Ears To The Music, Vol. IV: The Spinto Band, The Dodos, Public Radio, Elvis Perkins, A Sunny Day in Glasgow & More!
The Dodos return with one of the most addictive indie songs of this half of 2009 – “Fables” (see the new video), from their impressive album Time to Die. The band is currently on an extensive tour in the States until the end of next month, and then, after a two-week break, The Dodos set out on a two month European tour.
Public Radio is an indie rock-pop band from Charlotte, NC who cite among their influences The Flaming Lips, Modest Mouse and Wilco. Their new track, “Forget Love,” off their latest LP Sweet Child, is one of the most memorable songs of 2009. Public Radio’s MySpace page includes a mission statement to make songs “that are both energetic and inspiring for social and personal change.” Band member Mark Mathis is also offering a free download of his solo EP.
This playlist also includes sweet singles from new and upcoming releases by the awesome Elvis Perkins in Dearland; Philadelphia’s psyche pop A Sunny Day in Glasgow; Athens, Georgia’s electro-pop band Circulatory System; Cincinnati’s hot indie rockers Why?; New York’s garage pop band Darlings; Illinois’ Lake Country indie pop band Headlights, and Philadelphia’s folk pop artist Kurt Vile.
