Single Review – Countless Thousands – Webster’s Dictionary Defines Marriage As – follow @countless1000s [Video]

Punk purists, or even punk not-so-purists may not be keen on Countless Thousands, a bubble gum punk group from Los Angeles. In point of fact, these pseudo-punks sound more like if every single member of They Might Be Giants came down with a bit of the old brain damage, then copied everything the Foo Fighters ever shat out their b-side catalog. They’re not bad, per se, this overtly heartwarming outfit, they’re just not punk. Countless Thousands are so not bad, in fact that the Kickstarter campaign this year to fund their debut album, You’re Goddamn Right, made three times its goal…

The title track from the aforementioned album, ‘Grow’, is out today and does a great job of showcasing the soulful songwriting of this talented Northern Irish artist.

Spotlight Song of the Day: The Aim – ‘Lion’s Pride’ from album ‘Days Like These’

Influenced by classic British rock, The Aim are an old-school collective of musicians whose new album is already demanding attention of tastemakers at the BBC and beyond. That album, ‘Days Like These’, is a classy, raw throwback to mod rock at its finest, as demonstrated by the excellent video for track ‘Lion’s Pride’ below. If you like what you hear, support independent Brit rock by heading over to their website.

Souleye – ‘Follow Your Heart’

A US artist with an accessible brand of rap and electronica blended together, Souleye is a songwriter with a very positive outlook on life. This positivity comes through in spades throughout his songs, and new single ‘Follow Your Heart’ is no exception. It’s out now on iTunes.

Angie and the Deserters – ‘Forgetting to Forget’ (from ‘You’ EP)

Those with a taste for smooth, folksy Americana music will find a lot to like about US band Angie and the Deserters. Taken from their latest EP ‘You’ (available here), ‘Forgetting to Forget’ is a song that ebbs ad flows from crescendo to crescendo to excellent effect. Featuring the soulfully rasping vocal of Angie Bruyere, the track is a real heartbreaker – just listen to the lyrics and it’s hard to believe you won’t find something in there to relate to.
