This band is a sort of folky alternative country band. I think thats a good way to describe them but I'm not very good at this. If more country music was like this I would enjoy it. The pedal steel guitar has such a melodic ring to it. I think that could be a big reason why I like this band.

This band is tight. Their name comes from the movie "The Squid and The Whale'" and that movies director Noah Baumbach. They are super into Wes Anderson just watch this video of them and you can tell. Their music is an indie folk rock style. I highly recommend this album.

This is Brooke Waggoner's new album "heal for the honey" She is one of the hipster Nashville type people but apparently her music is good. I haven't listened to much yet but It was recommended by Taylor Jones. She was also featured in Paste last month as one of the 25 new artists to know. If anyone reads this blog that I don't know go check out Taylor's photography at Taylorchristianjones.com

Electric President sounds like Postal Service meets The Books. Its new and I think this genre whatever it is called will continue to grow rapidly. Metal Fingers has some nice lyrics, I suggest looking them up while you listen to the song. Enjoy

This band is formed around one guy from Iceland. He is only 21 years old but has already opened up for fellow Icelanders Sigur Ros. It is very close to the same style of music. I guess there is something in the water up there that makes everyone enjoy really chill music. Its perfect for a soundtrack, and I would not be surprised if this band has something big coming its way in that department.

Olly Oxen Free is the third release from Mason Proper. They are an indie rock group from Michigan. Mason Proper rented an old wooden house to record this record. I always like it when bands decide to live together for a period of time to record. I feel that it always produces quality music on their part.

Hammerstrike is a new album from Lotus. They are a rock electronica progressive sort of band. There are some lyrics but for the most part it's nice instrumental music. Behind Midwest Storefronts is probably my favorite track.
