The Radio Cure provides you a smattering of great tracks (all at once!) to cure you of your radio blues. Burn 'em on a mix CD, and there you have it.

Peter Wolf Crier - Settling It Off
A down tempo footstomper (is that an oxymoron?), "Settling It Off" shows off the band's new found confidence in its own restraint. Garden of Arms comes out September 6th.

Male Bonding - Tame the Sun
Rock, dude. "Tame the Sun" will get your noise-pop juices flowing. The London band's sophomore effort, Endless Now, is out now on Sub Pop.
Male Bonding - Tame the Sun

Luke Temple (of Here We Go Magic) - How Could I Lie
A wobbly, countrified romp, "How Could I Lie" previews what'll likely be a perfect autumnal album. Don't Act Like You Don't Care comes out on September 6th on Western Vinyl.
Luke Temple - How Could I Lie

Rachael Yamagata - Starlight [download]
This track off the upcoming Chesapeake continues Yamagata's penchant for rock with a dark side. "Starlight" is inherently mysterious and spooky.

The Bandana Splits - Back to School
An Andrews Sisters for the modern age, The Bandana Splits harmonize cutesy on "Back to School," a track that could be the sequel of the The White Stripes' "We're Going To Be Friends." And, this is the best song to use the word "corduroy" since The Decemberists' "Angel, Won't You Call?"

Matthew Ryan - Hey Kid
"I hope you can still picture a world without tears, we need you here," Matthew Ryan sings on "Hey Kid," a four-minute rocker about the battle of modern life. Ryan's new album, I Recall Standing as Though Nothing Could Fall, is available now.
Matthew Ryan - Hey Kid

Ume - Captive
The stars of LouFest 2011 can sure rock. Lauren Larson leads the Austin-based trio on "Captive," a scorching song off their latest album, Phantoms.
Ume - Captive

James Vincent McMorrow - Higher Love (Steve Winwood) [download]
Yeah, that's right. Our favorite (okay, one of our favorite) Irish singer-songwriters went and did the damn thing with a Steve Winwood cover. Look out.

Vetiver - Wonder Why
The Errant Charm, Vetiver's fifth full-length album, features the track "Wonder Why," a song perfect for leisurely driving, even with a specific destination in mind. After all, it's not hurried, but it's not without direction.
