Passionate, heart-rending British pop group whose sweet melodies and swooning lyrics made them one of the biggest bands of the new millennium. ~ Rovi
It’s too facile to call the Black Keys counterparts of the White Stripes: they share several surface similarities -- their names are color-coded, they hail from the Midwest, they’re guitar-and-drum blues-rock duos -- but the Black Keys are their own distinct thing, a tougher, rougher rock band with a purist streak that never surfaces in the Stripes....
While Cage the Elephant wrap bluesy Zep-and-Stones rock riffs around sly urban dance beats in a manner that would make a 1990s Madchester mother proud, the five-member band is actually from the American heartland: Bowling Green, Kentucky to be specific....
The gritty English trio Band of Skulls craft bluesy and ballsy slabs of atmospheric indie rock that echo the work of contemporaries like the Kills, Duke Spirit, and the Black Keys. Formed by Russell Marsden (guitar and vocals), Emma Richardson (bass and vocals), and Matt Hayward (drums) while attending college in the city of Southampton, the band (which was originally called Fleeing New York) recorded a buzz-worthy demo in 2008, which resulted in its full-length debut album, Baby Darling Doll Face Honey in 2009 and an accompanying international tour....
Led by vocalist Elijah Jones, the Constellations specialize in eclectic, rhythmic electro-rock that recalls the sounds of Beck, Gnarls Barkley, and the Heavy. The Atlanta-based collective features a rotating lineup of local pop, hip-hop, and rock musicians, several of whom -- including Cee-Lo and rapper Asher Roth -- contributed to the band’s debut album, Southern Gothic....

Formerly known as the Jakes, Young the Giant began making eclectic indie rock in Irvine, CA, where bandmates Sameer Gadhia (vocals), Jacob Tilley (guitar), Eric Cannata (guitar), Payam Doostzadeh (bass), and Francois Comtois (drummer) all met each other during high school....
