Video: Tennis- Cape Dory

[vodpod id=ExternalVideo.961033&w=425&h=350&fv=]

For Cape Dory, EIWIF band Tennis take a stab at the low quality VHS style of video recording that has been the latest craze in the indie world.  The style is still awesome, and is made even more awesome by the whole video revolving around a guy skateboarding while attached to a car.  The imagery is great and it fits the home-recorded sound of the band.

Stream: Ra Ra Riot- Too Dramatic

It is official, Ra Ra Riot are the puppies of the indie-pop world.  They coat their songs in an addictive and sweet production that is too good to hate.

Ra Ra Riot are smart puppies though; rolling drums, strumming strings, splashes of synths and that interplay.  Too Dramatic has all of those things and more, making this a great song to add to my growing hype for The Orchard.

XV – Squares

XV having been recently signed to Warner Bros. Records, is celebrating by releasing a bunch of tracks.  This is a new one that will most likely be featured on his upcoming project, Vizzy Zone.  XV always finds some fresh slightly electronic production to rap over and this Johnny Juliano-produced beat is no exception.

Moxie Black – So Much Better

And another thanks goes out to Confusion for this one.  I’ve already said that Moxie Black is sure to have the mainstream crowd, and this song is also making me start to think that they will be accepted by the indie crowd also.  The instrumental Dekk created for this one reminds me a lot of the strokes, and you would think that ILLA’s tastefully auto-tuned crooning would clash with it, but the result is actually something fresh and great.  I am starting to really really like Moxie Black.

Catch Up

I just got back from a trip I took visiting my amigos in the Dominican Republic where I was out of reach of the vice grip that is the internet.  Over the next hour or so I will be taking a journey through the past 5 days in my email account and on the internet finding all of the music I missed and will be posting it in this post after the jump.
