From the Music Editors: View Music Picks 
Norwegian outfit Serena Maneesh take the wall-of-noise sound predecessors like Sonic Youth and The Jesus and Mary Chain bled ears with and slather it something frantic, cutting angular guitar jabs over crunchy, distorted samples in their shadows. Then they turn on a pop dime with main songwriter Emil Nikolaisan handing over vocal duties to his sister, Elvira, coming off ambient and dreamy in her wails, that reveal their chill-wave influences. Openers Wovenhand rally some judgment day folk rock, footstomp and all, led by former 16 Horsepower lead singer David Eugene Edwards. (Gavin Paul)
