Abused Romance - "Vaporize"
Abused Romance is a melodic rock band from Los Angeles. The band was recently signed to the newly formed Freeway Records (which was formed by legendary Russ Regan, the former president of Motown Records, 20th Century Records). What's more, if you like their sound, Abused Romance is offering their first album ("Shine") as a free download through their site http://www.abusedromance.com (Downloading it will also sign you up for their email newsletter, but that seems a small price to pay for twelve free MP3 tracks from an up-and-coming band.)
Van She - "Cat and the Eye"
A great indie band (they have a unique, very enjoyable sound) and one the most... um... hmmm... "unique" videos I've seen in a long time.
The View - "Shock Horror"
If you've been following the Musical Alphabet blog, you'll realize that there are numerous excellent artists from the UK that we're simply not exposed to here in the states. Here's another - a Scottish indie rock band.
