young clubs

new young pony cinema bicycle police club

within the last week i discovered this band called two door cinema club. honestly, they are really fucking awesome. they are young, they are irish (the lead singer looks like the little brother i never had) and they write some of the tightest, catchiest indie pop songs that i have heard all year. i've had a crazy week and i've been busy and this band has been fueling my fast paced life in the best way. it seems every song i have by this band is seriously amazing, and i promise you, they will be stuck in your head.

in about a week or within a week or whatever, i will upload my april mix. because it is officially april, as the warmer weather and torrential downpours indicate. but april is good, i love rain and rain brings life, so everything is becoming greener and greener all the time and i like it.

but back to the music. i've noticed there are a lot of younger, foreign, indie pop bands springing up all over the place, and it seems that all the best ones have the word "club" in their name. i think adding club to the title kind of emphasizes the youth of the band, like little kids forming a club. or forming a band that makes ridiculously catchy tunes.

honestly though, people might say these bands are real young or too poppy or whatever, but i love simple(r) accessible pop music with an edge, and that's just what these songs are. these bands definitely have LOTS of influence over my music. now i just need to work on being catchier, and i'm thinking about changing my band name to---> young kodak film club (seriously though, that's not band sounding, is it? haha)

all these young foreign indie club bands seem to be my favorites also, and they are perfect for warmer weather, specifically driving around in a car. so i'm offering downloads of all these beautiful songs by all these adorable little club bands so you can pick and choose your favorite tunes by each of these bands and then burn yourself a cd to drive around to. do it.

the bands i have chosen here are two door cinema club, bombay bicycle club, new young pony club and tokyo police club. this is a mix, but it features songs only by these four bands.

some note worthy things about this mix: it includes pretty much everything i have by two door cinema club (seriously, every song of their sounds like an a-side worthy single) including some remixes, (i actually included remixes of several songs by a couple of the bands), there are songs here from the new new young pony club album and there is also the new single by tokyo police club but really the only thing you need to know about this mix is that it includes every song that i really like by each of these bands.

happy friday. happy saturday. happy april. happy weekend.

listen to these young indie pop club bands and you will feel better, i promise, the quality of your life will improve once you have these songs pumping through your brain. esp anything by two door cinema club, i'm telling you, they are amazing.

i'm only going to list each band once, so from then on each track will be by that band until i list the next band, but really it's easy to figure out, there are only four bands, and plenty of songs.
