Hopefully the videos for these songs are decent since YouTube is acting up for me right now. The songs themselves are at least Telling Minor Stories-approved.

Japandroids – “Young Hearts Spark Fire”Japandroids are a Vancouver-based low-fi, garagey pop rock band in the vein of No Age that I have been digging on lately.

Amazing Baby – “Head Dress” – I came across this band on RCRD LBL and downloaded based on the description: “…their intergalactic space rock is not only of-the-moment but has a hand in putting the borough on the musical map for the first time since the early ‘00s. But while that earlier scene was all about gloomy Interpol-ish types, this new Brooklyn is all about happy good vibes, maybe or maybe not aided by some sweet hallucinogenics. Maybe.” They apparently come from the same scene as MGMT, Yeasayer and Chairlift, so they’ve got that going for them as well in addition to having some great songs.

White Rabbits – “Percussion Gun” – Heard this the other day on My Old Kentucky Blog‘s Blog Radio on XMU. Their latest album was produced by Britt Daniel (Spoon) and you can definitely hear some influence in at least this song.
