Girls Like You by The Naked and Famous

Standard

In interesting video where we slowly zoom into the band in an apartment complex.

The Naked and Famous take us on a journey with this killer song, easing in slowly, and ending up somewhere else. This is off their debut album, Passive Me, Aggressive You.

This Kiwi band have only released two album thus far, both full of great Synthpop sounds. Their music has appeared in numerous TV shows, including an episode in the 13th season of Canada’s own Degrassi. They’re currently on tour coming to a city near you.

The Kids Are Sick Again by Maximo Park

Standard

A stylized band video.

I’ll always have a place in my heart for Scottish accents, and Maximo Park does not disappoint. A driving bass-line is the, er… base of this ditty. This is off their album, Quicken The Heart.

This band from the across the sea have released 4 albums with their latest in 2012. They’ve got a great indie rock sound, with a bit of a Franz Ferdinand vibe, and it’s no wonder since Franz Ferdinand was formed in Glasgow, Scotland.

Pulp Song by stellastarr*

Standard

Fan made video with stills of the band.

stellastarr* mimic Pulp with this aptly titled song . You can easily slip this into a Pulp medley, and not many people would notice that it’s not them. This is off their debut self-titled album.

This New York band have released 3 ablums and 1 EP. Even though they never quite lose that Pulp sound, they are a slightly meaner version of the group, and that’s why they’re my new favourite sound.

This Is Our Emergency by Pretty Girls Make Graves

Standard

It seems that certain record companies are making it harder and harder to embed videos. And unfortunately this band’s label is one of them. You’ll have to click on the link to take you to another site to watch the video. Video is kind of lame, but the song does kick some ass.

Defunk band Pretty Girls Make Graves deliver a hard-driving rhythm in this fun tune about being frustrated. This is off their 2nd studio album, The New Romance.

This post-punk band from Seattle released 3 studio albums, and a few singles and EPs. Tis a pity they are no more.

The Price of Love by White Lies

Standard

Live video.

This song by White Lies has a nice late 80’s post punk feel to it. It’s from their only album so far, To Lose My Life…

With their debut album, this alt UK band became popular in Europe but haven’t really made the playlists of radio stations in North America.  Their follow up, Ritual is scheduled to be released early in the new year. Hopefully they’ll do something about their horrible website before that happens.
