Allegedly Life-changing "Indie-Rock" "Bands"
The AP also names several "indie rock bands" that it claims will "change your life". Sufjan Stevens is an "indie rock band"? Oh, I get it. Sufjan Stevens now has a band named after him. An indie rock band evidently. I couldn't find a website for them or any record of their existence, so they must be pretty underground. Cool, but that made posting an mp3 by them "umpossible". So I'm just posting a song by the "regular" Sufjan Stevens and remind you that the AP didn't promise he'd change your life. I guess he may, but don't expect miracles. If you've been listening to him for a while, maybe if he was going to change your life, he would have by now.
What the-John Vanderslice? Is there a band named after him too? Screw it. Just posting a song by the dude John Vanderslice too. I don't know about this trend; life is confusing enough already.
The AP's "Indie Rock Bands That Will Change Your Life":
mp3:Arcade Fire - Old Flame (from Arcade Fire)
mp3:The Flaming Lips - Spongebob & Patrick Confront the Psychic Wall of Energy (from The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie: Music from the Movie and More... )
mp3:Thievery Corporation feat. The Flaming Lips - Marching the Hate Machines (Into the Sun) (from The Cosmic Game) (actually just the Flaming Lips will supposedly change your life. I really shouldn't let Thievery Corporation grab any of their glory)
mp3:Yeah Yeah Yeahs - Our Time (from the EP Yeah Yeah Yeahs)
mp3:Antony and the Johnsons - Perfect Day (Lou Reed cover, from Lou Reed's The Raven. I think this is okay... I guess... but I prefer Lou Reed's version. Also prefer the version done by a ton of people for a commercial for... the BBC, was it? Kirsty MacColl and Evan Dando have a nice version too)
mp3:Spoon - I Summon You (from Gimme Fiction)
mp3:Sufjan Stevens - All Good Naysayers, Speak Up! Or Forever Hold Your Peace! (from Greetings From Michigan: The Great Lakes State)
mp3:John Vanderslice - My Old Flame (from Time Travel is Lonely)
