Forest Without A Bear

So the new Minus the Bear leaked yesterday apparently. I've heard some of it and along with keeping in Minus the Bear's awesome sound, it sounds amazing. A little more keyboardy and slightly more instruments and it sounds great. I'm not going to go too much into detail, but the album drops May 4th. It's called OMNI. I've snagged one song that's still on Youtube but I can't guarantee it will be up for long. Check it out...Summer Angel is the name of the song.

Before an Explosion

So this is me cresting a wave, I believe. I bring to you today a band that I'm pretty sure is about to blow up. Don't count me as trendy for posting this, but these guys are worth allowing your ears some listening time. Two Door Cinema Club hail from Ireland and have been rocking since 2007. The band just realeased their debut album Tourist History in March and it has been getting some good circulation. Complete with our well known Indie stances, swaying form the hips up, suit coats and all, Two Door Cinema Club sounds like a mix of toned down Foals, The Kooks, and a little hellogoodbye for good measure. I like it. A lot. I've got two videos for you to enjoy. Pick this album up! You will not regret doing so.

On The Fence

So I've decided to put off writing a paper that should really already be written to update some music on here. I'm really trying to make this blog breathe once again.
Firstly comes Thao With The Get Down Stay Down. Apparently this band has been around a little while but I've only recently begun to listen to them. And I must say, I was skeptical at first; but I really like the sound now. I'm putting up a single from their 2008 album We Brave beet Stings and All.

Thao - Bag of Hammers

Next is a band on of my band mates turned me on to. Neon Trees gained some spotlight after opening a few times for The Killers. This led to a record deal with Mercury Records and finally their new album Habits. Neon Trees, from Provo, Utah has an interesting sound that make me feel like I've heard the songs before, but not in a jaded way. Definitely looking to big things for these guys. Here's their video for the single Animal of the album Habits

...Oh and hooray for female drummers!
