Editors’ Notes L.A. indie-pop band The Marías make music so featherlight there are times when it feels like it’s going to peel off and dissolve into a sweet neon haze. Mixing downtempo club sounds with touches of jazz, psychedelia, and Latin pop, the tracks here aren’t just powerful mood-setters but—like, say, the music of The xx—barometers of how intermingled indie and mainstream pop have become, balancing casual and sophisticated with offhand poise. Think perfect bedhead, in sound. And for as smooth as the music can be, singer María has just enough grit in her voice to keep the sound grounded. Low-key but in high style, here’s the best of The Marías.
