Welcome back, welcome back. It's just been a few hours since my last post, but I am about to be internet-less for a little while, so I'm cramming a few more bands in real quick here. But you guys will be provided with ample time to absorb all of this new material (and one more big post tomorrow).
I'm a bit late on the uptake here, but I will still direct you all to Margot & the Nuclear So and Sos, on the off chance that you have also missed them. Hey, coulda, shoulda, woulda, right? I am impressed by these guys' ability to make really beautiful arrangements. And the singer's voice melds so perfectly with their indie-rock lackadaisical feel. And they have witty lyrics, to boot.
I'm a big Raveonettes fan. I like them for their male-female harmonies and all that sexy tremelo guitar that they use. They're uber slick, yeah? Well Scrabbel is like the Raveonettes if they had folk origins. Same male-female harmonies, but with this sort of Tilly and the Wall sing-along songwriting style.
Aw man, Bahai Cassette is bizarre, dude. Is it rap or is it like, kiddie indie-pop? These guys rap like they know they don't have much in the way of skillz (ironic spelling, okay?), so I don't know how to really ... interpret their music. But it's fun, if nothing else, and so therefore you should all listen to them!
Slow Hand MotÃ«m is also a strange band. They've released -- as far as I can tell -- all of their albums on the internet. With like artwork and all! And these are "good" albums, in that they sound like someone actually took time to make them. Not just some internet freebie. I cannot top the description of the band that accompanies their album, Explain the Swans to Swim, so I will just quote:
Slow Hand sounds like Donovan if he hung out with George Clinton and they smoked some weed and listened to Beat Happening.
And that's pretty accurate, I'd say. You can get another album of theirs here. Cool guys.
