    Ooh La La, Grace Potter - Country's biggest summer tour an alt-pop blond bombshell.

    Best in Show - Sorting out the 2012 HPMA Best CD/LP/EP nominees is easy.

    The Coathangers, Jaill

    If you tried to call the Coathangers a girl group they'd probably mess you up, but there is a hint of that beehive-hairdo '60s Phil Spector sweetness to go with all their garage-rock fuzz. The Atlanta quartet's 2011 LP Of Larceny & Lace, with spiky p...
