We’re back for the weekend version of the Top 3 Indies Videos for May 11, 2015. I want to say thanks to all the artists who have been submitting videos to me for review. Much appreciation. And for you readers, thanks too! I hope you dig finding new artists and bands as much as I do!
First up today at #3 are a band from Auckland, New Zealand who took off to Jolly Old London England the first chance they got. They are an Alternative rock trio, Adam, Dave and Joel. Their name is the Popstrangers and they are at #3.
#3) Popstrangers – Heaven – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UQs6rGE_1cc
At #2 are those two sisters that seem to be catching fire. Their names are Gwendolyn and Lucy and they are better known as the punk band, Dog Party. This is their newest single!
#2) Dog Party – Peanut Butter Dream – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jhg9N-HPKGY
Finally, at this week’s #1 is a punk band from Los Angeles that has been a favorite of mine for quite a while. They beeen on my countdowns before, but this is their first time on the Top 3 Videos. Wikipedia writes:
“FIDLAR is a skate punk/garage punk band from Los Angeles California… The band’s name is an acronym for ‘Fuck It Dog, Life’s a Risk’, a skate mantra gleaned from singer Zac Carper’s former roommates. Originally, FIDLAR went under the name ‘Fuck The Clock’, as referenced in their song ‘Cheap Beer’. Three years after recording their first songs they stepped on stage together with The Black Lips and went on tour with The Hives. In 2012, FIDLAR were named one of Stereogum’s ’40 Best New Bands of 2012′.”
I think you’ll dig this video. It’s got parodies of all sorts of famous videos and pop/rock stars. The Devo “Jocko Homo” parody at about 1:05 into the video floored me! I certainly DID NOT expect that!
#1) FIDLAR – 40oz. On Repeat https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iJy8VgB83OQ
And finally, as I always like to do, I’d like to introduce you to some of Japan’s unsung heroes. Today is a Rockabilly instrumental trio from Tokyo named Bobby’s Bar. This band rocks and performs at some of Tokyo’s coolest underground dives. I’ve seen them live several times and am always impressed by them.
