Back to Business...

Without music life would be a mistake. ~Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche

Back after a ridiculously long hiatus due to work, uni, life, the universe, everything...and me forgetting about this blog pretty much! Anyhoo, straight back into it all!

Firstly, I want to promote a band called Black Kids. They are an American indie rock band who have released an awesome EP called 'Wizard of Ahhhs' and supported various bands, gaining some critical acclaim in various media outlets. They are on various festival bills this summer to try and catch them if you are out and about this year!
Check out their debut single, the incredibly delightful 'I'm Not Gonna Teach Your Boyfriend How To Dance With You'.

Also, a band that have already had a fair bit of coverage and are on the way up. MGMT blend electronica with synths and indie rock riffs to create fantastically engaging songs. Their first album 'Oracular Spectacular' was out very recently and should be on your buy list!
The opening track 'Time to Pretend' sounds like it came from musicians designed by a computer, straight out of a Wierd Science situation! Pure synth genius!

Finally, a couple of mentions to well known musicians who have new stuff coming out!

Firstly, theres the lovely Mystery Jets, who always get me dancing whenever I have witnessed a live show. They have a new single called 'Young Love' featuring my celebrity love Laura Marling, whom I have championed in an earlier post. It is a lovely jubbly tale of, well, young love!

Mystery Jets Myspace - Listen to 'Young Love'!

Lastly, We Are Scientists have a new track out as well. It is called 'After Hours' and is a charming track with cute lyrics and a cute catchy riff that gets riveted in your head after a couple of listens.
