Only the brave and original survive the indie music maelstrom which either sucks new guitar bands down into the depths or produces identikit sounds capitalising on trends of any given time. Bastille have moved away from the common output being churned out by indie bands to create pop songs that are absorbing and genre defining without ever being formulaic....
Hailing from Linköping, Sweden, Ghost B.C. formed in in 2008. They released their heralded debut album, Opus Eponymous, on October 18, 2011. UK's Metal Hammer praised the album saying it was "an arcane occult feast," while this side of the pond Decibel Magazine hailed they "compel on pretty much every sensory level," and the Village Voice proclaimed "Ghost is Swedish, heavy, and tasked with slicing your soul to bits--or at least your ears....
American folk singer that's way more popular in Europe right now. Don't let the inappropriate band name fool you. We had visions of dorky noise rock, or maybe fuzzy garage pop goofs, when in fact, King Dude is something much more haunting and enthralling, initially lumped in with the whole witch house scene, due in part to releases on witch house labels like Disaro and Clan Destine, the sound of King Dude, aka TJ Cowgill, who also does time in Book Of Black Earth, is more a dark brooding, neo-folk, think Death In June, Blood Axis, Cult Of Youth, Sol Invictus, urgently strummed guitars, deep dramatic sung/spoken vocals, the vibe haunting and otherworldly, minor key and melancholy, occasionally strident and majestic, but more often moody and mournful, the lyrics full of blood and sky, earth and fire, death and the beyond, a ritualistic doom folk, channeling the seventies British acid folk of groups like Comus and Incredible String Band through the more modern industrial folk sound of the above mentioned groups....
Cherub is a sexy electro-pop duo that is the dance love-child of 80’s funk, and pop-music from the future. The members of Cherub, Jordan Kelley and Jason Huber, share a love for honest original music and vibrant live performance, with a common goal to share a little bit of sex, a little bit of drugs, and a whole lot of love with people across the globe.
For a band that burst on the scene with an ecstatically received 16 minutes of music (2006's A Lesson In Crime EP) followed in rapid fire succession by additional EPs and singles (Smith, "Your English Is Good") and a debut album (2008's Elephant Shell) all in under two years time, you'd think 26 months between albums would be an interminable wait....
An indie rock outfit based in Vancouver, Said the Whale was formed by Ben Worcester and Tyler Bancroft. Former members of such bands as My Buddy Dave, the Millionaires, and WordsOverMusic, the two soon expanded the group's membership to five, adding Jeff LaForge (bass), Spencer Schoening (drums), and Jaycelyn Brown (keyboards)....
In this case, one man's sorrow is the listener's good fortune. With a sound imbued with rock and roll idealism and tainted by life's complexities, Birdy is simultaneously a homage to indie rock, past and present and a sonic exploration of their personal life experience....
In July 2010, a struggling singer-songwriter and musician named Christina Perri had a life-changing moment when she was asked to perform a song she had written, a defiant break-up anthem called "Jar of Hearts," on the Fox show So You Think You Can Dance....
Each a respected producer in his own right, Kingston and Young God joined forces when they decided to create the group Blue Sky Black Death. After they signed to Mush Records in 2005, the duo set to work on making their first record....
