Animal bands.

May 13, 2008

I’ve been on a big music kick lately.  So, I’ve been listening to bands outside of my standard go-tos (Stars, TMSR, LC!, to name a few).  It was only recently, though, that I noticed that the bands I’ve been drawn to lately all have one thing in common: they have animals in their titles.  Examples!

  • Andrew Bird
  • Elefant
  • Foals
  • Frightened Rabbit
  • Grizzly Bear
  • New Buffalo
  • The Redlands Palomino Co.
  • Swan Lake
  • The Unicorns
  • Wolf Parade

And those are just the bands I have on my iPod.  I wholeheartedly recommend all of them, especially Frightened Rabbit, who I got into only recently.  Their most recent album, The Midnight Organ Fight, is my favorite album of the year so far, which says something.  I have one of their songs on my muxtape, so give it a listen.  You’ll be glad you did.
