Bands that you should listen to

I’m not a record exec, a talent agent, or a cheesy tv reality show host but I think I have a pretty good ear for musical talent. It’s pretty simple really: interesting lyrics, good voice and the ability to create good background sound. Easy peasy.

So why do people waste their time listening to Faber Drive instead of some of these talented musicians/bands

The Middle East
Mark my words, these guys will blow up. They are way too talented and creative not to. An Australian band that uses most instruments imagineable and has a country meets Arcade Fire sort of sound. Get their album The Recordings of the Middle East Songs you should listen to: Blood, The Darkest Side, Hunger Song

The National
Talented rock band that is starting to get attention everywhere they go. Their lead singer’s deep, melodic voice sucks you in and refuses to spit you out as it rythmically yet clumsily leads you through his lyrics. Get their album High Violet Songs to listen too: Fake Empire, Blood Buzz Ohio, I’m Afraid of Everyone

Band of Skulls
Wicked, hard hitting british rock that features some great back and forth vocals between the male and female vocalists. Get their album Baby Darling Doll Face Honey Songs to listen to: I know what I am, Light of the Morning, Patterns
