feed your ears - Foxy little conchords

This week, 3 more artists you may not have heard of, but they definitely deserve a listen.

Little Red

The golden era of rock and roll is alive and well in the hands of 5 boys from Melbourne, Australia.
After hearing Little Red, you're gonna want to slip into your poodle skirt, slick your hair back with Bryl Cream and head down to the Milkbar in your Hotrod.
Just don't get out, you'll look ridiculous.

Oh yeah, the album is way cool!

Fleet Foxes

How do describe Fleet Foxes? it's not easy.
They describe their music as "Baroque harmonic pop jams".
Still confused?

Best just to listen i think. 

There's certainly elements of Simon & Garfunkel, The Beach Booys and Crosby, Stills & Nash in there. 
I highly recommend going to there myspace page for more tunes.

Whack this in your browser.

Flight of the Conchords

If you haven't heard Flight of the Conchords yet, you're missing out!
They describe themselves as,
"Formerly New Zealand's fourth most popular guitar-based digi-bongo acapella-rap-funk-comedy folk duo".

They've been doing amazingly well here and in Britain, and they're album debuted at Number 3 on the American Billboard Charts. Awesome!

See ya next week!
