1. “His Story” by Not Ok – Some true punk music! Yet another Australian punk band that I feel in love with. This song will kick your ass and make you wonder just what Christopher Columbus did…listen to the spoken breakdown, I guess it’s the bridge. Take it or leave it, what do you think?
2. “Set The World On Fire!” by HELL&LULA – Such an awesome beat! Is it rock? Techno? Electro? I don’t care, this is a great genre spanning song. Here’s a tip…Pop out our MySpace Playlist for more continuous listening and less clicking.
3. “No Medication” by Washington Square Park – NEW BAND ALERT! Okay, drop everything because there’s a new punk band coming out of NJ that deserves your attention! Check out “No Medication”, this song got me hooked. Coming soon- WSP live show review and a few words with front man Max Rauch and guitarist Keith Williams.
4. “Texas Tea” by Young the Giant – This band used to be called The Jakes, proving that the name of your band has nothing to do with your music. “Texas Tea” is a catchy pop hook with melodies that paint a vocal masterpiece. Have a listen…
5. “I Don’t Mind” by Polly Mackey & the Pleasure Principle – I fell in love with Polly’s deep and rich vocals a long time ago, this is one of my favorite songs by the group. This indie pop/rock band from the UK is a group to keep an eye on.
6. “Early Warnings” by Foreign Born – I’ve been talking about this band a lot lately, but how could I not? It’s soothing and memorable all in one, the guitars really make this song come alive. I love it.
7. “Embers and Ashes” by The Static Cult – This band needs to come to the USA ASAP! They sound like next Bad Religion/Rise Against. Bottom line, they rock! This is one of my favorite songs, also check out “Hold Tight Hope.”
8. “Crawl Like A Dog (feat. Mark Lanegan) by Creature With The Atom Brain – I’m not really sure why I like this song, but I do. Maybe you will too. Definitely some similarities to Rob Zombie relaxed vocals.
9. “Tunnelvision” by Here We Go Magic – I’m hooked in the first five seconds of this song. I love this indie/folk sound, AMAZING! I hope this band is playing the Siren Festival this year, hailing from Brooklyn, NY, I see no reason they wouldn’t be invited to play, but let this be the first ask.
10. “Why Didn’t You Get A Haircut?” by Math the Band – I don’t care why you didn’t get a hair cut, but I do care about how much fun I’m having while listening to this song. I could imagine myself doing a speedy robot dance to this song, lots of jumping is also included. Anyway, less about my dance skills and more about Math the Band. They just started a tour with MC CHRIS, immediately after their performances at Bamboozle. Hope you can catch a show, I’ll be at Maxwell’s in Hoboken for the June 30th date if you wanted to buy me a drink for introducing you to this killer duo. Maybe we can share a bowl of Candy Cereal with Math the Band, check out this scrumdiddlyumptious video.
11. “Shake It Loose” by The Kicks – I saw The Kicks in NYC last week and was instantly blown away by this talented Nashville band. This band does not fit into any one genre, which is why I featured two of their songs on this playlist. “Shake It Loose” has driving guitar riffs that make you want to move. I suggest catching a live show soon, some of their guitar solos are sick!
12. “Good Morning” by The Kicks – When I heard this song live, I though “Instant radio hit”. This is one of their slower jams, but still packed with power. It gave me chills when I heard it live, its vocal beauty is gorgeous. I love harmonies that bounce off the walls with resonance. TNT is impressed.
