Best Girl Group 

Hot Cha Cha

Calling Hot Cha Cha a girl group is like calling Mushroomhead a boy band, but the arty, all-woman indie-rock quartet deserves every single accolade it's gotten. After two years together, the group is poised for a breakout. Their full-length debut, The World's Hardest Working Telescope & the Violent Birth of Stars, captures their raw-nerve hybrid of garage-pop, melodic punk and jarring alt-rock. Bouncy frontwoman Jovana Batkovic occasionally sprinkles some French and German lyrics in among the English ones. You can find the band at local rock clubs like Now That's Class, the Beachland and the Grog Shop, which will host Stars' CD-release party on October 16. Be sure to check out the video for the first single, "Bob Has a Better Cow," a slow-mo romp that approximates the band's reverb-drenched ambiance. ( Ferris
