the year 2012 marks the return of two four piece bands with dynamic female lead singers who have been on a musical vacation for several years: garbage and no doubt. and there's no doubt: gwen stefani and the boys can still rock your socks.
the apparent heir to queen, underappreciated british trio muse also released a heavy new single in 2012; but mostly i'm playing new songs by indie artists this week. you'll be introduced to an incredibly powerful track by australian band art vs. science called "foreward/new world order," edward sharpe & the magnetic zero's "one love to another," and regina spektor's brilliant "don't leave me/ne me quitte pas."
