The Stills - Lola Stars and Stripes



Another Montreal band hmmmmmmmmmmmmmm go figure. "Logic Will Break Your Heart" is an album that never gets old and Lola is the first song on the album. Great album and great song - I just can't believe it is 7 years old now.

The Morning Benders - Excuses



Pretty cool version here with the live session. It has the sound of a band from the 60's, I am sure my mom would love this stuff.

Wilco - Radio Cure



Yankee Hotel Foxtrot is one of the all time great American albums. I can listen to this album from start to finish any day of the week wether it was when it was released in 2002 or on April 23rd, 2010 and still think it is an American Gem. Radio Cure is one song on the album that caught my attention at first listen and I could listen to it on repeat. This version is from the DVD I am Trying to Break Your Heart, it is on the bonus DVD.

Band of Horses - Factory FREE DOWNLOAD

http://www.bandofhorses.com/

Off to the right on their website just enter your birthdate and email address and they will send you a link to download the song Factory. Can't wait for the new album!

Doves - There Goes the Fear



Here is a nice little acoustic version of There Goes the Fear. It is a shame that the Doves have never got more recognition for their work, being overshadowed by bands like Coldplay. The Doves are brilliant in my opinion and create nothing but great music. It took the movie 500 days of Summer to even get a few people to listen. If you want to hear a truly great album there is nothing better then The Last Broadcast, from start to finish it is fantastic.

Mt Desolation (members of The Killers, Keane, Noah and the Whale, and Mumford and Sons)

Check out this article from Canoe about the band Mt Desolation, sounds like a nice little side project.

CANOE -- JAM! Music: Killers, Keane form supergroup

The Killers' drummer Ronnie Vannucci has joined forces with Keane's keyboard player/songwriter Tim Rice-Oxley, as well as Noah And The Whale star Tom Hobden and Winston Marshall from Mumford and Sons to create a band called Mt Desolation.

Plants and Animals - Bye Bye Bye



Apparently this song was a crucial song in the TV show Chuck. I have never watched Chuck so I wouldn't know about that. This song is from Plants and Animals debut album Parc Avenue. They actually just released a new album yesterday but I haven't had a chance to check it out yet. These guys come from Montreal I believe. Not surprising the Montreal indie scene is in full force.

http://www.ash-official.com/

Pretty sweet deal going on here with the band Ash. They are giving away a free download every two weeks I believe for the whole year. I just downloaded Space shot (live), Dare to Dream (Mogwai Remix), Arcadia (Live). Ash is a great band that has never really made it in the US of A for whatever reason I don't know.

Badly Drawn Boy - Pissing in the Wind



Spitting in the Wind vs. Pissing in the Wind -- whatever. Badly Drawn Boys debut album Hour of the Bewilderbeast was an instant classic in my books. This is a great song and I actually think the video is quite hilarious. HA............ha...ha

anyways here is the album version of the song if you are dying to hear him say PISS

Travis -- Flowers in the Window

Beach Fossils - Daydream



My good friend Jay actually told me about these guys a couple weeks back. I initially downloaded this song "Daydream" and almost put it on repeat for the day. It has a great sound and I can't wait for the whole album to be released. This is a cool little live version of the song and their is not alot out right now by these guys. You can get the Desert Sand/Daydream single on itunes and emusic and I am sure a bunch of other sites. I just read that their self-titled debut album will be released May 25th. These guys hail from Brooklyn and from what I have heard so far I expect great things from them, and I am sure they will be dubbed the next big thing in due time.

Here is another place to check out these guys: Insound.com did a live session with them which is awesome and worth a few minutes of anyones time. http://www.insound.com/sessions/

Julian Casablancas - 11th Dimension



ahhhh how I miss The Strokes - here's to hoping for a release of a new record. Julian's solo project is a pretty good one, this is a catchy song.

The XX - VCR



Here is a live version of VCR by The xx. This band is about as indie as they come. I guess you have to be somewhat of a 'hipster' to listen to these guys - the fact is that the album is fantastic and is the chill of all chill (or something like that).

MGMT - Kids



This video has been viewed over 27 million times for a reason. This song will surely make you happy.

Karen O & The Kids - All is Love



I know alot of people didn't really like the movie Where the Wild Things Are, but I actually really liked it. I think it had a lot to do with the music, I think Karen O (lead singer from the Yeah Yeah Yeahs) made the perfect soundtrack to this movie.

The Gaslight Anthem - Here's Looking at you Kid



Here is the album version of Here's looking at you kid. These New Jersey guys have a great sound and have been heavily compared to Bruce Springsteen of all people. The '59 Sound is an album that not many people have heard about it but once they listen once they won't forget it.

The Gaslight Anthem - Casanova, Baby!



Here is a cool video courtesy of NME of Brian Fallon (lead singer of The Gaslight Anthem) performing an acoustic version of Casanova, Baby!
The whole album is worth checking out, one of those ones you can listen from start to finish over and over. Album is The '59 Sound. They also have their debut album Sink or Swim which is also worth a listen and their E.P. Senor and the Queen, I can't get enough of this sound.

Dead Man's Bones - In the Room Where you Sleep



You know just because I am the number 1 Ryan Gosling fan out there. This is a pretty cool album and definitly worth checking out.

Broken Social Scene - All to All



Nice fresh sound, it makes me happy. Gotta love these fellow Canadians.

Either Way - The Twang feat. Mike Skinner



Since I missed a few days thought I would add another tune today. Here is a pretty sweet remix featuring one of my favourites Mike Skinner.

Muse - Resistance



I meant to post this on Monday the day of the concert here in SLC. This is my fav Muse song. I have to say that seeing Muse live in concert is something everyone should experience. These guys are unbelievable live and the whole performance is just an art to them.

Jónsi - Go Do


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T6HjT4SQKJI

Couldn't get this to embed but there is the youtube link to it.

Jónsi is the lead singer from Sigur Ros and this is the first single from his new album. Song sounds pretty cool actually I think it has a little more Pop sound to it. I like it and will be grabbing the album when it comes out on April 6th I believe.

Band of Horses -- The Great Salt Lake



I have always enjoyed this band and have felt they are under appreciated and underrated as a band. This song I guess comes a little close to home for me.

Radiohead - KILLER CARS



Here is a pretty sweet live version of Killer Cars by Radiohead back in 9/6/1994 in Japan. I have always loved this song but at the same time I am afraid to listen to this while driving. This is the all time great Radiohead B-side by my books. Nothing better then Radiohead in the Bends years. Changed my whole prespective on music and I will never be the same. Thom Yorke is a God.
