InterFace Release 1.1/Sechico. (by mamotaso)

Schoolyard Heroes

Sometimes, fierce entities come in unexpected packages. Right out of high school, Seattle, Washington’s Schoolyard Heroes – brash dealers of angular riffs with thematic bents that’d make Issac Asimov proud – launched their Priest construction-meets-Misfits lyricis attack on prog punk at all-ages venues throughout the ever-vibrant Pacific Northwest scene in 2003 before releasing that year’s The Funeral Sciences full-length on The Control Group label.

There are a lot of things you can say about the horror punk band Schoolyard heroes.  Accused of spreading “devil’s music”—I’d say they are called horror punk for a reason rather than being accused of satanic- they definitely have..interesting lyrics. Poetic in a gruesome manner.  (You’re shaking like a first time skin flick/my soul goes to the highest bidder)  Not everyone’s cup of tea. But one of my favourite bands. And yes, I am aware of my erratic taste in music.

SHE: “If I’m not mistaken, I’ve torn your heart out three times now.”
HE: “It’s true, my dear. You tore me up like a boy made of paper.”
TOGETHER: “It was the right thing to do at the time!”

The Script

The Script are Danny O’Donoghue, Mark Sheehan and Glen Power from Dublin, Ireland.

After reaching 15 in the charts with debut single We Cry, their 2nd single The Man Who Can’t Be Moved peaked at 2. Their debut album, The Script, was released on the 11th August, and went straight to number 1 on iTunes UK & Ireland. Their 3rd single Breakeven was released on the 10th of November 2008.

They sound a little like a mix of The Fray and the Notwist. I’m pretty sure this song is absolutely gorgeous.

The Spill Canvas

The Spill Canvas, imo is an amazing band. I don’t know if this is just because I’ve listened to them for years, but I stand by their potential. Lyrically they surpass most bands with with catchy metaphors (“Oh the chemistry between us could destroy this place.”) A lot of these sort of bands that  I listened to during my teenage years I only pop out occassionally for nostalgia’s sake, but this is one band I just listen to because they’re just that good. I’m offering up a few albums:

Sunsets & Car Crashes

One Fell Swoop

Go For The Jugular

Denial Feels So Good

We just let the beat take us away to the early morn.

The Bird and the Bee


The Bird and the Bee are an indie pop/electronica duo from Los Angeles, CA comprised of Inara George on vocals and Greg Kurstin doing the producing, engineering and mixing as well as providing all instrumentation apart from Inara’s fuzz bass on Again and Again.

They are pretty much one of my favourite bands ever.
