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