While many of the artists on this collection may be familiar to indie-rock fans, the 12-track disc, sponsored by Seventeen magazine, exposes them to a wider and previously untapped audience. Highlights include "The One," a revved-up tune by the Like, and Regina Spektor's emotive "Ode to Divorce." Though most acts here feature female performers, THE BEST NEW MUSIC (HEAR IT FIRST) does make room for a few male-fronted bands, most notably Citizen Cope (the laid-back "Sideways") and Iron & Wine (the heartfelt "Naked as We Came").
