The Damnwells

The Damnwells are an indie band that originated in Brooklyn, New York in 2001. Despite several lineup changes, they’ve been playing music throughout the U.S. in the decade that’s followed their beginning. The songs below have a melancholy, yet soulful mix that will really make you think if you’ll just give them a listen.

Sleigh Bells

Sleigh Bells is composed of an American duo based out of Brooklyn, New York. They formed in 2008 and released their debut album, Treats, in May of 2010 and featured an eclectic mix of their work. Their blend of noise pop is great for those times when you just feel like you want to rage or even when you just need to something to drown out those crazy thoughts.

Destroyer

Destroyer’s new album Kaputt sounds like what would happen if you turned to a jazz radio station while listening to indie rock at the same time.  Throw in some synths reminiscent of the 80’s and the fusion is complete.  Dan Bejar, the man behind the scenes, laces lyrics that sometimes seem as eclectic as the instrument choices.  If you’re interested in a sound most people probably haven’t cared to try then check out this album.

Kaputt

Kaputt is at the forefront of the album and is a hazy combination of jazz and an 80’s feel that meshes surprisingly well.  The words “chasing cocaine” sum up the song in a nutshell but in a melodic and soothing feel.

Chinatown

This song is even more soothing than Kaputt.  The smooth synths and acoustic guitar mold together perfectly with Bejar’s drowsy voice.  The horn riffs in the background make the song feel rich and full while all the while remaining completely relaxed.

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?
