New Orleans is known the world over as the wellspring of jazz, blues, and swamp rock, but recently it has also managed to export a fine young indie rock band. The duo Generationals calls the Big Easy home, but, in Creedence Clearwater Revival terms, their music's vibe is more "Down on the Corner" than "Born on the Bayou." The band's 2011 release Actor-Caster is full of catchy choruses, jangly riffs, and clever little pop songs that sound like the pair should hail instead from the sunny shores of California, or perhaps one of the hipper stretches of Brooklyn. Note: Unlike John Fogerty—born in Berkeley, not on the Bayou—these dudes really are from Louisiana. With Races. KEEGAN HAMILTON
