Eclectic sound-collage dude Jason Forrest employs twangy singer Laura Cantrell on ”Nightclothes and Headphones,” a brisk electro-folk-pop amalgam from his new album, Shamelessly Exciting. Sonig.com/ew.html

The Hold Steady make music steeped in the classic-rocking, Springsteenian tradition. Recorded exclusively for the Net, ”Modesto Is Not That Sweet” finds the band at their most heartbreaking. Emusic.com/ew.html

Jim Croce’s 1972 hit ”Operator (That’s Not the Way It Feels)” gets Tori Amos-ized on this live, piano-driven version. She teases out the song’s caught-in-the-switchboard sentiment in wrenching fashion. Music.yahoo.com

Featuring both high-pitched, sunny-day vocals and brain-curdling howls, New Jersey’s True Love offer their twisted take on age-old power pop with the addictively bipolar ”Sweet Racket.” Notlame.com
