Mind Over Matter
Young the Giant
Young the Giant have become one of my favorite groups, and they don't get nearly enough credit. Mind Over Matter is a great album, and their other two records are great as well.
Viva La Vida Or Death And All His Friends
Coldplay gets a lot of hate, but I love their music and lyrics. Then again, I'm a hopeless romantic. Viva is Coldplay at their best. See them live if you can.
What Went Down
You should check out all of their music, but What Went Down is a great starting point for Foals. They started back in 2005 in the UK and have been slowing bleeding into America. They are probably in my top 5 new groups of the past decade or so. Be sure to check out Birch Tree and Lonely Hunter.
