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.

Blue Scholars

Blue Scholars is a rap due based out of Seattle that focuses on lyrics that concentrate on social issues.  Listening to their songs brings you straight to the street corners and creates an aura of socially driven lyrics over the gaudy mainstream of hip hop.  This music inspires contemplation perfect for a Sunday afternoon.

Lumiere

This song slowly grows throughout the duration to create a captivating feeling to compliment the great lyrics.

Byani

Byani has a mellow tune and the lyrics are all about social situations.  The song has some blues influence and adds to the whole flavor of the voice of the lyrics.

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?

The Black Keys

The Black Keys have been around since 2001 and just released their sixth studio album Brothers recently and performed on SNL last weekend.  Known for their blues rock style, the duo has a grounded garage rock sound that is easy and fun to listen to.  Grab some dark shades, a bass guitar, and you’ll find where these guys are coming from.

Next Girl

The strong blues background makes itself known in this track.  Simple meaningful lyrics over a hard bass line and drums is all you really need.

Tighten Up

Tighten Up is the most prominent single of the new album and remains centered in the blues roots of the band. This song has everything including catchy guitar riffs and organ accompaniment carried this song to the top.

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.
