The Drums - Let's Go Surfing (The Raveonettes Remix)

Love The Drums and love The Raveonettes. With the Raveonettes it adds a little more edgy feeling. Not sure if I like it better then the original but I do like it alot.

Here is a free download of the song

The Very Best - Warm Heart Of Africa feat. Ezra Koenig (Vampire Weekend)

Here is a pretty cool from The Very Best feat. Ezra from Vampire Weekend. Apparently this was the big song of the World Cup in Africa. They also have a song featuring MIA that is worth checking out.

Beach House - I Do Not Care for The Winter Sun - FREE Download

Happy Holidays “We recorded this a few days ago in our practice space: its a winter/holiday song,” “its a gift to the internet, thank you for the lovely, intense year!”

Iron & Wine - Tree by the River - FREE download

It will cost you an email address to get the free song but well worth it.

Here is the song from Youtube.

The Avett Brothers - If its The Beaches

Gorgeous song.

The Vaccines - Blow It Up

This could possibly be the biggest band to watch in 2011. They are already darlings in the UK with out an official release yet and this is a pretty strong song to start out. I have heard that The Vaccines are the UK Strokes. As a huge Strokes fan I can here the resemblence a little. I also can here Band of Horses while listening to this song as weird as that sounds. Great Great song - I am excited to hear more from these guys.

The Decemberists - Down By The Water - FREE Download

Down By The Water FREE Download

Available either on Decemberists site or on Itunes this week as a free download

Coldplay - Christmas Lights

Merry Christmas a few days late. Thought I should at least post 1 Christmas song this time of year. Over 7 million hits on youtube in 3 weeks .............. yeah Coldplay could possibly be the biggest band in the world now. Oh how I miss the Parachutes days when I could go to their concert at a 1000 person venue and be in the front row for $25. Anyways this is a shinny new nice Christmas tune.

Flying Lotus - And The World Laughs With You (feat. Thom Yorke)

Nice short to the point song - and of course a little Thom Yorke doesn't hurt.

Delorean - Real Love

Another Pretty Great and Wonderful along with Fantastic Song of 2010. The Subiza Album reminds me a little of Sigur Ros, just a straight out chill album worth listening too on those depressing rainy days.

Local Natives - Wide Eyes

The whole Gorilla Manor album is pretty great. Wide Eyes is the first track and it gets you hooked right away. Almost like there is no turning back after the first song.

Glasser - Home


Hooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooommmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee ............... Maybe not for everyone but yet again another indie tune.

Warpaint - Undertow


yet another 2010 track that stands out!

New Rural Alberta Advantage - Coming March 1st

You can listen to the single 'Stamp' now and can even download it for free by giving out your email address. I am a huge fan of this band - Loved loved the Hometowns album and am hoping for the same success with the release of Departing.

Egyptian Hip Hop - Rad Pitt

Another nice shiny new refreshing Tune. Don't think they have anything released yet so you may only be able to hear it on youtube for now. Could be just another one of those "Hey this band is going to be huge" type of deals but this song sounds promising to me.

Foals - Spanish Sahara


This song is an incredible journey from the first listen. Hard to find a better tune in 2010.

These New Puritans - Hologram

yeah yeah yeah the video is a little strange and you may not want your kids to watch it but the music is amazing. The whole 'Hidden' album is one to check out. I believe NME had this as the best Album of 2010. I was a bit skeptical at first listen but the album is great from start to finish. Some of the other highlights for me were the songs Three Thousand and 5.
