Rocker's Delight

Allow me to introduce you to The Zutons! This English indie rock band from Liverpool hit it big with the release of "Valerie" off of their 2006 "Tired of Hanging Around" album. A good fix for when your itching for some rock n roll!

The Zutons - Valerie

What about The Black Keys?
I've heard a lot of good things about this rock duo, but never put an effort to give them a shot.
Unfortunately, I do not know much about their older music, but I do know that their new album "Brothers" is a great listen.
Give the album a listen. Satisfaction guaranteed!

The Black Keys - Tighten Up

Couples Indie Playlist

So the holidays are coming soon and so is the cold weather!
All you men out there, hold your women closely if you don't want to spend the cold winter season alone. Here are a list of songs for you love birds. Maybe you can even learn a few and perform for your spouse? Then surely you will see a lot of happy endings to your winter nights :) For those ridin solo, hit me up on them cold winter nights and maybe we can share a bowl of popcorn, study biology, or explore some nearby wooded areas.

Bright Eyes - First Day of my Life
Old song.... but I just discovered it a few months ago.

Katie Melua's - Just Like Heaven
If you haven't heard the original by The Cure, you should also check it out. Often times we are reluctant to give praise for artists who attempt to cover such brilliant songs but I think she did an amazing job with her sweet voice and I have no remorse in giving up a few minutes of my life to listen to this. She's captivated me and I'm on an adventure to discover more about her music. Men.... don't show the video to your lady if you've got a jealous girlfriend!

Band Of Horses - No Ones Gonna Love You More Than I Do
This song is kinda old, but i've been listening to it for a few years and like to listen every once in a while.
Check out the sweat on his beard, he definitely really loves someone.

A little bit of MGMT and The Cults!

I'm not even sure if you can still consider these guys Indie after the exposure they got from their last album and it doesn't help that they are signed to Columbia Records, but I like em and they're not Justin Bieber, so I consider them Indie and wanted to share their music. Also, they are a hipster's delight and entertain many individuals who live an unconventional "indie" lifestyle.
I can't say that I'm completely sold on their new album just yet, but I do know that I love "Congratulations".

MGMT - Congratulations

Summer is not over yet! Here's a fun little summer track that's good for those warm and sunny beach days! This is not their official music video. An individual who goes by the name of Halveraptor on Youtube made it. I think he did an excellent job.

The Cults - Outside
