Despite several lineup changes, they’ve been playing music throughout the U.S. in the decade that’s followed their beginning.

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.

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.

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.

Mumford & Sons

These guys are a great folk rock band from London that successfully combines the styles of folk and indie rock into a great mix.  Their sound is slowed down and relaxing while the lyrics have wonderful meaning.

Little Lion Man

This is their best known song and displays the raspy voice of the lead singer Marcus Mumford with the great folk rock sound of the band.  The lyrics of the song’s course cause a great contrast with the rest of the song and make you think about the song’s content.

Roll Away Your Stone

This song is a little more laid back and has a feel for a summer’s day at the beach. The folk style of the band shines through strongest in this tune as banjo and mandolin become prominent.
