The Evens – King of Kings

Ever heard of Ian MacKaye? Fugazi? Minor Threat? If you have, then you already know how awesome The Evens must be. Consisting of Ian MacKaye and Amy Farina (formerly of The Warmers), The Evens have been making music since 2001 during the on-again-off-again period of Fugazi’s career. A minimalist, indie rock duo, The Washington Post was bold enough to call them “what happens to post-hardcore when it becomes post-post-hardcore.” If you want to know what that might mean, check out The Evens’ song “King of KIngs” off their 2011 album The Odds below.

Generationals – When They Fight, They Fight

New Orleans indie rock duo Generationals perfectly mix elements of 60′s flower power with the indie rock of the early 2000′s. The band gained a decent amount of notoreity after being featured in two commercials including one for Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups and one for Bloomingdale’s. You can hear a track of theirs as the opening song for the 2010 film Going The Distance as well. With two albums and an EP under their belt, Generationals show no sign of stopping their onslaught of happy, guitar driven indie rock. Check out the song “When They Fight, They Fight” off their 2009 debut album Con Law below. Read More…
