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.

It’s hard to describe the sound of Chicago’s Bound Stems. They give an interesting perspective on noise/indie/pop rock that can only be compared to the likes of Modest Mouse or Franz Ferdinand. Though they broke up in 2008, there are four EPs and two albums out there that are definitely worth checking out. New bands formed from the ashes of Bound Stems include Like Pioneers and Sleepy Kitty. If you’re as confused as I am by this description, check out their song “Passing Bell” off their 2008 album The Family Afloat below. Read More…
