Company of Thieves – “Oscar Wilde”Slashfilm posted this yesterday because its an homage to Rushmore (which just happens to be one of my favorite films ever). But it also happens to be a really good song. Will need to dig further into this band.

Miniature Tigers – “Cannibal Queen” – As I stated in my review of the Ben Folds concert, this band impressed me quite a bit as an opener. This is a fun song, and the video was shot in the same firehouse as Ghostbusters, according to the Youtube page.

Silversun Pickups – “Lazy Eye” – This song is a few years old but I had heard it all over the place before finally buying the album a few weeks back. While there are some other great songs on Carnavas, “Lazy Eye” is by far the best song on the album. They have a new album coming out in a few months, and I will be on the lookout for it.

National Skyline – “Revenge”National Skyline is made up of former Hum bassist Jeff Dimpsey and vocalist Jeff Garber, though their sound is far removed from Hum‘s. Think atmospheric electro-pop rather than neo-metal with shoegazing tendencies. It’s been a few years since we’ve heard from these guys – their last LP was in 2001 – but they seemingly pickup right from where they left off.
