DR. DOG


ARTIST / BAND: DR. DOG
SONG (MP3): AIN'T IT STRANGE
ALBUM: takers and leavers
FILE UNDER: Rock / Psychedelic / Pop
LABEL: Park the van
INFO: Dr. Dog has been creating music in various incarnations in their hometown of Philadelphia for nearly six years now. From the humble beginnings of THE PSYCHEDELIC SWAMP, a concept album realized in the damp ruin of a flooded basement, through the critically acclaimed EASY BEAT (2005) the band has cultivated a strong national following through their energetic live shows. They spent the better part of 2006 in the studio cooking up two new releases: a six song EP called TAKERS AND LEAVERS, which will be released worldwide on Sept 12, 2006, and a yet untitled long player that will see the light of day in February 2007.

TIM WILLIAMS


ARTIST / BAND: TIM WILLIAMS
SONG (MP3): NOVEL
ALBUM: Merchant Heart EP
FILE UNDER: Indie / Alternative / Acoustic
LABEL: Dovecote Records
INFO: Sincerity - it’s a word thrown around a lot in reference to a lot of contemporary music, but what does it exactly mean? Does it relate to honesty? Do we, as listeners, understand that it makes the artist in question’s music better or worse? Does it mean that we think the artist is telling the truth, or that they’re just being quite emotional? Does it really matter? To an extent, no, but in the case of Brooklyn, NY’s Tim Williams, the open door portraits that he paints of life in his songs hinge on their piercing naturalness. The breathy guitar, the dusty room reverb, and the voice that cracks with the freedom of two bottles of red wine – it’s not some stock attempt at honesty and impact; it’s a fresh, rough, impressionist landscape of the world Williams’ sees. Remember that old, tattered copy of Leaves of Grass that’s sitting in that murky basement of whatever house you grew up in? If you found that one night at 3AM, reeling from the loss of someone or something, seismic or miniscule – it’s kinda like that.

EMILY HAINES


ARTIST / BAND: EMILY HAINES
SONG (MP3): THE LOTTERY
ALBUM: Knives Don't Have Your Back
FILE UNDER: Alternative
LABEL: Last Gang Records
INFO: Four years and four cities later, Metric's Emily Haines is finally (almost) ready to release her debut solo effort.On September 26, Last Gang Records will release Knives Don't Have Your Back, which was written and recorded in Los Angeles, Montreal, Toronto, and New York over the last four years, and features contributors including Sparklehorse's Scott Minor, Broken Social Scene's Justin Peroff, Stars' Evan Cranley, and Metric's Jimmy Shaw.

ARTISAN


ARTIST / BAND: ARTISAN
SONG (MP3): WIND CHANGE
ALBUM: demo
FILE UNDER: Acoustic / Indie / Folk
LABEL: none
INFO: Crisp, rhythmic, and melodic, "Wind Change" sparkles with a not often heard sort of acoustic/electronic energy. Certainly there are any number of people out there attempting to combine these two disparate sonic camps; a sub-genre even emerged early in the '00s--"folktronica"--that sought to name at least some of these efforts. And yet achieving a bona fide blend of acoustic and electronic instruments is harder than it may seem to the dial-twiddling crowd: what we tend to get are either blurry tunes heavy in atmosphere but light in actual song-iness, or simple guitar songs with distracting effects thrown in.

IN FLIGHT RADIO


ARTIST / BAND: IN FLIGHT RADIO
SONG (MP3): COME BACK AND STAY
ALBUM: In Flight Radio
FILE UNDER: Rock / Powerpop / Acoustic
LABEL: Last Broadcast Records
INFO: With the album reaching number 10 on CMJs top 200 most added chart, In Flight Radio has already begun to receive recognition as an up and coming band. They are in regular rotation at college radio stations across the country and have been climbing the CMJ top 200 for 4 weeks straight! They can also be heard on internet radio heard worldwide, including the popular WOXY.com. In addition, XM SATELLITE RADIO'S UNSIGNED channel featured the songs Come back and Stay and Best Day of the Year on The Futures a show of the top twelve artists to look for in your future as theyre gaining momentum every day. CLEAR CHANNEL also added Best Day of the Year to the Undiscovered station in March 2006, and in August 2006 In Flight Radio had 2 songs featured on the DOMESTIC DISTURBANCE show on KROCK2.COM. Jack Rabid from The Big Takeover said that "She [Peira] comes off as a distant cousin to the Cocteau twins Liz Frazier mixed with a more dominant Ani DiFranco." With the intimacy of singer-songwriters like Beth Orton and Damien Rice, and the power and intensity of bands like U2 and Coldplay, In Flight Radio has a collection of unique and memorable songs that stay with you long after the last chord has faded away.

8MM


ARTIST / BAND: 8MM
SONG (MP3): STUNNING
ALBUM: Songs To Live And Die By
FILE UNDER: Trip Hop / Down-tempo / Nu-Jazz
LABEL: Curb Appeal Records
INFO: Somewhere in the heat of New Orleans you'll find that life is lived differently. It's a place of ghosts and celebration, a place where music hangs heavy in the air and all the music and all the souls that have ever played it there somehow remain, alive and buoyant in the humidity. The thickness this gives the air slows things down a bit, and when you breathe it in it soaks through your bones and settles in the marrow. There is an ethereal wave, a pulse really, that you can ride through the chaos. It becomes part of your blood and your eyes begin to change. You will never see this world the same. You will never feel the same about this city or this life. It has taken part of you and given something beautiful and painful back. This kind of enchantment is the reason that people are drawn to New Orleans. It's as if the city wakes and surges to the surface just enough for you to hear her heart beat, hear her breath.

ANNUALS


ARTIST / BAND: ANNUALS
SONG (MP3): BROTHER
ALBUM: Be He Me
FILE UNDER: Experimental / Indie / Alternative
LABEL: http://www.acefu.com/
INFO: From the quiet capitol of North Carolina, Annuals are as close as possible to being a family without sharing the same DNA. Long-time friends Adam Baker (Singer/Songwriter), Kenny Florence (Guitar) and Mike Robinson (Bass) have been in bands together since they were children, about 7 years now. In the last few years, Zack Oden (Drums/Guitar), Anna Spence (Piano/Synth), and Nick Radford (Drums), no one over the age of 22, have joined the vast lineup. This multi-talented group cannot be typecast in the lineup however; members often switch instruments live and in studio and offer input in the way of samples, vocals and percussion creating what might be called a musical commune.

SNAKES & MUSIC


ARTIST / BAND: SNAKES & MUSIC
SONG (MP3): SINKING SHIPS
ALBUM: Isabelle
FILE UNDER: folk / country / indie rock
LABEL: Universal Warning Records
INFO: Scattered about NJ and Philadelphia , Snakes and Music sound is of the folk / country / indie rock genre with strong melodies, a tight rhythm section, layered guitars and an array of piano / keyboards. Live or recorded, the Snakes maintain a dynamic that ranges from a whisper to a hollar with psychedelic keyboards and reverb guitars filling in the gaps. This band is the perfect soundtrack for a drug induced road trip from NYC to Texas. Featuring Dan O'Neill ( bass ) and Andrew Low ( vox / guitars ) of the Jazz June, Snakes and Music play a unique blend of indie rock with country and folk influences. Lead guitarist Gregg Levy whose past credits include Citron ( formed by Mike Jourgenson of Wilco ), lays down his lazy Neil Young styleslow finger melodies. Recent additions to the band include Brent Sisk on keyboards and Jonathan Nigro ( formally of TransLove Airways ) on drums. The oufit has been endlessly playing the east coast and will continue until " the candles blow out "

TROLLEYVOX


ARTIST / BAND: TROLLEYVOX
SONG (MP3): I KNOW THAT YOU'RE HIGH
ALBUM: Present The Karaoke Meltdowns
FILE UNDER: Indie / Rock / Pop
LABEL: Transit of Venus
INFO: If Chrissy Hynde and Bob Mould jammed with “The Byrds”, or if Pete Townshend and Mitch Mitchell joined Ben Watt and Tracey Thorn in early “Everything But The Girl” they might sound something like The Trolleyvox. Gorgeous vocal and harmonies on top of layers of arpeggiated guitars, percussion and piano combine to deliver emotionally impactful songs with hooks that worm their way into your brain and don’t burn out. read more from the source...

THE MORNING BENDERS


ARTIST / BAND: THE MORNING BENDERS
SONG (MP3): GRAIN OF SALT
ALBUM: 3 Songs
FILE UNDER: Rock / Indie / Alternative
LABEL: none
INFO: One year ago in the northern region of California among the rolling hills of Berkeley, our lord God in heaven made love to the sweet sounds of rock n roll and gave birth to The Morning Benders. Started by Chris Chu in a moment of magical bliss, just listening to the music of these four men combined will cure any disease known to man. They blend guitars with love to create songs that sound very much like a gentle morning walk on a warm summers day, when the wind rides on your shoulders and tosses your hair about with its soft caresses. Songs such as I Was Wrong and Heavy Hearts (from recently released EP Loose Change) remind listeners what it feels like to be alive again, creating an emotional spiral of euphoric ejaculations that dig deep into the heart of Indie Rock. Indeed, their music is the music of gods, and their heavy show load this past year has proven them to be quite the presence in the bay area. They are a glowing flower of rock in this little musical garden we like to call Earth.

CORDALENE


ARTIST / BAND: CORDALENE
SONG (MP3): KISSED AWAKE
ALBUM: The Star Ledger
FILE UNDER: Indie / Pop / Rock
LABEL: Dalloway Records
INFO: Fresh out of the studio with Producer Brian McTear (Hail Social, Burning Brides), Cordalene’s latest full-length record, The Star Ledger, will be released on Dalloway Records. Hailing from Philly, Cordalene has shared the stage with the likes of Weezer, Phantom Planet, My Morning Jacket, Ben Lee, Dashboard Confessional, Rooney, the Comas, as well as Philly faves Dr. Dog and The Capitol Years.

MISS VIOLETTA BEAUREGARDE


ARTIST / BAND: MISS VIOLETTA BEAUREGARDE
SONG (MP3): THE UNBEARABLE LIGHTNESS OF A FARM TRACTOR
ALBUM: Odi Profanum Vulgus Et Arceo
FILE UNDER: Screamo / Electro / Grindcore
LABEL: Temporary Residence Ltd
INFO: first of all, i'm fat, so dont trust in the pics you've seen and most of alla dont add me if you wish to score me cause you could get slightly disappointed at seeing me in the real life. i could write a bunch of things i did just to try to impress you and inflate my poor inconsistent ego, but the truth is that i'm an untalented dork, so i'm pasting the small bio on my website www.violettasucks.com, go there and wank on it. I was born in switzerland. I dont listen to electro or whattafuck. i just do it. 5 years ago i found out it was funny pushing buttons and rotating knobs to make stupid noises and make fun of those pretentious indie electroassholes. hey youuuu, i know it's just noise and screams, you dont need to remember me i know what i'm doing. On April 2004 a small indie label from bologna (italy) called Anemic Dracula Records was so brave to put out my first cd, "evidentemente non abito a san francisco" (translation: obviously i dont live in san francisco). I used to have a mouse, her name was Houdini and a guinea pig called O, and a cat, Enola. they gave me inspiration. but the died several months ago.

EL PRESIDENTE


ARTIST / BAND: EL PRESIDENTE
SONG (MP3): TURN THIS THING AROUND
ALBUM: EL PRESIDENTE
FILE UNDER: Indie Pop
LABEL: Red Ink
INFO: BRITAINS SECRET REVOLUTION - According to Mark Millar LETS TALK ABOUT PHYSICS: Solar flares occur in eleven-year cycles. This sunspot activity has been linked to everything from schizophrenia to migraine headaches, but nobody wants to talk about the music. This phenomenon coincides with a periodic revolution in global consciousness and, every eleven years, the old is replaced by the new. NOW PAY ATTENTION: In 1955 there was Rock and Roll. In 1966 there was Psychedelia. In 1977 there was Punk In 1988 there was Acid House and in 1999 there was EL PRESIDENTE THE SECRET REVOLUTION: Brit-pop was safe. A world of floppy-haired, middle-class schoolboys with recording contracts and working-class millionaires pacified by B-list starlets bought, brainwashed and trained by the highest echelons of MI5. Their endless retreads of their fathers vinyl collections had created a cosy consensus in the British music scene as the country waited for the next big thing.

SOME ACTION


ARTIST / BAND: SOME ACTION
SONG (MP3): DON'T YOU LOOK FOR ME
ALBUM: The Band That Sucked The Life Out Of Rock 'n Roll And Killed Itself In The Process
FILE UNDER: Rock / Punk
LABEL: gigantic music
INFO: thing Some Action might ever fix is rock and roll. They’re outlaws in a city where dancing and smoking are illegal, outcasts in a genre where style shines over substance and outnumbered by faux fashion bands full of retro rockers. And yet, here they are: the kids have spoken, the beer has been spilled, many of us have been waiting for this but few are prepared.read more from the source...

ENSEMBLE


ARTIST / BAND: ENSEMBLE
SONG (MP3): SUMMERSTORM (FEAT. MILEECE)
ALBUM: Ensemble
FILE UNDER: Electronica / Pop / Psychedelic
LABEL: fat-cat.co.uk/
INFO: Originally from Toulouse, France, Olivier Alary created Ensemble as his musical persona in 1998, as a platform to explore the meeting point between melodic noise and disjointed pop.After dropping out from an architecture course at college, Olivier moved to London. Initially working under the name ‘Hearing Is Our Concern’, he was actually the first person the newly-founded FatCat label ever received a demo from. We talked with him for a while about putting a release out, but Olivier wanted to work further on his tracks and in the end nothing happened. The name was changed to Ensemble and a chance meeting with Rephlex Records in 2000 resulted in the release of his first album, ‘Sketch Proposals’.

ROBERT POLLARD


ARTIST / BAND: ROBERT POLLARD
SONG (MP3): SUPERNATURAL CAR LOVER
ALBUM: Normal Happiness
FILE UNDER: Rock / Pop Punk / Psychedelic
LABEL: http://www.mergerecords.com/
INFO: We’ll address the obvious question first: what’s the difference between a Robert Pollard album and one by Guided By Voices? The answer’s easy: everything, and nothing. Score!Guided By Voices, one of the most widely admired and influential rock groups of the 90s and beyond were famous for exactly two things. The first was — for complicated reasons — drinking beer, the second was writing an astounding quantity of really great rock songs, in a dizzying variety of styles and arrangements, and recording them on whatever equipment was at hand, whether boombox or four-track or professional recording studio. The other second thing was a revolving-door line-up whose only constant was singer/songwriter, Robert Pollard, whose output moreover overflowed, synchronically, on a seemingly endless series of side projects, solo records, and bizarre collaborations with, confusingly, ex-members of the band, current members of the band, and random passersby (including the co-founder of this very record label, Mac McCaughan, who sent Pollard a tape of instrumentals by mistake and found to his surprise that he had formed a pseudo-band called Go Back Snowball and released an album).read more from the source...

BOUND STEMS


ARTIST / BAND: BOUND STEMS
SONG (MP3): WESTERN BIOGRAPHIC
ALBUM: Appreciation Night
FILE UNDER: Indie / Pop / Alternative
LABEL: http://www.flameshovel.com/
INFO: Is a bound stem a reference to flowers or what? Sure: or it's a word which has lost its place in the language-the ruth in ruthless, the gruntle which becomes disgruntled. A bound stem depends on its prefixes and suffixes to thrive. Chicago's Bound Stems is Dan Fleury (guitar), Bobby Gallivan (vocals, guitar), Janie Porche (vocals, guitar, sampler, violin, etc.), Dan Radzicki (bass, keys, vocals) and Evan Sult (drums, tapes). Fleury, Radz, and Bobby were friends from high school basketball on; Evan arrived from Seattle and Harvey Danger in September 2002. They started writing songs all the time, then playing out, then writing some more, and by the time Janie had completed the transition from friend to roommate to band member, The Logic of Building the Body Plan EP had been released by Flameshovel Records and they were deep into the construction of Appreciation Night, Bound Stems' debut full-length, also on Flameshovel.

RAFTER


ARTIST / BAND: RAFTER
SONG (MP3): BICYCLE
ALBUM: 10 Songs
FILE UNDER: Rock / Indie / Pop
LABEL: http://www.asthmatickitty.com/
INFO: Rafter Roberts stands no taller than the normal human male… yet his firey red-haired head is filled with the minutae of music, swirling and churning constantly. Fortunately this leaves little room for fear, of which Rafter has nearly none. His fearlessness has led him to do just about everything he sets his mind to, which of course includes free-for-all rowdy sweatiness, hanky panky and rolling on the stage yelping. Not to mention playing in bands since the age of two, new fatherhood, running a business, goin to shows, building a new studio, makin his own music, recording bands and eating raw… all without going furiously nuts. This is not a bungee-jump kind of fearlessness, rather it is a willingness to move beyond obstacles (mental or physical) as if they were not actually there, all the while a happy glint resting in his eye. His is a strong will tempered by humor—one of the most intense and powerful music nerds you may ever meet. There is a refreshing lack of poseur hipness to Rafter Roberts, and in it’s stead is found a pure enthusiasm for people, for doing it yourself and the helping hand, for kicking against the pricks and kicking out the jams. read more from the source...

THE BIG SLEEP


ARTIST / BAND: THE BIG SLEEP
SONG (MP3): MURDER
ALBUM: Son Of The Tiger
FILE UNDER: Rock
LABEL: http://www.frenchkissrecords.com/
INFO: "Finally, a new NYC band that isn't pretending to care what a young NYC band should supposedly sound like. These guys aren't retro (if anything, they are future-o), don't employ Wire-like guitars, and don't do the Hell yelp or Curtis croon. The Big Sleep are a trio that plays driving psych-rock that sounds similar to the forever-underrated Turing Machine, or Trans Am back when they were good. This band is extremely tight on the rhythms, creating walls of stunning guitar sound backed by precise percussion. Their songs definitely get a groove going, and you can almost hear each member's pure delight at how well they can rock it with each other. But their jams never cross that common threshold into ostentatious grandstanding. The Big Sleep know less is more, and 4-5 minutes is all they need to completely hook us and reel us right in." - Oh My Rockness

THE NEIN


ARTIST / BAND: THE NEIN
SONG (MP3): SEXY BEAST
ALBUM: Transitionalisms
FILE UNDER:
LABEL: Pop / Rock / Experimental
INFO: The Nein formed in early 2003 after the demise of Cohen and Biggers' former band, The White Octave. Based in Durham, NC, The Nein self-released two CDRs before becoming one of the first American bands on Canadian label Sonic Unyon. Their label debut, a self-titled six-song EP, was released in October 2004, eliciting praise from both sides of the border and helping set the stage for what was to follow.

CATFISH HAVEN


ARTIST / BAND: CATFISH HAVEN
SONG (MP3): CRAZY FOR LEAVING
ALBUM: Tell Me
FILE UNDER: Rock / Soul / Indie
LABEL: Secretly Canadian
INFO: Chicago-based trio Catfish Haven play raw, soulful, and melodic indie rock that tips its hat to both the chilly North and the hazy South with equal parts passion and peril. Named after the Missouri trailer park where frontman George Hunter spent his formative years, the group, which also includes bass player Miguel Castillo and drummer Ryan Farnham, released its electrifying debut EP, Please Come Back, on the Secretly Canadian label in January of 2006. ~ James Christopher Monger, All Music Guide

SIMON DAWES


ARTIST / BAND: SIMON DAWES
SONG (MP3): SALUTE THE INSTITUTION
ALBUM: Carnivore
FILE UNDER: Alternative / Classic Rock / Indie
LABEL: http://www.recordcollectionmusic.com/
INFO: Simon Dawes is a band… named after no one. Though they’re mostly just creaking into being twenty-one (bassist Wylie Gelber is barely 18), you could play their new record Carnivore for anyone and tell the most insane lies about it: reissue of some lost rock artifact, unknown bootleg side project containing a member of Traffic, Pavement and The Kinks - and they would all be believed. The young men in Simon Dawes are scholars and hard workers, taking a musicologists rock diet and making it alive in relevant in ways it hasn't been for millions of years. read more from the source...

OOIOO


ARTIST / BAND: OOIOO
SONG (MP3): UMA
ALBUM: TIAGA
FILE UNDER: Jungle / Indie
LABEL: http://www.thrilljockey.com/
INFO: CD comes in a deluxe, holographic-foil embossed digipak aimed to enhance the transcendental experience
Communication with nature is not a new theme for OOIOO. Visually, album art designs and band photos bare hidden repetitions of “o-o-i-o-o” and videos have visually featured woods of the forest above any member of the band. Much of the band’s past music has incorporated tribal rhythms and wild sounds, but an even more prominent focus on nature is clearly stated on the new album, TAIGA right from the title, which means “big river” in Japanese and “forest” in Russian.

FAVOURITE SONS


ARTIST / BAND: FAVOURITE SONS
SONG (MP3): HANG ON GIRL
ALBUM: Down Beside Your Beauty
FILE UNDER: Indie / Rock / Alternative
LABEL: Vice Recordings
INFO: "This band exists to talk about the things you go through when you confront the big stuff: love, regret, fear," says Ken Griffin, the singer and principle songwriter of Favourite Sons. "We’ve all been right to that edge, pushed through it and now we're back to show people the other side, as brutal as it might be." read more from the source...

PAGE FRANCE


ARTIST / BAND: PAGE FRANCE
SONG (MP3): JUNKYARD
ALBUM: Hello, Dear Wind
FILE UNDER: Folk / Pop / Indie
LABEL: Suicide Squeeze
INFO: Life doesn’t always have to be so complicated, it is possible to avoid the frills, glam, drama and illusion and still manage to have some fun. Music, to, doesn’t have to be so overwrought; you can make something great without any presupposed irony and or angsty pretension and no one knows this more than Baltimore quartet, Page France.

MOBIUS BAND


ARTIST / BAND: MOBIUS BAND
SONG (MP3): A HINT OF BLOOD
ALBUM: New demos
FILE UNDER: Indie / Electro / Rock
LABEL: http://www.ghostly.com/
INFO: After three years of wood-shedding in the pine forests of Shutesbury, Massachusetts, electronic rock trio Mobius Band has traded up: from shoe-string home recording to Peter Katis’s Tarquin Studios (Interpol, Rainer Maria); from rural Massachusetts to Brooklyn (two-thirds of the band anyway); and from their own label to Ghostly International.These changes follow the band’s gradual evolution over the course of three self-released EPs, from exploratory composers of instrumental suites to crafters of gracefully intricate pop gems. The band’s trademark sound combines loose guitars, delicate vocals and hard-hitting drums with tightly-wound electronics. Their songs are filled with mournful refrains and unexpected textures, accented by soaring guitar lines and an uncanny cinematic sense. read more from the source...

THE KINGDOM


ARTIST / BAND: THE KINGDOM
SONG (MP3): HIGHER
ALBUM: K1
FILE UNDER: R&B / Soul / Indie
LABEL: http://www.arenarockrecordingco.com/
INFO: The conceptually complete and enthusiastically performed song-cycle finds singer/mastermind Charles Westmoreland re-imagining Johnny Unitas as a mythical deity hurling “the sun across the sky to the locomotive horse with dove wings,” and goes on to tell of a hero “in love and covered in horses’ blood” who plays a cosmic game of football in the heavens. In using a familiar sports hero as the metaphorical point of departure, Westmoreland offers a fitting example of The Kingdom’s aesthetic intent: the transformation of the easily recognizable trappings of contemporary indie rock (melodic guitar jangle, low-budget keyboards) into something otherworldly and divine. read more from the source...

UNITED


ARTIST / BAND: UNITED
SONG (MP3): MADE FOR US
ALBUM: Slick
FILE UNDER: Indie / Rock / Alternative
LABEL: http://www.noisedeluxe.com/
INFO: United formed in 2002. This new band from Stockholm features a sound that is post-minimalistic and yet epic in nature with a line-up that includes 2 guitars, a bass, drums, and keyboards. Echoing the type of introspective desperation of the Manchester post-punk movement of the late 70s and early 80s, United performs songs that are loudly ethereal and yet accessible. While the band's musical influences ranging from Joy Division, the Psychedelic Furs to Echo & the Bunnymen and The Cure can be heard, United succeeds in delivering a unique musical experience and amazing live shows. British rockers Placebo heard the band's first demos following a friend's recommendation and helped United get on the map. As Placebo felt an immediate kinship with United, they invited the band to support them at several sold out shows during their 2003-2004 world tour. After some shows in Germany and France, the band is now working on his 2nd album.

ALBUM: Yearling's Bobtail
FILE UNDER: Indie / Folk Rock / Pop
LABEL: Dogies Almondine
INFO: The wait is over! Los Angeles folk pop messengers Bobtail Yearlings have finally emerged from hibernation, bringing their signature blend of brain twister lyrics, dual counterpoint guitars and furious muted mandolins. The 18-song cycle album Yearling's Bobtail represents the culmination of four years of writing and recording by singer and songwriter Bennett Lin.

ALBUM:
FILE UNDER: Post Hardcore / Alternative / Rock

INFO: Not much was heard from these boys lately. In the aftermath of their 2003 release Moleskine, SOMETREE had been in the centre of the music scenes public eye; after having played more than 300 Shows all over Europe they went into hiding for the last two years.

ROYCE


ARTIST / BAND: ROYCE
SONG (MP3): TUFF LOVE / EBBS AND FLOWS
ALBUM: TUFF LOVE
FILE UNDER: eclectic balance to hip hop experimentation, blazing rock-disco epics and soothing mellow pop tunes
LABEL: http://www.galapagos4.com/
INFO: Were it possible for a record to push itself off its’ belly and walk the earth, TUFF LOVE would be roaming alleys and dirt lots of Chicago on legs gilded in heartbreak. This is no chamber music album. TUFF LOVE is the undeniably infectious second full-length release from Royce.Ruthless rhythm and backyard beats weave between intuitive, heart tugging ballads. Subtle, alluring vocals sit atop warm, glowing bass and percussive tremors signature to Royce’s rumble and snap sound.

ALBUM: Be Still Please

In the mid-90’s Mac also formed Portastatic as an outlet for all the material he was writing that did not fit the Superchunk mold. Over the last 10-15 years, Superchunk has flourished as one of the most successful and influential bands on the college rock scene, Merge has grown into one of the most respected and successful independent labels around and Portastatic has developed into it’s own full-fledged artistic endeavor, releasing 6 full lengths and countless EPs, singles and compilation tracks.

JED AND LUCIA


ARTIST / BAND: JED AND LUCIA
SONG (MP3): WORLD ON FIRE
ALBUM: Candles in Daylight
FILE UNDER: Folk / Electronica / Acoustic
LABEL: Unfound Records
INFO: Jed and Lucia love the sound of vibrating strings stretched overwarped wooden boxes, resontating objects struck with meditative love,tuned circuits evolving from silence, and orchestras gently mangled tothe point of unrecognizability. These are the sounds that bring theirsongs to life.Jed and Lucia come from two distinctly different but complementarysongwriting traditions. Jed being from the Pacific Northwest andLucia hailing from Sweden, their collective voice is one of Seattleand Stockhom finding common musical ground. Playing host to thisexperiment is Southern California, where the naturally cold andrain-drenched angst of the two songwriters has been set out to drybeneath the relentless sun.The two can be found sitting on their porch in the old civil warstagecoach stop of Chatsworth Lake, hidden away in the mountains onthe far Northwestern border of Los Angeles without a streetlight orestablished property line in sight.

HUMA


ARTIST / BAND: HUMA
SONG (MP3): FEELS LIKE I’M WALKING
ALBUM: We Are Here For You
FILE UNDER: Indie / Electronica / Shoegaze
LABEL: cult-hero
INFO: huma was formed back in the cold harsh winter of 2003 by brian and jess, mostly as a means of defeating the northern jersey duldrum known as suburbia. originally an acoustic duo, they realized that sounds could be a lot more enjoyable if there were more to choose from, and keyboardist (also brian's sister) laura was added into the mix. quickly offsetting the 'american mall' scenery around them, lush atmospheres emerged as brian and jess honed their programming skills to create electronic blips and beats around laura's synthesizer tones... that brings us to the huma you have today. out of the suburbs and into the city of new brunswick where they are presently recording an album for cult-hero records, due to be released in the late spring of 2006. pulling sounds from their influences like broken social scene, lali puna, my bloody valentine, and neil young, huma creates a delicate blend of electro-pop and ambient folk. a sound that is very much their own.

THE ROSEWOOD THIEVES


ARTIST / BAND: THE ROSEWOOD THIEVES
SONG (MP3): LOS ANGELES
ALBUM: FROM THE DECKER HOUSE
FILE UNDER: Folk Rock / Blues / Country
LABEL: V2
INFO: There was no television, no internet, no phone and no food or water at the Decker house. The five-acre landscape had a small cattle farm on one side and tiny trailer homes on another. When The Rosewood Thieves weren't retiling the kitchen or clearing out old deer carcasses from the barn, they would gather in the living room each evening for five weeks to write and rehearse. Jordan says taking a break from the hustle and flow of New York City was exactly what they needed. They didnt seem to mind that the heat wasnt on most of the time and that the pipes were freezing nearly every other day. "The living room space was the best spot it had nice hardwood floors, a rather warm fireplace, and a small gray cat with half of a tail" says then neighbor now tour manager David Watson.

CALIFONE


ARTIST / BAND: CALIFONE
SONG (MP3): THE ORCHIDS
ALBUM: Roots & Crowns
FILE UNDER: Blues / Experimental / Folk
LABEL: Thrill Jockey Records
INFO: Roots and Crowns. “Uniting where you come from – your roots -- with what you strive to be or what you reinvent yourself to become -- crowns,” explains Califone’s Tim Rutili. “At the bottom of these songs are the memories and images you sift through in the process.”
Califone’s earliest roots lie in the band Red Red Meat, from whence came Califone’s founding members Tim Rutili and Ben Massarella and its longtime producer Brian Deck. The band’s first release was a self-titled EP on Flydaddy in 1998, followed later by the full-length debut, Roomsound, in 2001 (recently re-issued on Thrill Jockey) and eventually the band’s Thrill Jockey debut, Quicksand/Cradlesnakes in 2003. After touring for the release of Roomsound, Califone had little time off to take in the impact of the music they were creating. In three years, they recorded four albums (two instrumental, two song-based including Heron King Blues) and toured heavily in between with Wilco, Modest Mouse, Sea and Cake and others. They performed at All Tomorrow’s Parties curated by Sonic Youth and Rutili contributed to Isaac Brock’s Ugly Casanova project and Michael Krassner’s Boxhead Ensemble with Fred Lonberg-Holm and members of Smog and Dirty Three.

ARTIST / BAND: POLYPHONIC THE VERBOSE
SONG (MP3): MOVING ON
ALBUM: Abstract Data Ark
FILE UNDER: smoky-lounge-urban cool ... the future of hip-hop
LABEL: http://www.audio8.com/
INFO: Polyphonic the Verbose creates sound-forms blasted by futureshock: surreal politically charged cut and paste. Understood as code, the static-filled hip-hop, experimental electronic music and dubbed out reggae signify a maze, an attempt at unbelievably detailed sonic architecture. Polyphonic aka Will Freyman studied classical European piano as a child, and went on to perform jazz trombone, Indonesian gamelan music and medieval European choral music. He spearheaded a number of group recordings on Audio 8 including 2001's Dolce Stil Nuovo album Infrastructure, 2003's Certain Sound, and in 2004 Prostitute Karaoke. read more from the source...

INFO: Emily Neveu (vocals, guitar, piano) and Dave “Petti” Pettijohn (bass) never intended to form a band when they first began playing together, nor did they intend to make music for the masses.

LIKE A FOX


ARTIST / BAND: LIKE A FOX
SONG (MP3): ALMOST THERE
ALBUM: Like A Fox
FILE UNDER: Indie / Psychedelic / Other
LABEL: http://tappersize.com/
INFO: There is a place within modern music where a foundation of rock-solid songwriting can be married to progressive Technicolor production, resulting in both satisfaction for the soul and brilliant sonic candy for the ears. Like A Fox have crafted a debut batch of songs that deliver on that promising union.
Songwriter Jay Laughlin and engineer Dave Grubb spent the 1990s developing their vision in the critically acclaimed Philadephia/New Jersey area noise-pop band Lenola, releasing numerous full lengths and amassing an international word-of-mouth following for their unique sound that proved Pop music could be seriously damaged, yet retain its infectious hooks & charms.

SONG (MP3): KELLY
ALBUM: VAN SHE
FILE UNDER: 80’s post punk, funk and synth pop, 90’s grunge, French house, film scores, 70’s
LABEL: www.modularpeople.com
INFO: Formed in the early part of 05, Van She are a new band from Sydney fresh on ideas, fresher than Flavor Flav, fresh like coriander, fresher than the Fresh Prince. Unashamedly taking bits and bobs from 80’s post punk, funk and synth pop, 90’s grunge, French house, film scores, 70’s Krautrock and the latest collection of innovative artists like Tom Vek and M83, Van She are that unique beast that one was beginning to believe no longer existed – a band that takes all these influences from days gone but makes them sound unique, modern, and…. fresh. A lazy pastiche this isn’t.

Kandinski


ARTIST / BAND: Kandinski
SONG (MP3): Stralight
ALBUM: 2006 EP
FILE UNDER: Rock / Dub / Psychedelic
LABEL: none
INFO: "With irresitable chamber-pop choruses and baritone vocals that recall The Divine Comedy, meshed together with a dab Specials-brew ska and a guitarist whose Angus Young shapes and sheer technicality put other bands to shame, you end up with quite the killer cocktail." Review: Drowned In Sound
"Kandinski can hold the stage. That's a fact. The four piece cling to no timid airs as they thrash out their tunes to an eager audience. As yet unsigned, it's another pretty obvious fact that they'll be snatched up soon. A poppy rock outfit that mixes vocals with some pretty desirable guitar moves. Kandinski fuse dub, rock, blues and psychadelia and have gathered quite a following

As Tall As Lions



ARTIST / BAND: As Tall As Lions
SONG (MP3): Ghost of York
ALBUM: As Tall As Lions
FILE UNDER: Indie / Ambient / Rock
LABEL: Triple Crown
INFO: As Long Island, NY becomes a hotbed for the indie-rock, emo and pop-punk scenes, people find it intimidatingly easy to squeeze bands into one of these more classifiable genres. While the band, As Tall As Lions, is in fact from Long Island, they have developed a different musical approach combining the lush tones of ambient pop, the creativity of 70’s album rock, the subtle passion of the late 1980’s C-86 movement, and today’s "not so emo" writing style. In a way, you could say that the band hopes to define a new genre. Their music has a feel that can be considered interpretive. One moment may have you sitting in silence with several candles burning around you, and the next, climbing the walls to harshly chant the lyrics back at their peaking speakers.Guitarist Saen Fitzgerald formed the band in the spring of 2002. He asked his friends and former band members Daniel Nigro (vocals), and Clifford Sarcona (drums) to join as he further developed the ideas behind "ATAL." Good friend and fan of the band Brian Fortune later joined the group on guitar to help with the recording of their renowned EP "Blood and Aphorisms." The EP received a great response from fans and critics alike, including several magazine features and radio spins. When Brian Caesar (bass) joined in October of 2002, the band was finally complete.
