David Bazan- Please Baby Please

Seattle produces some great music. I love that city. It has Culture with a capital C. And KEXP (an avid listener since KCMU): Thanks for the great taste, DJ's!!!

I've been listening to David Bazan since Pedro The lion in the 90's

Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros- Home

I think I have found my people! Alex Ebert created the persona Edward Sharpe who "was sent down to Earth to kinda heal and save mankind...but he kept getting distracted by girls and falling in love."

Also, of the 12 part feature length musical Salvo!, here are Part 1:

Passion Pit- Little Secrets

Michael Angelakos has Tom Waits hair. He is accompanied by 4 fellow music nerds. These guys are tight and upbeat. I keep paying a dollar to hear this song on the jukebox at work.

The Temper Trap- Sweet Disposition

Dig these Aussie rockers. Dougy Mandagi's vocal range is brave and catchy. Its such a great, dancey tune.
