Jesus Christ – My Best Fiend

Standard

61h7MxEW8+L[1]My Best Fiend play this tune that seems like it could be from a late 90s indie label. This is off their album, In Ghostlike Fading.

Jesus Christ, I can’t find very much about this band. They’re probably named after a 1999 German documentary by Werner Herzog about Klaus Kinski.

Surprise, surprise, there’s also no video for this song.

What You Do To Me by Hannah Georgas

Standard

515GbMiArSL[1]No video for this song.

This Canadian songstress coos us with something fit for a David Lynch soundtrack. This is off her second album, Hannah Georgas.

Hannah Georgas hails from Canada’s rock and roll capital, Newmarket, Ontario. She’s released 3 ablums thus far, as well as nominated for a Juno for her song off the same album, Robotic. Most of her music is low-key not straying to far from the sample below.

Fiction by The xx

Standard

The_xx_-_Coexist[1]Arsty black and white video with no narrative. Why do they even bother?

This slow sultry song is from London based band, The xx. This is off their second album, Coexist.

Their music has been used many times in TV and movies. They have an interesting dream-pop sound which they never stray far from. They’re currently working on their third studio album.

Save The Party For Me – Grouplove

Standard

Spreading_Rumours_Album_Art[1]No video for this song.

Grouplove jam this joyous melody. This is off their last album, Spreading Rumours.

This LA indie band have released one EP and 2 albums, the most recent in 2013. They’ve matured from an uptempo happy-sunshine band to a more melodic one while still keeping some it’s happiness.

Dropping Out of School by Brad Sucks

Standard

No video for this song, so enjoy a still of the album cover.

Most of Brad Sucks‘ music is up-tempo rock with a few exceptions. This is off his second album, Out of It.

Brad Sucks is from Ottawa, Canada, and not since Paul Anka has this city had something to be proud of. He’s released 3 albums so far with most of his music available on his website, along with tracks to allow you mix your own versions of his music.

Lightsabre Cocksucking Blues by McLusky

Standard

Who doesn’t like watching cats synced to music?

Mclusky offer up this energy infused masterpiece with one of the best titled songs I’ve heard in a while. This is off their second album, Mclusky Do Dallas.

I’ve only just discovered this now defunct Welsh band, after hearing a song of their’s on the TV show, One Tree Hill. They’ve four albums, three of which were released before their breakup in 2005, and all of them sated with angst-filled songs. Crank their tunes, and get ready for the original flash-mob known as the mosh pit.

I Always Knew by The Vaccines

Standard

A simple video of a couple flirting on a carnival ride, and nothing really happens.

With an intro that reminds me a little of Elton John‘s Crocodile Rock, The Vaccines quickly go off into a different direction. This is off their second album, Come of Age.

This English band have released just the two albums along with a few EPs. Their sound reminds me a little of Franz Ferdinand meets The Strokes. And they’re at their best when they play with angst.

Night Is On Fire by Me My Head

Standard

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.

They Told Me by Sallie Ford and The Sound Outside

Standard

Interesting video. My take on it, is the man is wrestling with the woman inside him, and she’s winning.

Sallie Ford & The Sound Outside serve up a hotplate of Rockabilly smothered with angst and a side of old fashioned cool. This is off their latest album, Untamed Beast.

This Rockabillyesque band are my current favourite. They’ve released 3 albums thus far, all chock-full of great tunes to blast out your vintage car while cruising down the highway on a hot Sunday afternoon. If you like this tune, hurry out and pick up all 3 of their albums.

Bandages by Hey Rosetta!

Standard

Inventive video that takes place all around St. John’s, Newfoundland.

Hey Rosetta! bang out this interesting ditty. This is off their third album, Seeds.

This Canadian band have been around since 2005, but still have not quite made the jump to mainstream radio. Most of their music is a little too tame for me, with a few exceptions, like this one, but maybe they’re your cup of tea.
