Track of the Day: Florence And The Machine ‘Kiss With A Fist’

Another great band from the other side of the pond…Florence and Machine is relatively young for a band, 2007, but this song is fun indie pop, high energy, and a great song to make fun of the troubles you have with your significant o.  Look for their new album  in July. She sounds a hell of a lot like Chrissie Hynde of the Pretenders. Also, Florence is pretty hot.  You can’t beat that.


Track of the Day: Phoenix ‘Lisztomania’

Phoenix has been around since 2000, and this French pop alternative band shows no signs of stopping.  Their new album, Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix, is filled with light rock/pop wonderment.  Their latest single, ‘Lisztomania’ could certainly fit in an iPod commercial.  Viva La France!

Today’s Track: Black Moth Super Rainbow ‘Born On A Day The Sun Didn’t Rise’

Ok, if anything listen to this track because of the band name.  I know that is the reason I did! This band has finally fulfilled my quest for another band like Air, producing a product reminiscent of their masterpiece ‘The Virgin Suicides.’  It’s airy, yet solid.  This track comes from the band’s new album, ‘Eating Us.’  Black Moth has been around for over a decade, but taking on different monikers including Satanstompingcaterpillars, Tobacco, Power Pill Fist and Allegany White Fish.  This band from Pittsburgh played SXSW this year, and is definitely making a break.

Today’s Track: T.I. and Rihanna ‘Live Your Life’

In honor of T.I. reporting to prison…. ♫

Today’s Track: The Hold Steady: ‘Stuck Between Stations’

This track is a few years older, but The Hold Steady are a band from Brooklyn, who put a modern spin on sounds that might remind you of Bruce Springsteen or AC/DC.  Check them out for a real rock sound.

Today’s Track: MSTRKRFT ft. John Legend ‘Heartbreaker’

MSTRKRFT, out of Toronto, has remixed all of the latest, hottest artists including the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, The Gossip, Metric, All Saints, Jesse McCartney, etc.  They also work hard to produce their own dance-worthy albums, and their latest ‘Fist of God’ collaborates with many young talents including the smooth, John Legend.

From ‘Twilight‘, have loved this band for the past 4 years…glad they are making it! ♫

Today’s Track: Tegan and Sara ‘The Con’

Awaiting a new album, but this female duo is really talented and catchy. RIYL The Sounds, The Ting Tings

Track of the Day: Morningwood ‘Jetsetter’

Awesome Friday song! RIYL Yeah Yeah Yeahs. Awaiting their new album. To top it off, a female lead singer who encourages the audience to strip?  Rock on. ♫
