Jonathan Coulton, “Good Morning Tucson”

He looks a little like Andrew Gold and sounds a little like They Might Be Giants and the results of that bizarre marriage are impeccably frisky and eminently fun.

Summer Fiction, “Chandeliers”

There’s something about that simple “Heart And Soul” three-chord piano riff, heard on every summer-camp piano since time immemorial, that gets us every time. And here it is again, this time serving as the perfect foundation for Summer Fiction‘s song “Chandeliers.”

Foster The People, “Pumped Up Kicks” (Remix)

2011 may have found its new MGMT. Or is it Peter, Bjorn and John? Or quite possibly Maroon 5. Sounds contradictory? Then you haven’t yet heard the sounds of Foster The People.

The Regal/Parlophone Records (Gorillaz, Bat for Lashes, LCD Soundsystem) label seems to have a lock on groups like The Good Natured fronted by Sarah McIntosh who pull off a heartfelt pop via pulsing dance rhythms (think Robynmeets La Roux) and slinky vocals.

Download a free MP3 of “Sixteen Shades of Black and Blue” from the band’s fourth album, Ventriloquizzing released on Yep Roc Records.
