Hometown: Los Angeles, California

Genre: Rock

Why We're Excited: Led by long-distance best friends Allegra Weingarten and Etta Friedman, Momma populates its forthcoming album Two of Me with a cast of recurring characters and stories of a kind of purgatory — the stuff of concept albums. Here, the many lyrical Easter eggs only add layers of depth and mystery to crisp, chiming, hooky pop-rock songs that'd be great even if they weren't expounding on the far-ranging consequences of county-fair fisticuffs.
