Japandroids: The House That Heaven Built
Sleigh Bells: Comeback Kid
Zedd: Clarity (Acoustic Mix)
Wavves: Demon to Lean On
Neutral Milk Hotel: In The Aeroplane Over The Sea
Just as a brief follow up, Japandroids new album Celebration Rock was named the #1 album of 2012 by Spin magazine. Sleigh Bells consists of just two people, and seems to be a rock band that may have a slight cross over into the EDM crowd with the drum machine and samples that they use along with the guitar and vocals. Zedd is most likely the next big DJ, coming off a performance of the song above on David Letterman. I'll be seeing Zedd with in Boston a week from tonight with two of my best friends, which will most likely be an awesome time. Wavves has had a few minor hits and has been shown some love from MTV which is kind of rare these days. The song 'Demon to Lean On' is their newest single, coming from an album that comes out March 26th. They will be playing in Boston in April and I would highly recommend seeing them live if you liked the song I posted. Neutral Milk Hotel hasn't done much since 1998 when their album In The Aeroplane Over The Sea came out, but this whole album is beautiful. I saw the frontman/mastermind of NMH play at Lupo's two nights ago, and to say that it was an incredible show would be an understatment. Some of the songs that he (Jeff Mangum) played were beautiful, which is a rare term to use these days when it comes to music. I have been to numerous concerts over the past 10 years, and Mangum may be the best sounding musician that I have heard live. Impressive for just one guy and a couple of guitars.
I hope you guys enjoyed some of the songs here. Again, I do not mean to push this music upon anyone, but I just believe in these bands and felt that I should share them with you guys. Please, feel free to comment your thoughts/opinions/whatever in the comment section below. I'd love to hear what you guys think about this stuff.
