Delta Spirit: A California based band that is taking over my itunes. I heard their single on the radio the other week and fell in love. They have a beach pop/rock sound mixed with a typical indie sound. These westerners have three albums, their latest released in 2012. If you like Dr. Dog, Deer Tick, or Cold War Kids check this band out. I will be seeing them this year at Bonnaroo listen to their new single California and you will be there too.

No.: If you like the National you will love this band, you will love them because they sound almost exactly like them. They have a happier sound than the National but their singers have very similar voices. These Stay with Me is a haunting song that I cannot get out of my head. Make sure to listen to their EP Don’t Worry, You’ll Be Here Forever, which now available for free on their website http://www.nomusicfor.me/. They are based out of California and all their tour dates are on the west coast but I am hoping they make the trip to the southeast soon.
Wavves: This california dude sounds like he is recording straight out of a garage that looks out on the west coast. Songs about the beach and california culture fill his albums. If Best Coast was a boy she would sound just like Wavves. He has appropriately played with Best Coast and has become one of my favorite summer artists. On this dreary day, I am obviously dreaming about sitting on the california coast listening to this beach rock.
