>TRUE LOVE True Love (cropduster.com) Quick, before they're signed! This trio of Hoboken, N.J., power-pop cats has joined a Web collective of hip indie bands (www.crop duster.com) to market this CD of short, sharp, neo-new-wave gems.

THE BEST OF P.M. DAWN P.M. Dawn (Gee Street/V2) Lovely melodies and high, soaring harmonies are not attributes always associated with hip-hop music. But these two New Jersey rappers wrap their rhymes in just such rare, rich textures.

OUTBOUND Béla Fleck & the Fleck-tones (Columbia) Call it jazzgrass. Banjo plucker extraordinaire Fleck leads her band through a rousing, mostly instrumental song cycle with vocal interludes provided by Shawn Colvin and Jon Anderson.
