The Big Pink

Apparently it's music video Thursday. I've found about 5 videos that I absolutely adore today, and that is always celebration for a little dance party. Below is The Big Pink's music vid for "Dominos," an indie power ballad (in my opinion, obvs) that just takes a girl's skirt and rips it up.

Don't you just wish on certain days you can explode just like that ice sculpture and still make it look sexy? Look for The Big Pink's album debuting in the states on September 15, 2009.

Summer of Hate/Love/Death?

Watch the Crocodiles' video to "Summer of Hate" below.  They're ranked on SPIN's 20 Best Summer Songs of 2009, plus the black and white graphics remind me of Revolver in motion.

Yellow Bird Project

Check out this track by Kristian Matsson (The Tallest Man on Earth), one of the indie rockers who was commissioned by the Yellow Bird Project to construct a [obviously folkie] sound embodying YBP's non-profit org that makes sweet tees for a variety of charities. 

What do ya think?
Yellow Bird Project Theme song

While you're at it, look to the left where all the bomb-ass artists are, and listen to some of the tuneage. A lot of my favorite bands are part of the Yellow Bird Project, and have designed bomb-ass tees for your liking. Go now!
