Show me a beautiful Instagram account and I'll show you a happy girl. Mari (rhymes with starry) Andrew, a writer and illustrator based in New York City, has oodles of sweet illustrations sure to tug at your heartstrings and leave you feeling like somebody else in this mad world finally understands you. She pours her emotions, fears, worries and joys into her gently funny sketches and will keep you scrolling down. She has a new book out, too: "Am I There Yet?: The Loop-de-loop, Zigzagging Journey to Adulthood"; instagram.com/bymariandrew. - Jennifer Mulson

Courtney Barnett's album last year with Kurt Vile, "Lotta Sea Lice," was as fun as the title suggested, with the indie darlings teaming up for songs such as "Over Everything," best listened to on a sunny day with the windows down. Now Barnett is back to business with her latest solo record, "Tell Me How You Really Feel." And yes, that title gives you an idea of what to expect from the Australian singer-songwriter. Barnett is sounding like she did on that unforgettable tune "Pedestrian at Best," in which she belts, "Put me on a pedestal and I'll only disappoint you." The punk rock is back, as are themes dealing with tough emotions and dark sides of human nature. - Seth Boster
