Oh Those Sweet Female Vocals…

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!

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.”

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.

  1. I’ve never really heard the last two, but the first two are stalwarts of my music collection. I saw them both within the last few weeks. I’m going to have to check out these others now.

  2. when i was younger, i always love the tune of alternative music compared to pop music ~”~
