The Raveonettes- Dead Sound

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us
When I first heard the album "Chain Gang of Love" it sounded like innocence. Combined with a fuzzy minimal garage pop sound, it was candy. That album means just as much to me as "Is This It" and "Turn On The Bright Lights". Their last album "Pretty In Black" was nice but a little too sweet. "Lust Lust Lust" brings the raw fuzz with the right amount of sugar. I guess this is early favorite for best album 2008.

I know that you want the candy.

The Like Young- Dead Eyes

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

Really love these two. So adorable. So raw. So broken up like almost 2 years now. So sad.

Los Campesinos!- International Tweecore Underground

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us
The 2nd Most Punk-Rock Band In Britain

I bet you twenty pounds if you knew ten years ago how pretty you'd turn out then you'd never have gotten your ears pierced, but I never got my ears pierced and look how I turned out,and the last time that you tried listening to music, and reading fiction at the same time, you never finished the chapter, but you finished the song with your chin on your knees like you belong

and i never cared about Henry Rollins
Amelia Fletcher never meant anything to me
but the International Tweexcore Underground, will save us all

Getting the laptop fixed by a professional doesn't make me a pawn and
stamping harder on your FX pedal, won't make you feel any better any more
oh you said "we've gotta bite the hand that feeds" but I was sucking seductively on the fingertips of a civil servant, said "how you gonna bring the state down when you're propping it up? with daytime radio
and skimmed milk and soppy bows
just 'cause you're scared to be alone"

and I never cared about Ian MacKaye
Calvin Johnson never meant anything to me
but the International Tweecore Underground, will save us all

Ooh, this city is run by fucking pigs, and though you say you're my friend, you're not, you're one of them.
and i never cared about...whatever
Sarah Records never meant anything to mebut the International Tweexcore Underground, will save us all

Cut Copy- So Haunted

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

Another personal favorite of mine. This is the latest from these electronic pop stars that brought you the 2006 mega album "Bright Like Neon Love". We hear them seriously rocking out early on this before settling into a lush groove that tells us "This is real."

Voxtrot- Trouble

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

This really does sum up my exact feelings for this band.

"My love/hate relationship with Voxtrot continues. I love the fact that I love their songs. I hate the fact that their songs are so non-immediate. They require an investment (as do the best of things). My short-term attention spans sometimes misses out though and gets lazy. Fortunately I tend to come around."

Please trust me that the "investment" is well worth it. Some really imaginitive songwriting and touching themes that we all can relate to.
