1. department of eagles – archive 2003-2006

Department of Eagles is a small two piece band consisting of Fred Nicolaus and Daniel Rossen (Grizzly Bear). I first heard of them when their song ‘In Ear Park’ was played on Season 3 of Skins. I liked the song instantly and once I had found out who preformed it I was all over DOE like a rash. In my opinion Grizzly Bear always had a better feel and sound especially with their latest album Veckatimest but that’s not to say that Archive 2003-2006 doesn’t hold it’s own ground. The album is good from start to finish with stand out tracks being ‘While We’re Young’ and ‘Brightest Minds’.

2. two door cinema club – tourist history

Two Door Cinema Club is a fun electro pop band from Northern Ireland. This is a band that I have recently got into. I wouldn’t go as far as to say they will become a long lasting favourite band of mine but the songs are catchy enough to keep me happy for awhile. They remind me of a mix between Friendly Fires and Klaxons (kind of). A couple of good singles are ‘I Can Talk’ and ‘Undercover Martyn’.

3. pavement – brighten the corners

Pavement are an indie rock band from the nineties which recently re-grouped to do a reunion. Although they experienced only moderate commercial success, they achieved a significant cult following, and their music has been a major influence on many bands of the late 1990s and beyond. I have only recently discovered Pavement with their re-releases. Pavement are the type of band that can be played anywhere, they have songs that could be accepted in any social situation. Although I am still listening through the albums, my favorite so far is Brighten The Corners.

4. rilo kiley – more adventurous

A friend of mine recently took off to America for a holiday but before he did he mentioned a band that was on repeat on his iPod, that band was Rilo Kiley. I decided to follow up his suggestion and am currently cycling through a couple of their albums, More Adventurous and Under the Blacklight. Although both albums are good I find myself going back to More Adventurous a lot more than Under the Blacklight. A couple of good tracks are ‘Portions for Foxes’ and ‘It’s a Hit’.

honorable mention
1. sigur rós – takk…

For me, Sigur rós has been one of those bands that I knew of but never found the time to listen to and now regret every minute that I didn’t. They are amazing, Jónsi (he has just released a solo album named Go – also brilliant) has a beautiful voice that carries the songs. I don’t know what else to say about them, they make music that’s good, very good. Listen to them, now.
