These blog-buzzy Brooklynites debuted in 2003 with the aptly titled Tunes Nextdoor to Songs EP, but these days, Bear in Heaven are full-time residents of Ditty Town: Last year’s Beast Rest Forth Mouth is a hook-packed psych-pop delight, with all kinds of noodly electronic textures decorating frontman Jon Philpot’s dreamy melodies; in especially catchy highlights such as “Lovesick Teenagers” and “You Do You,” they sound like Grizzly Bear covering the Notwist.

With Wisconsin goth-punk revivalist Zola Jesus
