The new band I like is "Cults." I first heard them when I downloaded a lot of free songs by bands at SXSW provided by SPIN and iTunes. There were many great artists in these playlists but Cults has been getting a lot of buzz lately so I picked them! The only problem is that iTunes only offers one of their songs, "Go Outside," which I like but I know there's got to be so many good ones out there that I don't even know about!
My personal favorite is "Most Wanted," which is the track that I downloaded from Spin's "AUSTIN POWER: Best Bands SXSW 2011." And then I heard it at the end of a Weeds episode, which made me love it even more! The song talks about how what you want the most isn't good for you, who can't relate to that??
Cults just released a new track "Abducted." You can listen to their new release here on NPR.
