The Chicago duo of Heather Lynn and Kirsten Nordine are The Capricorns. Think the Yeah Yeah Yeahs meets the Go-Go's making music together in a lo-fi retro synth-pop girly heaven and making groovy catchy and magically fun tunes with unicorns as backup dancers, all under a huge rainbow. Yeah, all that. I promise you'll love it. Check out the song, The New Sound.
Group Sounds is the NYC party boy band notorious for wild live acts that usually include a strip show by keyboardist "sexy" Joe. So what they formed a band to be cool and get with chicks, it just so happens that they actually make really good catchy pop rock tunes too. And they are all cute Jewish boys! Check out Uncontrollable Urge and Things Fall Apart and the video for Twisted Logic is hilarious!
Alt rock trio Rainer Maria has been together for over 10 years and they've just released their 5th full-length album that took 2 years in the making, Catastrophe Keeps Us Together. It includes clean and effectively produced indie-rock tracks, which yet again proves that this is a maturing band who continues a tradition of releasing consistently good music. Check out Life of Leisure.
