Care Bears on Fire - "Everybody Wants to Rule the World"

I have a longstanding rule that I will tend to like anything that's a 2 minute punk cover of pop. Live & studio versions of the cover by the Brooklyn-based CBoF. Yeah, it was used on the credits of the True Blood episode of the same name.

newmusicmonday #108:: Veronica Falls

Veronica Falls (London, UK) was a suggestion through Last.fm. I'm not sure why I'm using Last.fm these days instead of Pandora, but there you go. Veronica Falls serves up indie pop that has a tinge of 90s alternative, evoking (to me, at least) DC's Velocity Girl. Shedding the darker, gothic sound of their eponymous debut album, their 'Waiting for Something to Happen' has nice pop hooks and keen sensibilities. They're playing in NYC at the Bowery Ballroom [$15] this Friday with the shoegazey LA band, Cold Showers.
