Mansions – City Don’t Care

Louisville, Kentucky’s Mansions seemingly can do no wrong, but being one of the hardest working bands in the industry doesn’t hurt. Releasing at least one album every year since its inception in 2007, Mansions has also been able to maintain an impressive tour schedule. Touring in support of bands such as Hellogoodbye, A Great Big Pile of Leaves, Look Mexico, The Honorary Title, and many more, they even got to open up for Taking Back Sunday during their Tell All Your Friends 10th Anniversary Tour. Their brand of lo-fi, fuzzy rock does an excellent job of being simple while putting forth a large sound. Check out the music video for their song “City Don’t Care” off their 2011 release Dig Up the Dead below.

Efterklang – I Was Playing Drums

Copenhagen down-tempo indie rock band Efterklang takes their name from the Danish word meaning”reverberation” or “remembrance;” a word that is all too fitting for the band. Bass-heavy, piano-driven tunes provide the perfect platform for deep contemplation about life, love, or what you’re going to eat for dinner. Though they’re a three member band, eight members are added for their live show, creating a spectacular display of music and movement that is sure to stick with anyone who catches a glimpse. Check out the music video for “I Was Playing Drums” off of their 2009 release Magic Chairs below. Read More…

As Tall As Lions – Is This Tomorrow?

Long Island’s As Tall As Lions never had a huge following; that is, until they broke up.

From the impressiveness of their vocal range to the genius of song structure, As Tall As Lions was easily one of the most underrated indie rock bands out there. Check out their track “Is This Tomorrow?” off of their final release You Can’t Take It With You below. Read More…
