Phoenix – “1901” – This is a performance from one of their three triumphant performances on SNL last weekend. Great song, goofy haircut. I love the sound of the guitars.

Silversun Pickups – “Panic Switch” – They got a lot of good pub from being the lucky band to play before Metallica‘s “secret” show at Stubb’s during SXSW. Some people complain about their sound harking back too much to a 90’s alterna-sound, but as a child of the 90’s I’m pretty ok with that.

St. Vincent – “The Strangers” – Her album Actors is fast becoming one of my favorite albums of the year. Here’s a performance from a few weeks ago at SXSW; my favorite part kicks in around the 3 minute mark.

Cold War Kids – “Hospital Beds” – Bonus video! I’m hoping to hear this song tonight when Cold War Kids open for Death Cab for Cutie. Interesting concept for the video, but I gotta say the lead singer looks nothing like I would have pictured.

Dude, so into Phoenix right now. This song sounds a little like the strokes.
