Saint Motel

Saint Motel – Los Angeles, CA (USA)

Saint Motel is an Indie/Pop/Rock band that writes quirky, fun, hand clapping, singable songs that are often filled with sarcasm and in your face lyrics. Imagine dancing and rocking out to a song that has a line “Your ship is sinking now go down with it” in it and you are happy!

We caught their show at SXSW tonight and they did a great job! Make sure that you check them out later this week here at SXSW when they will be performing with Neon Trees, Great Northern, She Wants Revenge and Greek Fire.

The band’s single “Puzzle Pieces” is currently in the Top 10 on The Hype Machine today!

The Boxer Rebellion

The Boxer Rebellion – London, UK

Equal parts artistry, beauty and mood these guys are satellite radio darlings and in-house favorites here for us. The band recently released a brand new album ‘The Cold Still’ that they did with legendary producer Ethan Johns (Kings of Leon, Ryan Adams and Ray LaMontagne)…if you need an album to increase your musical intelligence this is it…put it on and drift away…sonic brilliance!

Last month, The Boxer Rebellion made their U.S.  Network Television debut when they appeared on the Late Show with David Letterman….check out their video performance below!
