London, England’s The Maccabees, despite having chosen their name from picking a word from the bible at random, are not a religious band. They do, however, make the kind of relaxed, ambience-laden indie rock that’s able to take the form of any listener’s mood. If you’re feeling happy, so will the music; feeling down? So does the music. But no matter what the mood, those horns are awesome. Check out the music video for the their song “Child” off their 2012 album Given to the Wild below. Read More…

Dublin, Ireland’s BATS make some of the finest post hardcore that can no longer be found in the U.S. Rejecting the tired and repeated ways of American post hardcore, the band are able to keep the music heavy, catchy, gritty, and danceable all at the same time. With half-screaming, half-singing vocals and science-oriented lyrics, BATS may be one of the only bands you’ll ever see nerds dance to. Check out their track “Gamma Ray Burst” off their album Red In Tooth and Claw below. Read More…

West Palm Beach, Florida’s Surfer Blood are back with their new album Pythons which came out last week.
