10. LP: Light Up Your Lantern by Lynx
By the time she released her first LP, Bay Area-by-way-of-Colorado artist Lynx was already an old friend and longtime collaborator of Beats Antique's Tommy Cappel, Matisyahu, Bassnectar, and John Popper. So perhaps it's no surprise that the haunting melodies on her 10-track debut LP embrace echoes of folk, Celtic-sounding violins, and a surprisingly seamless integration of electronica. With the commercial success of electro-pop bands like Imagine Dragons and OneRepublic, I'm hoping Lynx has chosen exactly the right moment to burst onto the scene with Light Up Your Lantern. Imagine if Mumford and Sons had a love-child with Florence Welch of Florence + The Machine, and that love-child was every bit as hot and talented as you'd expect, and you've got Lynx. Watch the stunning music video for the album's title track below, and get the LP on October 22 at Lynx's website. —Sunnivie Brydum
