Florence and the Machine - You've Got the Love



Brand new single from Florence and the Machine and its a cover of a classic by Candi Statton. This song has been reworked and revisited numerous times since its creation. Florence and the Machine do a good job with it but I'll stay preferential to the original eighties version.

The Books - Smells Like Content









I was checking out the live music scene in Milwaukee over the next couple of months (I'll be there over the holidays) and I noticed that the Books are playing at the end of November. While I will miss the show, I thought I would post one of their songs on here since IDKD has not acknowledged their presence before. The musical duo have an experimental musical style and incorporate a variety of samples in their music with an upcoming studio album that will be worth checking out. Oh, and they are more than a little pretentious, but just let the music wash over you.

Brothers Movement - Standing Still



Oasis is back. This second generation Oasis sounding like outfit should appeal to the die hards who still think Oasis is the best band in the world

James Pants - Thin Moon, from Seven Seals

Down tempo dreamy indiepop track from James Pants out of Spokane in the good old USA. Near Washington or something like that. My knowledge of USA geography is limited.

Definately single of the moment. Nice indiepunk ala eighties but spewed out in the 2000s from this German band.
