Here are some new bands that I've been enjoying:
Do you like Arcade Fire? They remind me of a toned-down, folksy version.
Listen: Wide Eyes
Two-Door Cinema Club
Reminiscent of an early Phoenix, circa Alphabetical.
Listen: Cigarettes in the Theater
While I am no stranger to Julian C (was obsessed with the Strokes in high school), I am definitely digging his solo work. I also enjoy Albert Hammond Jr's (Strokes guitarist) solo album, too.
Listen: Out of the Blue
Also be sure to check out Hockey, The Walkmen, Avi Buffalo, Marina + the Diamonds and Miike Snow.
What are you listening to right now?
