Here's my recommendations for the week (I don't normally listen to this much electronic-sounding stuff all the time, but this week...):
: My friend Jax recommended them to me a few days ago. Arcade Fire-esque sound, out of Austin. I'm enjoying what I'm hearing so far and am looking forward to new material.
: Electronic dance band from Australia, in the vein of The Faint, The Rapture, Moving Units, etc. Listen to "Are You The One" and "Steamworks", and then dance your ass off. Watch out for them to blow up soon, a la Pitchfork and HSB style.
This song has been stuck in my head all week:
. Listen to the song here
and watch part of the video here
. I'll have to say, the video is probably not safe for school or for work. Some of the best music you could have for a dance party in your living room, or in a club.
