The Limousines - Internet Killed The Video Star
Yes, the title's a little obvious, but this giddy piece of synth-pop from San Francisco band The Limousines is pretty addictive. It sounds a bit like an uber-indie band (think Arcade Fire) throwing up their hands and deciding to go completely pop. The quirkiness is still there, especially in the vocals, but it's complemented by an ever-repeating hook and a cacophony of synths. It all gets a little bit messy towards the end, but I could definitely do with more of this sound in the indie world. Plus, the band's got the image thing down. I'm in love with the whole sci-fi movie motif above. More bands should aspire to this sort of visual excellence!
