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.
Not sure why they’d film a surf rock video at nighttime. Kind of boring.
The Drums start with a simple guitar surf-lick and some whistling to suck you in, and never let you go. The vocals also complement the music well. This is off their EP, Summertime! as well as their debut self-titled album, The Drums.
This American band have released two albums, and two EPs, chock full of tunes to surf to. If you’re looking for variety, don’t bother, as this band’s specialty is surf rock served on a hot plate.
Graffiti6 bust out the acoustic instruments, but I wish they’d have better recording equipment. This is off their first and only album, Colours.
With just the one album, and one EP under their belts, this English band will only get better. They have won numerous awards in the UK, and done the American late-night talk show circuit. Can’t wait for their next album.
Bad Books play this sad acoustic ditty. The melody is slow and sad, and the lyrics are emotionally charged. This is off their first album, the self titled, Bad Books.
This band is composed of Kevin Devine and members of Manchester Orchestra. They’ve only released 2 albums so far with the latest II just coming out this year. This collaboration essential sounds just like the mellower side to Manchester Orchestra, and it’s very hard to tell the two apart, but I’m not really complaining, as I love both versions.
I don’t quite understand the video, but it looks pretty in high-def.
If you’re looking for a song to rock out to, search no further. Middle Class Rut offer up this dynamic tune. This song is a mellower sample of what they’ve put out so far. It’s off their first and only album, No Name No Color.
This California duo has only released one album, but 6 EPs. Their alternating vocals and extremely hard edge give them an almost punk feel. If you want to disturb your neighbours late at night, blast these guys through your speakers.
From dull, boring, clichéd videos, to fan made videos, to no videos at all. I now present to you, the greatest video ever made.
Grinderman lay down a thick slab of grungy rock music. The sound effects are a bit distracting in the video, but this is one kick-ass song. It’s off of their 2nd album aptly titled, Grinderman 2.
Fronted by Nick Cave, this British band is made up of former members of Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds. They’ve only released 2 albums so far, and both have a much harder sound to their former band. I can just imagine all of their music appearing on the soundtrack of Jason Statham‘s next action movie.
