NEED TO DOWNLOAD: Your New Year Playlist


MC music guy Scott Frampton kicks off the new year with a playlist to jump-start those gray January mornings.

"Little Lovin'," LISSIE. Her urgent drawl on this Appalachia-tinged ballad builds to a hand-clapping finale befitting a backwoods tent revival.

"The Un-American," MATT MORRIS. Signed to fellow Mouseketeer alum Justin Timberlake's label, Morris has stunning pipes that soar in this "Bohemian Rhapsody"-like political satire, punctuated with mincing strings and barking guitars.

"The Whip," LOCKSLEY. College-rock guitar pop so gleefully infectious, the urge to shout along with the repetitive-but-catchy chorus can't be ignored.

"Outta Here," ESMÉE DENTERS. Her voice may be as thin as a Necco wafer, but there's no denying that this Dutch diva's Top 40 dance track packs a hard-core sugar rush.

"Cousins," VAMPIRE WEEKEND. A punky guitar drives the chorus of this delightfully spastic prep-school Afropop. Perfect for a cathartic midwinter's pogo around the bedroom.

"Had It All," KATHARINE MCPHEE. R&B vocals salt this country-lite confection with a dash of pretty-girl blues — finally, the American Ido also-ran scores a big winner.
