Peelander-Z are like nothing i've ever seen, but i guess thats the point. described as japanese action comic punk (which pretty much hits the nail on the head), these guys are defo worth at least 1 gig on your part, having so much fun with their broken english shouting. and finishing with Lionel Richie "Say You Say Me"
check out "Let's Go! Karaoke Party"
heres a nice little video of them bowling in the crowd...?
The Morning Benders, ovs have a comical name, people will one day get over it. the band, people may not be able to get over as easy. these guys are great, really good presents live. hitting you with this lovely vocal harmony half way through the set in "Excuses". real buzz about this band at sxsw, great warm surf sound to it.
check out "Promises"
didn't really know what to expect from Stricken City, i'd head mixed reviews. but they delivered. early in the day, sun is shining and they're inside, they manage to get a pretty decent turn out. the sound really crosses well from CD to live, and so does the energy. has elements of Beach House but a bit more uptempo. with a banshees edge too
check out "Pull The House Down"
beach fossils remind me of alot of current acts at the moment, in that new surf, feed back distorted scene. but there really is something about these guys that make them stand out. with a stand up drummer that seems to be having the most fun ever, ALL THE TIME, they're a pretty fun band to watch too. spot on everytime
check out the track "Daydream"

So last night i went and saw Local Natives who were fantastic. Genuinely tight, the vocals were some of the best i've ever heard live and they really went for it. The lead singer/ guitairist bloke also had one of the most hypnotic and mesmerizing moustaches i have ever seen, but that is another blog post all together.
Anyway, the crowd were absolute shit. Motionless. Not even a foot tap or a head nod in sight. After getting told off for "pushing" my way to the front, i had a feeling it was going to be one of those nights. I dont expect them to be going off (above), but it was really akward to be in the room, i cant even imagine how the band felt? Totally sold out show, one of my favourite bands of last year and im feeling bad for singing and moving around more than having to adjust my fringe. What an embarrassment.
Rant over, now onto someone awesome, Mayer Hawthorne. This guy rules. I've posted loads of his stuff on here but i couldnt give a monkeys, his new video for "I Wish It Would Rain" is golden. Ginger John and his brother got a taste of the tune before Dark Party opened on Saturday and were caining me for it, but whatever, he smashes it:
The only criticism of his album "A Strange Araangement", is that this song isnt on it. But thats o.k because you can download it here:
