2. Neighborhood #2 (Laika)
Artist: Arcade Fire
Why: I dare that instrumental part NOT to get stuck in your head.
Why: This pop-rock band was my first small concert I ever attended and I still like their music even if its more pop these days. Great tune with relatable lyrics.
4. No Cars Go

5. Undisclosed Desires
Album: The Resistance
Why: I’ve had “The Resistance” on repeat all week. Concert Countdown: 10 DAYS!

Why: New Coldplay is never a bad thing. Coldplay + The Hunger Games = awesome.
7. Shake Me Down
Artist: Cage The Elephant
Album: Thank You, Happy Birthday
Why: Cage The Elephant is opening for Muse next week so I’ve been expanding my knowledge beyond “Ain’t No Rest For The Wicked” and they have some really solid tunes.
Album: Smallpools EP
Why: They’re touring with Walk The Moon AND The Mowgli’s!? 3 bands I love in one show? I better get to this show! Oh yeah, awesome song.
9. The One That Go Away
Artist: The Civil Wars
Album: The Civil Wars
Why: So beautiful. I don’t know anything else by this band but this song I just love it.
10. Shot At The Night
Artist: The Killers
Album: Greatest Hits??
Why: Wait… what? This hasn’t even been released yet. This hasn’t even been confirmed as the title of the new song… So how do I know I’ll love it… well its THE KILLERS that’s why. The one band I love more than any other band ever. I already have a mental picture of what this song will sound like (Brandon’s powerful vocals, M83 influenced synths, catchy radio friendly tune, lyrics describing a love story).
Wow. Sorry for that fangirl rant! Victims will understand I hope 🙂
