On A Different Note-8

Golden Rings by Leisure Colony

We’re Treehouse Kids! by Blind Man’s Colour

Watching You Paint Your Nose by Dada Trash Collage

Hustle by Tuung

Marimba and Shit Drums by Moonface

I finally got into Sunset Rubdown recently after I heard that Johnny Depp listened to the band for inspiration for his role as the Mad Hatter in the new adaptation of Alice in Wonderland. The lead vocalist for Sunset Rubdown, Spencer Krug, recently released an EP under the name of Moonface. The EP is called Marimba and Shit Drums and it is made up of a roughly twenty minute track that relies highly on a marimba and the Krug’s unique voice.

Tin Man by Future Islands

You Know by Burnkane

On A Different Note-7

David by Yawn

If you think Yawn sound like Animal Collective, I agree. If you think that means Yawn is unoriginal and therefore is not worth listening to, I understand, but, I kind of have a weakness for anything that sounds enough like Animal Collective to be compared to them and I like “David” and “Kind of Guy” from Yawn’s new EP. You can download the EP here for the low, low price of free. I think it’s worth the low, low price of free.

Vanity by Celestial Bodies

This music video involves people’s skin being peeled away from their face, but it’s not as gory as it sounds.

Excuses by The Morning Benders

This song is about love making.

Bright Orange Air by Inlets

This song sounds like a Grizzly Bear song. It sounds like the old Yellow House Grizzly Bear.

Lady Linda by Mux Mool

The above picture is the artwork for Mux Mool’s upcoming album, Mux Mool sounds like an 8-bit version of Nosaj Thing with rappers and pirates. To hype the release of his upcoming album, Mux Mool is giving away his Viking Funeral EP for the low, low price of free (Lookey there I gave you two new EP’s in this post, aren’t I nice.).

On A Different Note-6

Indo Shadow by Robedor

French Jeans by MVSEVM

Keeper by Pool Holograph

Holy Holy Holy Moses by Alec Ounsworth

This song is from the solo album of the vocalist from Clap Your Hands Say Yeah!.

Bumpback-V-Raven by Niyi

This is just a fun partyin’ song.

Zef Side by Die Antwoord

I found out about this band this week, but I guess they have been around for a little while. I thought they were pretty interesting. They are African white trash rappers. Their website is well done. If you check it, I will worn you about the strange deformed man.

On A Different Note-5

Catamaran by Candy Claws

I like the way this song reverberates to make it feel like you are underwater.

Be Cool by Golden Ages

Castles in the Snow by Twin Shadow

Slept Away by Spirit Spine

Spirit Spine is a 19 year who makes music that sounds like Panda Bear on his computer.

The Town Made out of Clouds by MusSck

On A Different Note-4

Here are some cool songs I found this week:

Whiplash by Sunglasses

Yellow Wings by Keepaway

tough guys by Jeans Wilder

Boy From School (Hot Chip Cover) by Grizzly Bear

Running From the Cops by Phantogram

Light Works by Acid Girls

Acid Girls has another pretty cool music video for their song, The Numbers Song.

Lifted by Lemonade

Our Girls by Baby Birds Don’t Drink Milk

Candy Season by Librarians

On A Different Note-3

Chocolate Makes You Happy by Xiu Xiu on hype machine from Punkreas.org
The upcoming Xiu Xiu album is not their best. My favorite song on it is The Fabrizio Palumbo Retaliation, I could not find a link for that, but this one’s pretty good too.

Stylo by Gorillaz

A new single for the upcoming Plastic Beach album is now on the internets. I’m not too crazy about it at all. It makes me less excited about the new album.

Lewis Takes Action, Lewis Takes His Shirt Off by Owen Pallett

Last year, Owen Pallett retired his old name, Final Fantasy. He took the name in tribute to the Square Enix game franchise.  I feel that this album is his best yet, it feels a lot more grand and over-the-top.

Madder Red by Yeasayer

I’m thinking that Yeasayer’s album Odd Blood may end up being somewhat high on my favorite albums of 2010 list. The vocals at the beginning of this song keep getting stuck in my head.

I Feel Better by Hot Chip on hypemachine from citiesoftheplain.net

The new Hot Chip album coming out this February, sounds a little more pop-y then their other albums. I Feel Better, is just a feel good song. I feel better when I listen to it (See what I did there? Okay, I know, lame,  but I did it, okay? Get over it.). Hot Chip has also released the music video for the album title track, “One Life Stand”:

No One Does It Like You by Department of Eagles (video below)

I saw this music video on a blog and I thought it sounded so much like Grizzly Bear. Well, that’s because Department of Eagles is a duo made up of Daniel Rossen from Grizzly Bear and his friend, Fred Nicolaus. They started in 2000, so this may be old news to some of you, but I have just heard of them, so don’t judge me. This music video came out last year though. It’s interesting, and kind of eerie.

On A Different Note-2

Space Odyssey-MIA

MIA recently released this song on her twitter. Judging by this song, MIA’s next album should by quite different then Arular and Kala. It does sound a lot more Animal Collective, but I like that.

Tunnels by FUR

This song is like a psychedelic hip hop party jam. This song is from FUR’s album, Witches, which is being released February 23rd of this year.

Chase the Tear by Portishead

This is a song the Portishead released for the charity group Amnesty. I really like their album, Third and it looks like they might have a new album coming this year.

Vulture by Micachu via http://www.foeweel.com/

This week, I found this band called Micachu. They have unique vocals and a unique use of electronic, percussion, and stringed instruments.

White Sky by Vampire Weekend via Poptartssucktoasted

Vampire Weekend released their sophmore album last week, and this is probably my favorite song off of it.
