I don’t know what it is, but those female vocals in indie and alternative music get to me. I think it’s such a great mesh. So, without further ado, some of my favorite bands and songs reviewed that fit into this genre:
I’ll admit, I just got my hands on this album after the local station gave it a thumbs up and it got some air time. I’m not disappointing either. Vocalist Emily Haines provides excellent singing to a great sound the band’s already got going. So, give their track a listen, and if you want more, pick up their latest album (and most mainstream of the three albums they have) Fantasies.
Metric-Help I’m Alive
Yeah Yeah Yeahs
Nothing new hear. If you haven’t heard of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs I think you should just stop reading. They’ve been all over the airwaves for a while (at least to what I listen to). You’ve probably heard their song “Gold Lion”, but they’ve got a new album out with a hit new single. Check out “Zero” from the album It’s Blitz!
Yeah Yeah Yeahs-Zero
Company of Thieves
Again, a band I’ve recently discovered. I haven’t been able to check out much of their music, but they’ve played local venues a couple of times and I’ve heard a little airplay for them. I like the sound (and vocals of course) so we’ll see how they turn out once I grab hold of their album Ordinary Riches. For now, here is their song “Oscar Wilde.”
Company of Thieves-Oscar Wilde
Land of Talk
I’ve already reviewed their album on edu[music]ation here so I wont go into detail on their music in this section. Just know they belong in this category. In case you needed a refresher, here is their song “Speak To Me Bones” from their album Applause Cheer Boo Hiss.
