The City and Horses – “We Will Never Be Discovered” [MUSIC]

The City and Horses

Marc, the lead singer of The City and Horses, started the band as a side project from his New York apartment.  Since the first E.P. release in 1997, the band has evolved, played shows and perfected their indie-pop tracks.  Their last EP release, Little Finland, (the first for the Marc’s whole band) on White Shoe Records in the US, had a great review including one by Time Out New York.  Their appeal is quite simple — they make jangly, well-crafted pop songs with quirky, intelligent lyrics and quickly hummable hooks.  And that’s that.  Yet, unlike other contemporary indie bands, The City and Horses hope to remain in the shadows behind their meaningful and melodic tunes.  Check out the title track of their soon to be released album, We Will Never Be Discovered, on Paper Garden Records.

Little Tybee – “Building a Bomb” [MUSIC]

Little Tybee

 

I just stumbled upon a great indie-folk band, named after a tiny island off the coast of their native Georgia, where legend has it an undetonated hydrogen bomb lies missing. More of a music collective than an easily definable, self-contained entity, Little Tybee has five core members, and at least a handful of other talented musicians who accompany the band in their quest toward orchestral pop brilliance. The core of each of their songs begins in the relentless and creative mind of vocalist/guitarist/pianist Brock Scott. The songs mature through the dedicated musicianship of 8-string guitarist Josh Martin, violinist Nirvana Kelly, bassist Ryan Donald, and percussionist Pat Brooks.  Listen to their track Building a Bomb to get a feel for what Little Tybee has to offer.
