If you are alive and have ears, you should listen to Thunderbirds Are Now! who are an amazing detroit based band on frenchkiss records. my personal favorite songs are pink motorcycle helmet, better safe than safari, and last sandwich for sanchez, though anything you find by this band is more than likely going to blow your mind. they base their sound around chaotic synthesizers and frantic vocals of the allen brothers....also if you ever get the chance, they put on the best live show i have ever seen.
Les Savy Fav.. being new to the community, i dont know what any of you listen to or already know about, but if you havent heard these guys, i strongly recommend it...they are the most amazing thing i have ever heard. they are by far my favorite band. they have one of the most original sounds, which i can barely put into words.
some great songs to check out by them would be : reformat, hold on to your genre, dishonest don part II, and disco drive. there are many other great songs by this band, but if you like these, il leave you to find them on your own.
