I think the video is about a boy who really hates Ikea furniture. I pity the fool who burns a Mr. T poster.
Me My Head, turn on the after-burners for this song. This is off their only album, Survival In No Mans Land.
Don’t know much about the band, other than they’re from the UK. According to iTunes, they’ve got the one album, with 3 EPs. Not sure if they’re even still together as their website is down, but their last release was an EP in 2012.
A kick-ass song from Angry Vs The Bear. I don’t know much about the band, other than they’re from the UK, you can dance to any of their songs, and they probably spend as much on their instruments as they do on hair gel. Here’s hoping they sign a record deal sometime soon.
The Faint drive this song home with determination. It’s got a nice little Placebo feel to it. This is from their 7th album, Wet From Birth.
I profess to not knowing much about this band. They are listed on Wikipedia as Indie rock, Post-punk revival, Dance punk, and New Wave and I could see bits and pieces of the the genres in this particular song. I will definitely be doing some research into more of their music.
James Murphy dons the Bowie make-up but keeps the suit and tie for this video. Unfortunately for him he was unprepared for the weather.
LCD Soundsystem weave a nice moderately paced dance tune. This is off their album, Sound of Silver.
This band has released 3 albums, and many singles. They’ve been nominated in 2005 for Best Electronic / Dance Album for their self-titled debut album. Their last album, This Is Happening was released earlier this year.
And if that’s not enough for you, here is a harder edged version by Franz Ferdinand with a bizarre video.
Not the official video for this song, as one doesn’t exist. Instead, a fan just synched the music with an interesting animated movie.
I was on the fence as whether to include anything from this band, but since they’ve never quite made it big here, I decided to post this song. Bloc Party perform this drum and bass driven song with zeal. It’s from their debut album, Silent Alarm.
This UK quartet have released 3 studio albums, 2 EPs, and 2 remix albums with their latest in 2009. They are currently on hiatus, but will hopefully get back together soon for number 4. Finger’s crossed.
