I Was A Cub Scout – Echoes

British two-piece I Was A Cub Scout were only around for two years and only made one album, but left with us some awesome music. Equal parts post rock and synth pop, the band make loveable tunes that may not get stuck in your head, but will easily make you swoon. Check out the track “Echoes” off their only album I Want You To Know That There Is Always Hope below. Read More…

The Heavy – What Makes A Good Man?

British rock outfit The Heavy provide a fresh take on alternative rock that really is a sound for sore ears. Mixing in elements of soul, folk, and even big band or swing music, their music spans the emotional spectrum. From ire to compassion and depression to optimism, The Heavy have a song for you. Check out the video for the song “What Makes A Good Man?” off their 2012 album The Glorious Dead below. Read More…

Flobots – Combat

Flobots can ride their bikes with no handlebars. We all know that. What many of us don’t know, however, is how great the group is beyond that song. Though perhaps a bit too politically charged for the casual listener, the lyrics are full of clever word play and insightful, hopeful messages (even an Arrested Development reference or two if you’re into that kind of thing). The instrumentation is full of creative rhythms, beautiful violin melodies, and some interesting time stylings. Despite the relative flop of their latest album, their first album Fight With Tools remains a staple of the rap rock genre. Check out the song “Combat” below. Read More…

Surfer Blood – I’m Not Ready

Straight out of West Palm Beach, Florida, Surfer Blood makes the kind of surf rock that’s not really considered surf rock. The upbeat, yet chilled out rock music that practically forces you to bob your head along has a way of getting inside your head and rocking you for the following few days. There really isn’t much out there quite like these guys, meaning their about to become one of your new favorite bands. Plus they’ve got a new album coming out next month, so that’s pretty cool. Check out the song “I’m Not Ready” off their latest EP Tarot Classics below. Read More…

The Basement – 5/30/13

Pulp Culture – Cognitive Dissonance

The White Stripes – Ball and a Biscuit

The Rival – Chisel

Mike Vial – Reach Back Read More…

Yeah Yeah Yeahs – Under the Earth

New York City’s Yeah Yeah Yeahs are back with their fourth full-length effort Mosquito. The highly anticipated album comes at a bit of a shock to a die-hard fan, as it acts as a compromise between the original, oddity-laden sound with the dance-pop style of It’s Blitz!, but without any of the energy. A generally slower album, Mosquito introduces many production elements into the mix, something that may not be new for the band, but has never been utilized like this. Check out their song “Under the Earth” off their album Mosquito out below. Read More…

Moving Mountains – Cover the Roots, Lower the Stems

New York’s Moving Mountains have been described as one of the most emotion-provoking bands in the general rock scene right now. With elements of post-rock, pop-punk, indie rock, and post-hardcore, the band have been able to take “mainstream” rock to some pretty cool places. Their music has often been compared to that of The Appleseed Cast or Vheissu-era Thrice. Check out the song “Cover the Roots, Lower the Stems” off their debut album Pneuma below. Read More…

Pepper Rabbit – Lake House

Los Angeles’ Pepper Rabbit was a band that unfortunately never garnered much fame. This struggle culminated with the break-up of the two-piece in early 2012. Despite the break-up, their music has been getting increasingly popular and still deserves attention. The laid-back, psych-folk the band puts forth is enough to make any hippie weak at the knees. With a slow, yet driving and melancholy, yet hopeful sound, Pepper Rabbit is great whether your feeling depressed or optimistic. Check out the track “Lake House” off their album Red Velvet Snowball below. Read More…

Cocorosie – Gravediggress

Cocorosie is a tale of two sisters, separated and reunited by the power of music. Their definition of music may, however, be a little looser than most people’s. The sisters started off playing as a two-piece, using children’s toys, noisemakers, and other various objects to set a harsh, obtrusive percussion style complemented with beautifully crafted guitar, harp, and electronic melodies. Though they have matured their sound after four album (sorta), they still maintain their eccentric style, odd song structures, and haunting(ly beautiful) vocals. Check out the song “Werewolf” off their upcoming album out May 27th Tales of a Grass Widow below. Read More…
