Introducing: Pinback

This group has been around since 1998 from out in San Diego, CA. Their website might not have been updated in a while, but here’s what is important: they’re good. Kinda mellow, with simple drum beats in most songs and a lulling guitar, they make good music. According to Wikipedia their style is Indie Rock, Progressive Rock, and Electronic Rock. I stumbled upon them because part of their song Good to Sea (from their album Autumn of the Seraphs) was used in How I Met Your Mother’s latest episode (Season 6, Episode 16). Check out the song below and let us know what you think.

(Triumphing over Eminem, Katy Perry, and Lady Gaga)

Introducing: Two Door Cinema Club

These guys, as a friend puts it, “[are] way legit.” But don’t take our/her word for it. Instead, head over to this playlist to hear music from their album Tourist History. The band is from Northern Ireland and have Indie Rock, Electronica, and Alternative Rock influences. Though it’s a three man team they really drive the music. You can always check out their music at the band’s myspace as well.
