Okkervil River

I've been listening to Okkervil Rivers new album 'The stage names' a lot recently and I love it... so... here are some of my favourite tracks. Hope to see them in Leeds soon too.

Okkervil River - A Hand To Take Hold Of The Scene
Okkervil River - John Allyn Smith Sails
Okkervil River - Love To A Monster

Okkervil River - Girl in port (video)

Frightened Rabbit

Scottish band Frightened Rabbit were formed in 2004 by Scott and Grant Hutchison. The brothers from Glasgow produce great infectious indie tunes with a hint of folk... just the way we like it.

Frightened Rabbit - The Greys
Frightened rabbit - Be less rude
Frightened Rabbit - Go Go Girls

Vampire Weekend

The excellent Vampire Weekend are from New York City and have a really individual sound. I can only describe it as a mixture of early British new wave mixed with Paul Simon and his African influences.
