I believe that I may have been whacked upside the head by this band. Death Cab For Cutie. I've had the following song stuck in my head for 2 days now. It gets airplay locally (on the Indie-oriented stations), and for all I know it's the biggest hit song in the world. You see, I don't listen to Clear Channel or any top 40 radio or watch VH1/MTV, so I'm a little out of it (and not sorry, I just have other ways of being exposed to music).
Here, take a listen: I Will Follow You Into the Dark
So in browsing for more like that, I came across this gem that I've heard quite a bit, but can't tell you exactly where. It's just very familiar. It's a real beauty. The band's music is very melodic, haunting, and sweet sounding. The singing is great. Now I've got THIS one stuck in my head. Soul Meets Body
Both of these songs are fairly old (a year or two?). I don't even own any of their music and don't know much about them. Not yet anyway. Looks like there's a lot to choose from in the "bins".
