Delorean, Teengirl Fantasy, Big Spider's Back

Why: In the way that Burial's dubstep is haunted by ghosts of London rave, Spanish indie-pop band Delorean's new album, Subiza, is animated by echoes of early-'90s house. Though the four-piece operates with the standard bass, drums, guitar, and keys, their songs are spilling over with diva vocals sampled and manipulated, chunky drum loops, and syncopated piano chords. The band's accent is impossible to place (they're Basque, not Balearic), recalling Phoenix's Euro cool and giddy repetitions, Animal Collective's endearingly amateurish harmonizing, and the borrowed beach vibes of Swedish disco-pop acts Studio and jj.
