Poison Lips by Vitalic


A very odd video of a Japanese girl wandering Tokyo and smearing her lipstick.

Vitalic gets everyone on the dance floor with this feet-moving song. This is from his second studio album, Flashmob.

This French electronic artist has released many singles and EPs with his latest album in 2012. Most of his music drowns in electronic mediocrity, with few songs, like the one below, that manages to float above the rest.


Night Is On Fire by Me My Head


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.

Girls Like You by The Naked and Famous


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.

When I’m Small by Phantogram


Boring black and white and occasionally colour arty video. Blah!

Phantogram seem to merge eletronica and shoegaze music with this ditty. The prominent bass line, and slow sad vocals make it the perfect stripper song. This is off their only album, Eyelid Movies.

This New York duo have released 1 album and 3 EPs. Most of their music can be categorized as slow danceable electronic. If you like the soundtrack to the movie Drive , you’ll like this band.

23 by Blonde Redhead


A crappy video for a for a great movie soundtrack song.

Blonde Redhead entrance us with this tune off of their 7th studio album, 23. Although the lyrics are horrid, the music and vocals evoke a great atmosphere.

This “American” trio (2 members from Italy via Canada & 1 from Japan) have released 8 albums, and many EPS. This song is pretty much a slice of their style, so if you like it, investigate them.

Blueberry Tree Part I by Husky Rescue


Trippy video to match the song.

Husky Rescue emote one of their mellower songs, a wonderful drug-trip soundtrack. And it’s only part one. This is from their second album, Ghost Is Not Real.

This Finnish trip-hop band have released 4 albums with their latest in 2010. I highly recommend you give any of their songs a listen on a lazy rainy Sunday afternoon.

Stray Dog And The Chocolate Shake by Grandaddy


No video for this song, unless you consider a black screen a video

Grandaddy bring you some awesome nerd rock. This is from the album Sumday, released in 2002. One cannot help but like this song based on the opening lyrics. “the supervisor guy turns off the factory lights,so the robots have to work in the dark.

This American indie rock band have released countless albums and EPs. Grandaddy is no more and have no official website, but you can follow former member Jason Lytle on his own site.

23 Lies by Death In Vegas


No video for this song. Some fan inserted pictures of Hope Sandoval, even though she’s not the singer.

Death in Vegas perform a shoe-gazer with unknown singer on vocals, Susan Dillane. This is a nice trippy tune to listen to while watching chilling under the shade of a tree.

They’ve released 4 studio albums so far, but haven’t put together anything new since 2004. Not sure of the status of this UK band. Probably on hiatus.

Hey Boy by Teddybears


It seems like the band had access to a tickle trunk and ad libbed this video. It’s fun and goofy, just like the song.

The Teddybears, straight outta Sweden, mix up a wicked bass-beat, with a simple melody, and easy to sing chorus. I defy anyone not to like this song. And if you don’t like it, you’ll be the first against the wall when the dance-revolution comes.

This band is widely varied in it’s musical style. They started out as a hardcore rock band, and abruptly switched gears in 2000 with their album, Rock ‘n’ Roll Highschool. With a mix of rock, dance, and electronic styles, each song seems like it comes from a different band.

They collaborated with artists, Robyn, Neneh Cherry, and even Iggy Pop. One of band members is also the lead guitarist for the Caesars.

They’ve released a new album, Devil’s Music earlier this year, and one can’t help but think they’d be so much bigger if they were an American band.
