I still believe that the Local Natives is one of the new(er) US indie bands to catch, their second album, "Hummingbirds" is a sweet pie of different tastes if anyone likes the melodic part of indie rock/pop.

 

No links, do your own search, part of the internet.. :-) Check out if they perform near you and if they do play live near you, then show up, if you like their music of course :-)

 

So far their present tour in Europe at small venues of course, but reviewed from different sources overall gave the Local Natives at least one or more thumbs up for their live performance!

 

Maybe the Indie band to catch live when they finally hit US  home ground very soon.. and with a very decent new album release in their backpack as well.. Local Natives " Hummingbirds"

It is odd usually Cincinnati gets very few bands.  Recently though, we are getting a lot of good ones.  I am pretty sure I saw that local natives are coming.  I am already seeing animal collective in a couple weeks.  Next Friday I am seeing foxygen with my little brother.  I really want to see Broken Social Scene live.  I hear they are something amazing.  

 

I already have the local natives new cd on my cd rotation. I like it.

I live in Mobile, Alabama (unfortunately), but we've got some really good acts performing in the city and nearby of late. Churchill came just about a month ago, Milo Greene came before that, Delta Rae came a few months ago, and with Hangout Fest half and hour away in Orange Beach we're getting The Shins, Passion Pit, Bloc Party, Dirty Projectors, Grouplove, Shovels and Rope, The Weeks, and more.

I'm also going to catch them next Saturday.

 

Anyone here listen to Pinback?  One of the more classic indie bands, still going strong.  Saw them in November, great show.  Their last LP, Information Retrieved, is very good.  One of those bands that I've always felt their popularity has suffered for having such an original sound that defies easy pigeonholing.  If that's a word.

Who here uses the treasure trove of netlabels out there to procure tons of free indie music? My personal favorites are mostly pretty insane (Quote Unquote Records, Records on Ribs, etc.), but there's some pretty solid synthpop and indiefolk out there for free through nonprofit labels.

Anybody here listen to David Kilgour.  Was the guitarist for the Clean way back in the day.  Really enjoying his later solo stuff.  A little poppy for me but in a good way.  Have only listened to his latest but plan to make my way through the back catalog..

I haven't listened to any of his newer albums, but I have his first two solo albums "Here Come's The Cars" and "Sugar Mouth" from the early 90's. I like the first one the best.

I have awhile ago but I will have to check out my local record store and pick up a few of their albums.  I think everyone here would love the store I go to.  Ra Ra Riot, Frightened Rabbit and the Black Keys played free shows there.  I will take some pictures of it to show everyone.  It is a really cool place.

 

I just got out of a mental hospital.  The whole time I was like I got to listen to some music.  My escape was a fleetwood mac song during our occupational therapy.

Highly recommend his latest Left By South. Really lets his guitar shine on that one. And the songwriting is very good.

My favorite David Kilgour album is "Frozen Orange." I haven't heard his newest one, I'll have to check out "Left By Soft."

I don't think you will be disappointed. Slightly cleaner production than Frozen Orange with more emphasis on his guitar playing which I really enjoy. A couple of instrumental songs as a change of pace are standouts.

Ok, you guys inspired me. I'm going to pick up "Frozen Orange" and "Left By Soft" and then I will let you know if I think they are better than "Here Come The Cars" 

 

What about The Chills? What's your opinion on this band, now that we're into NZ territory. Well, I know that David Kilgour joined them for a while and later collaborated with Martin Phillipps on one of his solo  albums..

 

I have one album ( and a few more) with The Chills, "Submarine Bells" and it is pure heavenly pop jangle from the Kiwis... so far away and yet so much better than much else...:-)

Downloaded a couple of The Chills albums and will give them a listen later today. I am pretty new to the whole NZ thing. Very cool stuff I am discovering. Also downloaded the Palma Violets.

Honestly how do you guys afford all this music without a service like Rhapsody. I have been using it for years now and with myself and two teenage boys I can even imagine the money I would be spending otherwise.

Anyway will give the stuff a listen later today.

My friends band called Peter Adams just released his third album.  You can get it on bandcamp.  

 

http://store.peteradamsmusic.com/album/fifteen-fires-in-the-filament-eve

 

You can buy the cd version and get a free download of numerous music formats including flac or just buy the digital download.  You can also just listen to the album to see if you would like it.  The violinist in the band is my friend.  I have seen them in concert three times, really cool.
