NotBlueAtAll’s TFIF Music Countdown: 5 Bands You Don’t Know


I’ve slacked on the music countdown front and I apologize, for realz! I had family in town for two weeks and I’m still working on getting my cafe opened so it’s been a bit nuts. Thank you for understanding and for being so patient and you know what? That rocks! But please, feel free to bitch at me if you feel neglected, I get it! =0)

So this week’s countdown is “5 Bands You Don’t Know” and I’m hoping that you haven’t heard of any of them. Although if you’re into music and reading this blog I’m sure you’re in the know and reading other stuff, too. So if you have heard of them let me know. Also, if I’ve missed someone you think is rad and “unknown” please COMMENT!!!

(In no particular order)

1.) Los Campesinos: I love the song “Death To Los Campesinos”! This band if from Wales and they’re just super cool and fun! I know they’ve gotten some play on alternative stations and channels, but not much and I just dig their whole vibe. Very fun and funky…like me!
                                                                                                                                             Hold On Now, Youngster – Los C…

2.) White Shoes & The Couples Company: Okay, I can’t claim to have “found” them on my own. “Sergio’s White Hot Top 5” on Current TV’s “Infomania” is a huge source of inspiration and complete and utter awesomeness for me. Seriously? Check it out!  But this band is hecka cool! Although I honestly don’t know a thing about them. I just dig their tunes!
                                                                                                                                   White Shoes & The Couples Comp…

3.) Mando Dai: This band is from Sweden and I love their style! Great percussion, good vocals and a solid sound! I got the EP on iTunes totally serendipitously, but I have to have “Spit On Your Love” close at hand for when I need to rock the fuck out!
                                                                                                                                        The Wildfire EP – Mando Diao

4.) Mulatu Astatke: I first heard sogs from them on the “Broken Flowers” soundtrack and really liked ’em. (What a fab soundtrack, too! By the way!) Very chill but a cool funky snakey sort of sound. I love it! This music makes you feel like you’re in a movie or living out some fantasy.
                                                                                                                                        Broken Flowers – Various Artis…

5.) The Pierces: Snarky, witty, poppy, fun, but also easy on the ears! I won’t lie though, their album cover caught my eye before their music did. So what?! I bought it and I love it! I try to include it in mixes to surprise people, too.        They’re just a good band to mix things up, ya know?
                                                                                                                              Thirteen Tales Of Love And Rev…

So…what do ya think? Did I pick something you already heard of? Have you never heard of any of these bands? Do they rock? Do they suck? TELL ME WHAT YOU THINK! Let’s talk shop and see what we’ve got…in common! =0)
