I had a top time listening to music yesterday. I think I'll post a few of my favorites over the coming days.
Check out Doves (not The Doves, just Doves). They seem to fit somewhere between Radiohead and Coldplay: lots of cool sonic stuff going on, lots of wild instrumentation, lots of manipulating the signals, but all of it carrying sweeping pop melodies.
On their myspace, my favorite two songs are "Snowden" and "Cedar Room." Snowden is melodically complex, full of allusions, and deeply philosophical. Cedar Room is a rock anthem--I dig the bass in the chorus!
Their music is full of counterpoint, full of energy, and interesting. Check 'em out
