The Reindeer Section (no link to a proper website exists)



Perfect band to recommend on this thread. This is a Glasgow 'Super Group' led by Gary Lightbody from Snow Patrol that have made one of the only albums I'll give a 10/10 to of the last 5 years with Son of Evil Reindeer (2002). I remember NME saying they were the 'The Most Indie Band Ever', and while I'm not quite sure what that means, I found it funny.

Including such people as Belle & Sebastian's Mick Cooke and Richard Colburn, Arab Strap's Aidin Moffatt, Mogwai's John Cummings, Idlewild's Roddy Woomble, Norman Blake of Teenage Fanclub and members from Astrid, Hercules, Eva, Mull Historical Society, V-Twin, The Vaselines and Cadet. Like I said - a supergroup!

Their first album Y'all Get Scared Now, Ya Hear! (2001) I don't care for as much (6/10) but still worth getting if you like the other.

It's akin to early Snow Patrol (before Final Straw) which I much prefer to their newer stuff (When It's All Over We Still Have to Clear Up is another great album which I'll give a 9/10) but still much more broader, if nothing else due to all the different styles and amounts of instruments being used...

Here's a couple freebies for ya that give a good indication of their music. Cartwheels is easily my favorite song of theirs (and honestly comes to mind when people ask me the best pop song ever made)...

Jenny Lewis with the Watson Twins




I could just as easily talk about why I love Rilo Kiley (trust me), but Jenny Lewis’ solo album Rabbit Fur Coat on Team Love records will do for now. Jenny is the former child actor-turned-rocker who seems more “at home” with this acoustic solo stuff than with Rilo Kiley. Maybe it seems that way, because you can better appreciate her precious voice, fairly strong songwriting capability, and heavy country accent/influences. Really, Lewis could make a great country or folk artist. Honestly, I think if Rabbit Fur Coat had even more of a country-feel, it’d be a love affair among critics.

Jenny refers to Rabbit Fur Coat as an intimate “soul” album, although on the outside-looking-in it appears to be nothing more than an acoustic coffee-house album, while the Watson Twins additionally offer a bluegrass-type feel. The entire album is melodic, but something about each song leaves you feeling unfulfilled…it’s like Neko Case without the extra push…but this is still an album without any filler, meaning it’s still somewhat superior to an average Rilo Kiley album (no, I still love Rilo Kiley).

This isn’t a deep or complex album and frankly, you're an idiot if you were expecting that. It’s a soulful piece that is both melodic and sincere. Let me just say that you don’t have to like Rilo Kiley to like this album.

Favorite Tracks: Happy, Rise Up With Fists, Handle With Care, It Wasn’t Me, and Rabbit Fur Coat

finally got arround to checking out tilly and the wall, you're right, it's not the greatest thing in the world but the drumming/tapping is very addictive...plus they do have many fun tracks...( and a bunch of filler )....it was still worth downloading...
