From my experience, you can never go wrong with Bloc Party. Any and all Bloc Party. "Mercury" or "Ares" in particular. Sorry couldn't recommend anything new. New music scares me.
Francis and the lights - Dude is opening up from drake on his new tour and has been destroying NYC for the past 2 years. It's warrented several drives from Philly jus tto check him out. (francisandthelights.com)Toro y moi (myspace.com/toroymoi)Savior Adore (myspace.com/savoiradore)
Loving Toro y Moi.
the new Beach House album is pretty amazing.
The Bamboos have been tearing up my iPod lately. Check out their album '4.'http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GKVAJxCrR7k
The Twelves or Classixx or Duck Sauce.
The xx or Transferance by Spoon - not sure your tastes.
surfer blood! their whole album. "swim" is my favorite.
He's been plugging the xx for a while now. I still haven't warmed to the new Spoon, but I keep going back to it to give it another chance. I'll probably end up "discovering" it six months after the fact like I do with every album Interpol releases. But it's the first Spoon album that hasn't grabbed me right away. By the way, for another Austin band that sound like Spoon Jr. (with a touch of Elliott Smith), check out Wiretree.
Second Michael's suggestion. It's been a while since the last new guitar band that didn't sound painfully self-aware of their retro-ness. Surfer Blood just play their instruments well.
SF asking me for music recommendations? what is this, Bizzaro World?just finished my new record. not your kind of thing at all, despite multiple Depeche Mode references... not that that will stop me from linking to it:http://soundcloud.com/noddables
If you like the Strokes, you might like The Airborne Toxic Event, esp. their song Does This Mean You're Moving on? Good stuff, imo.
Check out Broken Bells. its a group with danger mouse and the singer from the shins
"this town needs guns" or "we were promised jetpacks"their names give them a bad first impression, but they are truly great up and coming bands.
May I suggest something completely different?I love 60 & 70's Jamaican ska & reggae. Listen to some Maytals, Desmond Dekker, old Bob Marley & The Wailers, Lee 'Scratch' Perry, Justin Hinds & the Dominoes, Prince Buster, the Skatalites, The Crystalites, Laurel Aitken, Jackie Opel, King Stitt, The Ethiopians, The Paragons, etc.Look for Trojan (Records) Box Sets on iTunes for a start.
Julian Casablancas from the Stroke's solo album is damn fine
Best Coast or No Age.
Howdy from snowy Dallas! I think you'll like this:We Were Promised Jetpacks "Roll up your Sleeves"http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TUFBl9Ouk4E&feature=player_embedded
