Indie Music Filter’s Fave New Artists Of 2010: Part Two

fave new 2010

Continued frompart 1, here’s a couple more bands deserving of your attention.

freedom or death

Freedom or Death. Earmilk said it best: “Its like Bon Iver car pooled with the Junior Boys on the way to the Massive Attack concert but they got snowed in.” This one below reminds me of TVOTR.

04 – Freedom Or Death – This Crowded Room by Freedom Or Death

evening hymns

Evening Hymns. Now technically their album Spirit Guides was out in 2009, but I didn’t get my hands on it until sometime in this past year. I attended a great benefit concert at the Koerner Halland Orono, Ontario’s Evening Hymns performed a few of their songs. Totally blown away. For fans of Joel Plaskett and Hayden.

-Villagers. Again, like above, Villagers seemed to be pretty active before 2010 but I wasn’t aware. Big fan of this Irish band led by Conor O’Brien, not that Conor.

sun airway

-Sun Airway. If you follow my site, you’ll know I’ve posted just about everything this young Philly band has done in 2010. First listens were in “Put The Days Away”, then my obsession became “Waiting On You” (via Aux and Indie Music Filter Volume 7).

Waiting on You by Sun Airway

darwin deez

Darwin Deez. Master of guitar tone, headbands, clever lyrics and music videos. Check out “Bad Day”, an homage to wishing your enemies bad luck.

hungry kids of hungary

Hungry Kids of Hungary. Brisbane four-piece with a penchant for writing really catchy songs. Recommended if you’re a fan of the Shins, Cold War Kids and especially Vampire Weekend. Here’s “Wristwatch”, another track that appeared on Indie Music Filter Volume 7.


MNDR. Aka electronic musician Amanda Warner, go and hear her killer song “I Go Away“.
