Techno Squirrels – Love Comes First

techno.gif

LA based band with a horrible name, but beautiful music.   Seriously,  “Techno Squirrels”… I keep picturing a little kid with glow sticks and a Casio  churning out techno from his bedroom.   Here’s  hoping they change their name….

Remind me alot of telepopmusik

Wolfsheim – Once In A Lifetime

Well, I guess I’m late to the game on this one. Neverheard of Wolfsheim until today and I’m pleasently surprised how good they are at crafting memoriable synthpop/goth tunes. Vocals remind of Peter Murphy, from Bauhaus fame.

Be sure to check out thier myspace page for more tunes.

This male / female duo produce sunshine fun drenched indie rock/electronic/pop music that is quite catchy.  

Not the greatest quality video, but her it is none the less:

Candie Payne – By Tomorrow

candiepayne.jpg

Candie Payne hails form Liverpool and has that revival Motown sound I love, think Amy Winehouse and The Pipettes meets St. Etienne.   This track would fit nicely on a James bond sound track, I’m of course taking about a 1960’s Sean Connery, “BOND, JAMES BOND” version.
