasts, “Come a Little Closer”

(If you like: Walk the Moon, Two Door Cinema Club, British indie-rock)
Tired of Top 40 jams? Don’t want to give up those catchy hooks? No worries, Bristol based indie-rock outfit Coasts blends the best of both worlds in “Come a Little Closer.”

Passion Pit, “Cuddle Fuddle”

(If you like: MGMT, Foster the People, Passion Pit songs that aren’t “Take a Walk”)
Celebrate #tbt with a track from the good old days of indie-tronica. You know, before “Take a Walk.”

Cheers Elephant, “Doin ‘ It, Right”

(If you like: The Strokes, Saint Motel, listening to music while getting ready to go out)
Cheers Elephant delivers sun-drenched, chilled out rock to bridge the gap between weekday Friday and Friday night (which we all know are essentially different days). Pre-game your ears in SoCal style.
