You Rascal You by Hanni El Khatib

Standard

818SBlrjqcL._SL1500_[1]Hanni El Khatib rocks this tune with a hard electric guitar sound. This is off his debut album, Will the Guns Come Out.

Most of his music has a nice edge to it. He’s released 3 albums thus far with his latest, Moonlight, early this year. His music has been used in commercials and various TV shows from Californication to Luther to Gotham.

And to accompany the song, is this boring video about driving around at night and the lights of the city. All style, no substance.

Where the Kids Are by Blondfire

Standard

cover170x170[1]

Weird video about hunting down a panda.

This song first appeared on Blondfire‘s EP, Where the Kids Are, and is also included on their latest album, Young Heart. 

Blondfire are an LA band whose members consist of a brother-and-sister duo. They’ve only 2 full albums, but they’re full of interesting indie pop songs.

The song starts at the 24 second mark, if you want to fast-forward past the opening…

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.

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.

Where The Kids Are by Blondfire

Standard

This lame psychedelic video is nothing special, unless you like seeing people bathe in food.

Blondfire fill the dance floor with this ditty. This is off their third EP, Where The Kids Are.

This LA brother and sister duo have released a few EPS and 2 albums, the most recent, Young Heart in 2014. They have an indie pop vibe, and many of their songs are varied from each other. Which means you won’t get bored of them. If you don’t like one song, you’ll like another or, you’ll like most of them.

Poison Lips by Vitalic

Standard

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.

Fire Ant by Alex Winston

Standard

Odd animated video.

Cute little child-like ditty from Alex Winston. This is off the her EP, Velvet Elvis.

This American indie pop singer has released only one album, and a few EPs. She sounds like a cross between Amy Winehouse and Regina Spektor.  Her music is hard to find, but definitely worth listening to. Here’s hoping she makes the leap to mainstream radio without compromising on her style.

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.

Lost in the Light by Bahamas

Standard

A simple artistically shot stage video. Not really original, but at least it’s pretty.

Bahamas plays the perfect ditty for your “songs to make out with” playlist. This is off his second album, Barchords. A lovely song for a long Valentine’s Day weekend

This Toronto artist does just fine with his guitar and vocals. Most of his music is simple and mellow with a little hint of a country vibe. And if you’d like to hear a great live session from this guy, I recommend clicking on this link… www.youtube.com/watch?v=HsHetqB6f14

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.
