For those of us not so familiar with these bands, Pitchfork has some succinct descriptions for each of them:

Atlanta psych-rock powerhouses Deerhunter, Portland-based experimental pop trio Menomena, dance-rock juggernaut Klaxons, sleek Brits Fujiya & Miyagi, Sub Poppers Oxford Collapse, neo-slowcore duo Beach House, fantastically insane one-man-band Dan Deacon, and boundary-breaking jazz ensemble Craig Taborn’s Junk Magic.
