The Unknown & Unheard Show 199!

Stream & Download The U & U Show 199 Right Here, Right Now! (Download) Tim Kasher - Cold Love - The Game of Monogamy (2010) - Solo debut from the frontman of Cursive - Musically it sounds like a Thermals track. Official Site : Amazon : HypeMachine Marnie Stern – Cinco de Mayo – Marnie Stern (2010) - 3rd album - One of the most unique acts that I’m kicking myself for taking so long to discover. - A wild mix of the joyous unpredictability of Ponytail and the harder Yeah Yeah Yeahs tracks. MySpace : Amazon : HypeMachine Yeah Yeah Yeah's – Maps – Fever to Tell (2003) - Debut full length from this stylistically unique garage rock band. - Karen O is the lead singer and has one of the best voices going in any genre if you ask me. Official Site : MySpace : Amazon : HypeMachine Ponytail – Beg Waves – Ice Cream Spiritual (2008) - 2nd album - Missed this band completely, but after seeing them live I am totally sold on them - The lead singer’s shrill unique way of singing makes her more of an instrument than a reciter of lyrics. - Biggest pleasant surprise of the weekend. MySpace : Amazon : HypeMachine Parlovr - Pen to the Paper – Parlovr (2008) - Debut album - Pronounced ‘parlour’. - Originally out in 2008… re-released this year. - 2nd album is forthcoming. - Wolf Parade/Suckers anthem feel. - I didn’t even have to wait for the vocals to cast my vote of approval as this track had me smiling within seconds of hitting play. MySpace : Amazon : HypeMachine Listening Party – All Those Animals – I Was Young (2010) - One of my favorite bands and they snuck an album out on me! - Incredibly catchy band from western Canada. MySpace : Amazon : HypeMachine Voxhaul Broadcast - Rotten Apples - Rotten Apples (2007) - Debut full length. - This track has a driving anthem feel and is somewhat reminiscent of the Kings of Leon (minus the sell out side). Official Site : MySpace : Amazon : HypeMachine The Black Angels - Sunday Afternoon – Phosphene Dream (2010) - 3rd album from the ominous psych rockers. - Formed in 2004 in Austin, TX - Interesting feel to it… similar to some of the Black Keys more eerie songs - Debut Self Titled EP was released in 2005. 2nd full length out in 2008 Official Site : MySpace : Amazon : HypeMachine Paul Cary - The Curse Of China Bull - Ghost of a Man (2010) - Dirty southern blues. - RIYL Black Keys and Seasick Steve - DOWNLOAD THIS ALBUM FOR FREE HERE! MySpace : HypeMachine Luke Doucet and the White Falcon - Some of You Folks - Steel City Trawler (2010) - Makes me think a lot of Ike Reilly just not quite as much polish and flair. - Huge mash up of styles, but primarily focused around southern barroom style rock. Official Site : MySpace : Amazon : HypeMachine The 88 - Center of the Sun - The 88 (2010) - 6th album - LA band that pulls from the British invasion and Bowie style glam rock. Official Site : MySpace : Amazon : HypeMachine Vincent Minor - Heavy Metal Lover - Vincent Minor (2010) - Debut album. - The majority of the album makes me think of Ben Folds. - The main reason this song made it on the shot might be my love for Nightswimming by REM. Official Site : MySpace : Amazon : HypeMachine Futurebirds - Johnny Utah - Hampton's Lullaby (2010) - Debut full length - Download it for free from their site! Official Site : MySpace : HypeMachine Azure Ray - Make Your Heart - Drawing Down the Moon (2010) - 4th album.
