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.
An awesome video. By now you can tell, I’m into the weird and different, but these are the images that stay with you. Anyone care to interpret?
Bat For Lashes (aka Natasha Khan) sings this future horror movie title song. This is a bit of a departure from her normal mellow sound. It’s off her debut album, Fur and Gold.
This English singer/songwriter has released 3 albums, and unfortunately I can’t listen to any of them. This is the sole song that gives me any life. Most of her music is sad slightly more uptempo Cat Power. Not my scene at all.
This Scotsman has released 7 albums, and 2 EPs. Most of his music is reggae / triphop, slightly removed. It’s like having eggs that don’t quite taste like egg, but aren’t any better. And for that reason, except for a few of his songs, like this one, I’m just not eating it up.
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.
I’ll always have a place in my heart for Scottish accents, and Maximo Park does not disappoint. A driving bass-line is the, er… base of this ditty. This is off their album, Quicken The Heart.
This band from the across the sea have released 4 albums with their latest in 2012. They’ve got a great indie rock sound, with a bit of a Franz Ferdinand vibe, and it’s no wonder since Franz Ferdinand was formed in Glasgow, Scotland.
Interesting video about a man who discovers a timer on his heart is about to run out. Will he survive?
UNKLE bust out all the rock gear to bring you this ditty, with vocals by singer Ian Astbury of The Cult fame. This is off their third album, War Stories.
This UK trip-rock band has an eclectic sound to it. They’ve produced numerous albums and EPs, collaborating with many others artists like Thom Yorke from Radiohead to Richard Ashcroft from The Verve. Many of their songs appear in ads and tv, probably due to their movie-soundtrack like quality.
This song by White Lies has a nice late 80’s post punk feel to it. It’s from their only album so far, To Lose My Life…
With their debut album, this alt UK band became popular in Europe but haven’t really made the playlists of radio stations in North America. Their follow up, Ritual is scheduled to be released early in the new year. Hopefully they’ll do something about their horrible website before that happens.
The Veils play out a indie rock song that would probably sound great live in some dingy underground London club. This is off their album of the same name.
This UK band have released 3 albums, and I must profess to really liking their sound. I did however discover this song in a trailer for Il Divo, and Italian movie based on the life of a corrupt Italian Prime Minister with Mafia ties.
