Genre: Rock

Why We're Excited: The Shacks first broke through with an appearance in an iPhone commercial, and now the band's got its own album full of airy, sweet-natured throwback pop. In "Follow Me," Shannon Wise's cotton-candy voice floats over one of the most agreeable grooves you'll hear this year; by the time it's over, you'll swear you feel sand between your toes.
