Dan Snaith has explored a host of indie pop and rock forms under the name Caribou, and his projects are unified by his spacey, melodic sensibility. On this fall’s “Our Love,” he was inspired by electronic dance music, but it’s more about beautifully psychedelic sounds for your head than beats for the dance floor.

James Andrews and the Crescent City All-Stars
Trumpeter James Andrews is Trombone Shorty’s older brother and Jessie “Ooh Poo Pah Doo” Hill’s grandson. His roots are in classic New Orleans R&B, jazz, and second line music, but his shows feel like a Treme party with a community’s worth of musicians onstage at times.

Sabotage: A NOLA Tribute to the Beastie Boys
While The Meters and ’70s jazz-funk still holds a lot of sway in New Orleans, another generation grew up with more punky notions of funk. Members of Flow Tribe, Jealous Monk, Gravity A and more will pay tribute to the credible grooves of rap group The Beastie Boys—who themselves were influenced by The Meters and the ‘70s jazz-funk giants.
