Winston’s Essentials: A Polyvinyl Sampler
Here is a fifteen song sampler from Polyvinyl Record Co. that I downloaded for free as part of my eMusic deal. I’m just going to give you quick thoughts, artist by artist.
1) Casio Kids – I like this.
2) Of Montreal – Sounds like a less good version of Weezer.
3) Love is All – There is a reason I’ve never heard of this band before. These vocals are painfully awful.
4) Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin – Cool surf-like, pop punk rock with clapping and drum climbing. Somewhat mellow and upbeat at the same time.
5) Japandroids – Fast pop punk that’s just great.
6) Aloha – Duh, I know these guys already. You should have heard of them before too.
7) Joan of Arc – Surprisingly not female vocals.
8) Asobi Seksu – This one’s got Joan Osborne-like female vocals. Live song.
9) Love of Everything – Weird, short song. Kind of like Eels maybe.
10) Owen – I’ve heard of these guys before too. Still don’t really like them.
11) Loney Dear – Weird female “nah nah nahs” with male vocals singing about ignorant girls and ignorant boys.
12) Headlights – Pretty nice female indie rock.
13) Saturday Looks Good to Me – Live, female vocals, horns and very good actually. Kind of like the Come on Eileen band but not. Sort of ska, but not really.
14) Braid – Who hasn’t heard of Braid before?
15) Volcano, I’m Still Excited!! - Duh. You should already know this amazing band as well.
