Brooklyn's The Ladybug Transistor brings something to music that is much needed; summery pretty harmonies backed with nice instrumentation. Their new album, Can't Wait Another Day, comes out June 6 via Merge Records and features contributions from Aislers Set, Architecture in Helsinki, Jens Lekman, Roy Nathanson, Kevin Marker, Heather McIntosh and The Clientele.
