To My Boy

You will either love or hate these guys. Simplistic lyrics sang with robot-esque vocals which for some might sound familiar (this is probably the art brut fever speaking, everyone sounds like Argos these days. In a good way, that is.), smothered with catchy sounds from electric guitars to synthesizers isn’t exactly for everyone’s ear but if you’re into electro and don’t care much of the profundity of lyrics, you’ll love To My Boy. This duo, from Liverpool, have been around for quite a while but not much of their work has been released in the US. You can get some singles on iTunes OR you can be patient and get their first full length album, Messages, on July 2nd.

I really want to post Model but filexoom is being a bitch. So instead, check out the music video to Model. It reminds me to Sesame Streets’ How To segments.¬† I don’t know…I might be making this up.

Art Brut

In a couple of days Art Brut will be releasing their second album: It’s a Bit Complicated. The band got their start with Rough Trade in 2003 and from then on entered the indie rock scene with a promising sound. Formed A Band was a hit in 2004 and without a doubt Nag Nag Nag Nag will do just as well. I was fortunate enough to get my hands on a rare cover of We Are the Scientists’ The Great Escape by Art Brut. Now I’m not big on covers unless its Chan Marshall but this song is just excellent. There is something in Eddie Argos’ slightly off tune vocals that makes you want to put The Great Escape on repeat mode.
