Nightlife: Radio

After their self-titled debut EP, Nightlife fans didn't have to wait long for a new album. Released last October 2011, the musical duo offers Radio, a collection of six glowing synthpop tracks. Meeting in early 2010 at a Michigan show house, Caroline Myrick and Darin Rajabian shared a mutual love for dance and pop-music. The duo soon produced songs that blended Caroline's soft vocals with Darin's classic electro tracks.

We Used To Exist: The Lights May Still Show

We Used to Exist is one of those bands you're lucky to come across in your search for awesome indie pop music online. The Lights May Still Show is the first album for the duo and it's sounding like a promising electro pop compilation. Made up of Timothy Lalonde and Dean Rostron, the two had to meet from across two different continents to record the album. They're currently based in Berlin, Germany and even though they are fairly new (just formed back in September 2011) the band is proving that they are worth watching out for.

City of Glass: The Diving Bell EP

City of Glass easily captures that thin line between super pop and indie rock. Their sound is enveloped with almost everything that makes you want to dance around, head bob, stomp your feet and love indie pop rock even more. This Canadian duo have had a successful debut with their EP Equations, leading them to tour the Canadian circuit quite extensively. To gear up for their full length debut, they've released this teaser EP of sorts, The Diving Bell. Filled with 4 indie dance rock cuts, it's an EP worth listening to and checking out.

The Bonny Situation: Robot Says I Love You

Taking their name from the iconic movie Pulp Fiction, The Bonny Situation has definitely got one of the coolest names any indie film geek will recognize. The band itself is from Germany and have been around since 2007 with a slightly different lineup back then. Although the band admits that their sound is mostly consists of pop music, they do like to mix it up a bit; adding a little alternative and even new wave in there. Robot Says I Love You is a 2010 release from the group. Most of the tracks on the record were inspired by the contents of a 1978 diary from someone with the initials R.B.T.

JoJo: Can’t Take That Away From Me

The once young JoJo is now a woman and she proves it in her beautifully composed and executed album, Can’t Take That Away From Me. Exclusively released last September 2010 to Rap-Up.com, this free mixtape is a prelude to the singer’s third album formerly entitled All I Want Is Everything. The said album was then released as Jumping Trains under BlackGround records due to a misunderstanding with the songbird’s former record label.

The Freak Fandango Orchestra: Tales Of A Dead Fish

Making their second appearance here in Frostclick, the gypsy folk, Barcelona band are back with a new record. The Freak Fandango Orchestra is an energetic and quirky bunch of musicians who like to play fun and unusual music.

For their latest release, Tales of a Dead Fish, they retain their crazy upbeat sound, still incorporating humor, superb instrument work and a very catchy beat to every single one of their cuts.
