I wonder if the historical slate of band names was whipped clean would indie bands like this one out of Brooklyn still choose the names that they do? I guess every band has a different reason for picking their name aside from trying to sound cool, but it just makes me wonder. After watching this music video for some reason I feel like I’ve could toss my brain into one of those side loading laundry machines for a few cycles and I wouldn’t know anything strange happened. There’s something emotionally strong about this song but like most of the objects in the music video, all the sounds seem to be slowly destroyed like dragging something behind a car while it slowly grinds away.
The masks remind me of a bunch of other music videos. Is there some kind of psychological trend or message here that I’m missing here? Anyone, anyone, … …. Bueler, Bueler?
I never heard these guys before, they’re getting pretty popular I guess since they’ve got some big production and talent in their latest music videos, this animated music video is pretty unique, looks like Ren & Stimpy animators’ work. The song is energetic and releases a powerful rock sound that ebbs with the straight treble vocals. Good track I wanted to share.
I love singing along with the Untouched and Intact song which comes from their Scream and Light Up the Sky album which was released in 2007. Apparently this indie alternative rock pop band has had some exposure in the media with a performance of Thin Layer on the TV show “One Tree Hill”. I’ve never seen that show before, I just really was in love with their Untouched and Intact song.
HA this song is great! It comes off the band’s self-titled album “Friendly Fires”! I just love this video, but at first was a bit thrown off. The lack of visuals and slow energy in the beginning made me hesitate, but the more you watch, the more you love it! The song is awesome too. It’s like the name of one of my favorite ski runs, “Sheer Bliss”! This band, if I venture to call them indie, or punkpop, or poppunk is from England and released their latest album through a record label in Berlin.
The high emotive and energetic nature of Passion Pit come to mind and the playfulness and originality of the music video remind me of Does it offend you? Yeah!‘s Epic Last Song. I love the feeling these kinds of songs bring me. It’s encouraging, not self deprecating, inspirational in it’s attitude, and is the kind of music that lets you do and be whatever you want. Music is truly a force in this world, and has such an enormous power to affect.
I hope when you listen to any of the songs I post on here that you find what you can love about then, that they meet you like a stranger who feels like an old friend and brings only brightness and enjoyment to your day. I love this stuff and I hope you do too! I just want to help others discover new music and in my time keeping this blog up over the last few months I’ve noticed that because of it, I’ve been keeping up on finding new music and am feeling great positive energy through doing something I’m passionate about. Combining two things I’m good at and love, listening to music and making websites. hehehehe

Sleigh Bells is a new band that hit things hard this year and are cruising with their buzz. Their music instills confidence and occasionally has the effect of downloading Kung-Fu into the brain of the listener as they go about their day suddenly thinking they can kick everyone’s ass around them. Their songs have the boldness and aggressive pop of MIA’s Paper Airplanes single with it’s guitars and electro pop sounds hitting the speakers so hard that you wouldn’t know if bombs were going off in the street. This song is one of their tamer ones. Take a listen to these and see what you think.
Just saw this band last night on Seattle’s KEXP.org Song of the Day post. I’m a big fan of the music video, and in the roughness of this indie bands grunge echo rock vocals and chaos of sound the dissonance within their music cancels its own chaos out in a way can comes out clean somehow. Their is a distinct lo-fi overcast to the entire song but the feeling that it extracts and the attitude of the protagonist in their music video forces me to give them respect for their own accomplishments and what their achieving in the song and the great potential they have as a music producing entity.

For some reason I feel like I need to write an excuse for posting bands that I think a lot of people already know about, but then I realized that most people reading this are those looking for a description of the band and haven’t heard of them already. Well, everyone has to hear a song for the first time don’t they and there’s nothing special about hearing a song before someone else has. Although some people like to think that just because they’ve heard a song before someone else has that it makes them special in some way, but I strongly disagree with that. The only think special about them is that they know of something good that they should be sharing with others, that’s all.
About this band, well, to make things easy and to throw in a little bit of self-depricating unexplained irony, I’m just going to copy and paste some blurbs from other sources like Wikipedia and Last.fm. LOL Read below.
Crystal Castles were named after the lines “The fate of the world is safe in Crystal Castles” and “Crystal Castles, the source of all power”, both lines referring to fictional character She-Ra’s fortress in the sky. It is also a reference to the Atari arcade game Crystal Castles, as the band’s sound often echoes arcade game noise. Read the rest of this entry »
This song doesn’t pull any punches, nor does it care what its hair looks like, nor does it care if you like it, I like this song because it doesn’t snuggle up with you at night next to your cheek while you count sheep, instead it invites all its punk friends over to your place at random times of the night drinks all your booze, passes out in your hallway and wakes up momentarily when your door hits its head as you open it. Ah,…. the good ‘ol days.
This band reminds me a bit of The Limousines or of InnerPartySystem by the tape deck kind of sound quality they have. The music video isn’t fantastic but I love this song. See if you can catch the steel drums in this song. Enjoy.
