Metronomy 'Radio Ladio'


Quirky electro indiepop single from Metronomy which seems to get a rerelease as this track originally came out in 2007. Uk outfit who are also known for their remixes of everyone from Lykke Li, Goldfrapp, CSS, Love Is All, Late Of The Pier to Ladytron. Maybe this release is with new remixes? Anyways, the original is quite good. Check out the video below

Bombay Bicycle Club - Always Like This


Great indiepop track from the Bombay Bicylce Club. Here's the deal. Record company won't let us embed so click above for the official video. However click below for a fan's video for the track which is just as fun if not better than the original. Again this cut has that worldy type of vibe made fairly popular by VW. This is the second single and I'm thinking will be off the first album I Had the Blues But I Shook Them Loose. Sweet track from this UK outfit

Yeah Yeah Yeahs - Zero


Brand new single from the Yeah Yeah Yeahs of their third album It's Blitz. More Siouxsie then the standard raw indiepunk of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. Nice switch up.

Art Brut- Alcoholics Unanimous


Art Brut going on about drinking lots of alcohol. Seems okay to me. First single off their new album. Art Brut vs. Satan. Indie Rock N Roll from this German/english band.

Bat For Lashes - Daniel


Great new track from Bat For Lashes. My first ever blog post actually hyped this outfit up and was pre-IKDK for The Panic Manual back in July 2007. The track was for What's A Girl To Do. Approximately two years later and Bat For Lashes are back with a very moving operatic indiepop story with Daniel. The track is taken from the forthcoming album Two Suns.

Bat For Lashes will be at the Mod club in Toronto on April 25, 2009 but alas the gig is sold out.

Delphic - Counterpoint


Catchy downtempo indiepop track from Delphic. Released on R&S Records well known for their early nineties techno tracks. I'm guessing the label has relaunched.

A Place To Bury Strangers - Missing You


Noisy, eerie, revisit to eighties gloomy alternative indie rock. Want more? Check out the other single we reviewed on October 26 of last year.

Lady Sovereign- So Human


Now I could talk about the new Depeche Mode or Franz Ferdinand singles but they didn't really do anything for me so lets go old skool with Lady Sovereign's new single that rips up the Cure's Close to Me and it works. User friendly UK indie hip hop from the Lady.

Chew Lips - Solo


Great electro-chill-out- indie bouncer from this outfit out of the UK. They have just released their first 12 Inch on Kitsune Records. Nice.

Frankmusik - Better Off As Two


Definately one for a Saturday night. Indie/electro club track from Frankmusik and the Brits first single off his debut album Complete Me.

Jack Penate - Tonight's Today


Signed to XL Recordings. Excellent first single from Jack Penate from a forthcoming album. Jack is definately channeling some Vampire Weekend with a very worldy sound going on in this song. Nice indierock.

Doves - Kingdom of Rust


Brand new single from the Doves from the 4th Doves album of the same name. Doves have been around since 1999. Historically this British indie band was doing dance music as Sub Sub for most of the late nineties until a rumoured fire in their recording studio made them switch to indiepop. Good single but is definately a grower. Full length album was out in the UK on March 30th.

Passion Pit- The Reeling


Fantastic new single from this US electronic pop band taken from their debut album Manners released in May. This is the followup to their big first single Sleepyhead which caused a ruckus last year on the indieclub scene. I'm liking this more than the first single and the first single was some very nice avalanches like cut up.
