1) I followed a link from The Whitest Boy Alive page to jakeandlola's journal (what, no user tags?), read about a group called Bad Dream Good Breakfast, and gave them a listen. They're very awesome and deserve more listeners. So go give them a try! ;) I bought a bunch of their tracks this week. Favorites so far are The Urgency of Nightlife and the Temptations That Come of It, Empty Streets, and Over This.
2) Somebody in the Indie Rock group (by the username of langstrand) mentioned Okkervil River as his favorite indie group. I like them too, so I took a look at his profile, and since he also had Shearwater at the top of his top artists list, I thought I'd see if anything else was good, and started listening to his radio station.
Yep, lots of stuff was good, and I especially got hooked on Jump, Little Children. Let's see, I think so far I've bought B-13, Vertigo, Words Of Wisdom, Rains in Asia, and Mexico, and have a bunch more on my wishlist. Fantastic!
