Lolla 2013 wish list

In alphabetical order …

Arkells
The Canadians released one of 2012’s most consistent albums, “Michigan Left.”
 
Chance the Rapper
The local MC’s rising fast, and Lolla’s a perfect place to showcase why.
 
The Delta Saints
Badass blues from Nashville, which didn’t stop them from titling a song “Chicago.”
 
Paloma Faith
The pop-soul singer’s huge in Britain. She deserves to be big here.
 
The Knife
The Swedish electronic act returns this year with “Shaking the Habitual.”
 
Laura Marling
The upcoming “Once I Was An Eagle” will likely be her fourth exceptional folk record. Before turning 24.
 
Miguel
The R&B crooner justifiably broke out in 2012 thanks to “Kaleidoscope Dream.”
 
Caitlin Rose
Sweet, twangy pop that’s kinda like Zooey Deschanel—except Rose’s songs don’t threaten to float away.
 
Stepdad
Born in Chicago, based in Michigan, fronted by Ultramark. Electro-pop excellence.
 
Surfer Blood
It’s been a long three years since the Florida group’s “Astro Coast.” “Pythons” arrives in June.

Watch Matt on “You & Me This Morning,” Friday at 6:55 a.m. on WCIU, the U
