Music Monday 36

Happy July! Al Bairre released just one EP and a handful of singles before disbanding, but I love them anyway. The band members have great character (just watch their other music videos) and their songs are catchy and energetic.

I've got another cover this week, thanks to my friend Eric who shared this a while back. This band also has a couple of Tool covers, which are equally excellent!

Music Monday 34

Consider this week's post as an honorable mention since I'm not a huge Weezer fan nor do I know any other songs by a-ha. I do enjoy this particular song though, and I really think the music video does it justice as a nostalgic homage.

Music Monday 33

Tacocat is a true Seattle band. I've described them as feminist-punk because although their music may be pop in flavor, it's punk in spirit. And that's what matters, because rebellion happens in the mind.

Music Monday 32

This week we take one last stop in the UK to visit The Fratellis, another band with a great first album. Costello Music is packed with non-stop, upbeat music and each song presents a (sometimes flawed, usually fun) character. You won't be able to resist dancing or singing along.

We continue on in the UK this week with Bloc Party. Their first album, Silent Alarm, is a stellar example of how to write an album that is thematic and cohesive yet not overly repetitive. This passionate album touches on relationships, sex, culture, politics and existentialism and does so in a poetic way that makes you feel like each song is a slice of someone's life.

Changing pace (and continents) a bit, this week I'm sharing a catchy song from Arctic Monkey's second album. With clever lyrics and a great British indie rock sound, it's easy to get into their music.
