Artist Song Album Label Comments New Request Comp
Goldfrapp Number 1 Remix by Alan Braze & Fred Falke Number 1 mute Some of the songs on Felt Mountain required as many as 40 musicians to play so they were like 'downsizing time' Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds weren't going to deal with that, apparently.
Siouxsie and the Banshees Suburban Relapse The Peel Sessions Strange Fruit Recorded live during John Peel's radio show on BBC and then played for ten years straight on Margaret Cho's turntable.
Spoon I Summon You Gimme Fiction Merge This album was 44 on the billboard charts and #1 on the billboard independent album charts in 2005.

Bonde do Role Solta O Frango Bitchee Bitchee Ya Ya Remix Marina Gasolina Domino International music scout Diplo found these guys on Myspace. Myspace. Have I just given every terrible garage band hope? *
MGMT Kids Oracular Spectacular Columbia "We redid a lot of our songs that sounded too polished... Dave (producer David Fridmann) ended up running the tracks through this thing that crushed them and made them sound really gross again. They're a lot better now." - Ben Goldwasser in Rolling Stone. *

The Elected I'll Be Your Man Sun, Sun, Sun Sub Pop During their shows these guys wear gas masks. Well, they're from Los Angeles.
Fujiya and Miyagi Collarbone Transparent Things DD+BC They are named after a character in the karate kid. Officially making them the second coolest band ever. Hot on the heels of the Chuck Norris Experiment.
The Elected Waves Me First Sub Pop They also use pedal controlled lights and voice distorting equipment. They sound a little tame for that, but wow.
Muscles Hey Muscles I Love You Guna Babes Lemonade Modular Australian electronica. That was really unexpected. *
Black Mountain Evil Ways In the Future Jagjuguwar Black Mountain is the front line band for Black Mountain Army, a collective of musicians, artists and friends in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. *
The Pinkz USA The Pinkz Radio Beat That's one garage I wouldn't mind jamming out in.
The Faint the passives Blank Wave Arcade Saddle Creek In 2005 the Faint announced they were going to leave their previous recording space and trade up. Ok, fine. But then I found out that their old recording space was an abandoned warehouse they called The Orifice. The enormity of the announcement is suddenly apparent.
The Foxymorons Pistol By Your Side Hesitation Eyes Heart Stroke These guys did a long distance collaboration. Clearly this is lucrative judging from these guys and the Postal Service. Someone call and give me more examples.
The Faint Some Incriminating Photographs Media Saddle Creek They're from Omaha!
The Decemberists O Valencia The Crane Wife Capitol This is when they signed with a major label and... it rhymes with bold kraut.
Bishop Allen The News from your Bed The Broken String Dead Oceans Jauntier than I've heard. To great effect. *
