Stern Remix Angus & Julia Stone {0}

Wow. This is one of the most poignant and wistfully beautiful pieces of music I’ve heard in a very long time.

ANGUS & JULIA STONE – BIG JET PLANE (STERN* REMIX)

Reminds me of The Twelves’ 2009 remix of “Blue Skies” by Noah & The Whale. So timeless.

Introducing: WALK THE MOON

Introducing: WALK THE MOON {0}

Cincinnati-based four-piece Walk the Moon create loud, sweat-soaked indie rock anthems with perfectly crafted sing-a-long choruses. The band formed out of a love for creative pop songs, exuberant live performances, and, presumably, Michael Jackson. These dudes are all about having fun, and you really gain a sense of their zest-for-life-attitude on first single — and indie.mix.40 standout — “Anna Sun.”

Back in 2008, Walk the Moon’s debut EP, The Anthem, stirred up attention with prominent critics, and even took them to London, UK; there they played a week of shows at the London City Showcase as the only band from North America to be selected by Sonicbids for the spot. Since then, led by singer/synth/keytar-player Nicholas Petricca, Walk has continued to make noise around the US, named by NYC’s historic Arlene’s Grocery as one of their ‘Best Bands of 2009.’

Last year, they released their debut LP entitled I Want! I Want!, which features future summer 2011 hits like “Anna Sun” and “Lisa Baby.” Have a listen to the latter of the two below, and be in the know before this band inevitably attract the widespread fanbase they deserve. (Word on the street is that they crushed their SXSW performance a few weeks back!)

Oldies: The Voom Blooms

Oldies: The Voom Blooms – Lovers {0}

The Voom Blooms were a four-piece indie rock band from Loughborough, England, who disbanded in 2009. Their sound was a blend of Bloc Party and Interpol, albeit leaning more to the post-punk side — a genre that I have worshipped for years. Although they released only one EP, entitled Nine Ships, it should be noted that this was probably the best one-off EP release from any band in the past decade. Bold statement, yes. It’s just that good. Check out “Lovers” — one of my personal favorites.
