Top 3 Indies Artist Videos for Oct. 29, 2016! Love Zombies, Louise Distras, NØISE, Shonen Knife!

It’s time once again for the Top 3 Indies Artist Video Countdown. The Top 3 best Indies and Alternative Music artists for the week of Oct. 29, 2016! And it’s ladies nite once again! All female or female fronted bands!

First up today is a band from London and Los Angeles that call themselves the Love Zombies. The Love Zombies are fronted by Hollis and Davey and this is their latest single. It’s fab. Go “Like” their Facebook page:

#3) Love Zombies Birthday

Next up is Louise Distras. Louise Distras is an alternative rock singer-songwriter from Wakefield, West Yorkshire. I’m pretty sure, though, that I did read somewhere that described her as “The revival of British Punk” (or something to that effect) so that’s why I first checked her music out and I was not disappointed! She’s on tour throughout England and going to Germany and other parts of Europe soon, so go check it out if you have time. Here’s the tour schedule. Go “Like” her Facebook page too!

#2) Louise Distras – Aileen

At #1 this week is a great song along with a really great video. The band is called Noise. Their webpage says: “Noise” has myriad connotations… a sound, a sonic disturbance, a fluctuation in a transmitted electrical signal, and so on, but for the moment, tune out the noise and tune in to NØISE. NØISE is the name of the musical endeavor that sees Shepard Fairey, known for creating iconic artwork, such as the Barack Obama “Hope” image, and the Obey Giant campaign, teaming with veteran musicians John Goff, Merritt Lear, and Joe Cassidy. This band is HOT! Sorry, I can’t find any Facebook or Twitter or anything else besides their webpage:

#1) NØISE – Little Lions

 SPOTLIGHT ARTIST! On our weekly countdown, I usually spotlight at least one cool Japanese rock band. And since today is Ladies Nite, here’s Japan’s most famous female band ever: Shonen Knife! They are currently on a US tour and I hear they are getting rave reviews! Check out their Facebook page:

#1) Shonen Knife “Like A Cat”

That’s all for today! See you next week when we return to the Top 3 Indies Artist Videos Countdown. See ya! – Mike in Tokyo Rogers
