Dr. Dog

Dr. Dog is a psychedelic rock band from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Each member of the band has a nickname, as do the friends of the band. Their version of pop-rock is reminiscent of the 1960s, a time period they draw a lot of their inspiration from. You can catch them tonight at Higher Ground in Burlington, VT. Tickets and info here.

Cold War Kids

The Cold War Kids is an indie rock band straight out of Long Beach California that released it’s third studio album Mine is Yours today.   The band worked with producer Jacquire King, who is responsible for albums by Modest Mouse, Kings of Leon, and a few others.  Cold War Kids combines punk with soul music to create a great sound.

Louder than Ever

This song is a great sample of the new album.  The catchy course echoed in my head long after my first listen, and I was completely okay with it.

Cake

You all know who they are.  The alternative rock band out of California with half-spoken lyrics is at it again with a new album released yesterday called “Showroom of Compassion.”  This is the band’s first studio release since 2004 and is as unique as ever.  Sticking to their famous style Cake uses a variety of instruments, engaging lyrics, and basically just has as much fun as they always have.

Sick of You

Sick of You” is no surprise to traditional Cake fans.  A catchy tune filled with great guitar and bass lines, trumpets, and keyboards.   The lyrics grab your attention as they are nearly spoken as always, creating a pleasant contrast with the hook.  Classic Cake.

How do you think this song compares to the beloved Cake of the 90s?

Chiddy Bang and K os: Cool New Songs

We cannot legally give you links to download these songs. However, if your worth your weight, there are plenty of places to get these for free, but if you really like them, buy them off iTunes.

The Love Song —K os

I guess Canada is good for something, this rapper/producer out of Toronto uses a variety of genres from rap to reggae to convey his lyrically based music.  K os (pronounced chaos) focuses on a positive message and frequently criticizes mainstream hip hop for being too centered on money and violence.
Here We Go —Chiddy Bang
These rising stars from Philly rely on sampling and unique electronic based instrumentals provided by Noah “Xaphoon Jones” Beresin coupled with quick and clever wordplay from Chidera “Chiddy” Anamege.  The two met at Drexel University and have been jamming ever since.  Check out “Chiddy Bang: The Preview” for more.
