Until We Get There by Lucius


No video for this song, so below is the Soundcloud link.

Lucius give us a perfect song to add to our Sunday-afternoon-drive- to-the-park-for-a-picnic playlist.. This is off their only album, Wildewoman

Hailing from NY this band is relatively new to the music scene releasing their first of two EPs in 2012. This particular song has more of a dream-pop vibe than the rest of their sound. They’ve got a harder edge than presented here.


Pulp Song by stellastarr*


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.

Friend Crush by Friends


A horrid, horrid video for such a nice ditty. Pity.

Friends (not to be confused with the Monica/Chandler Friends) give us a nice danceable electronic indie pop tune. I can picture this song playing in the background during a club scene on CSI SVU. This is off their debut album, Manifest!

This American band from Broklyn has only just released the one album earlier this year. Even though each song on the album is pretty varied, they always mange to stay in their genre. Perfect for an indie movie soundtrack.

Eyes On Fire by Blue Foundation


Some arty video about a Russian dancer. When will these indie bands learn to make better videos?

Blue Foundation is a NY City band. This song is a bit of a departure from their normal sound, which is a shame, since this is a great song. It’s off their fourth album, Life of a Ghost.

They’ve released 5 albums and 1 EP. Most of their music is generic almost trip-hop music, not really making them stand out. This particular song was used in the Twilight film.

Inside of Love by Nada Surf


Not quite sure what the video means. I believe it’s just a montage of sad and lonely people singing along with the lyrics. Merry Christmas everyone.

Nada Surf play a sad song about love, or more accurately the lack thereof. This is off their 3rd album, Let Go.

This NYC band have been around since 1996, and have released 6 albums and 2 EP, their most current being earlier this year consisting of covers. They remake Depeche Mode, Kate Bush, and the Moody Blues to name a few. They’re mostly know for the song, aptly titled, Popular, which is from their first album.
