Dorcel - Closer

I found this band online, when I heard their song Move Away on a music website, and it I really enjoyed it. The rest album is pretty good, but Move Away is easily the best song. I thought it was a pretty good album overall though. It's a pretty short album, so I'd recommend giving it a listen. Plus, they have a free download for it on their website, so won't be wasting any money if you don't like it.

Andrew Bird's Bowl of Fire - Oh! The Grandeur

I just recently discovered this album and was very impressed with it. I would describe it as Swing mixed with Indie rock. Andrew Bird is an extremely talented musician and I have been listening to his music every day since I first discovered him a few weeks ago. I love his own unique style he has. He is also a great lyricist, which really compliments his great music. I would recommend this to you if you want to hear some good music.

Radiohead - The Bends

Radiohead is one of my favorite bands, and The Bends is (if I had to choose) my favorite album by them. Thom Yorke is a great singer and lyricist. I also really like some of the guitar riffs on some of these songs. This album was a big hit in the UK, but not so much in the US. Though not popular at the time it became more of a classic by them. If you haven't heard Radiohead, this album would be a great place to start.
