TBE Digest 12 – 8.25.10 [Civil Civic, The Knocks, Wale, Pete Yorn, Weezer, Passion Pit, …]

A month away from high speed internet will do a lot to a man so while I readjust myself to city living let me drop this round of Digest jams on you. Some of them aren’t the most timely but thankfully you understand. Some great tracks in here! Nice to see new freshness from Civil Civic, Young Empires, and The Knocks. Plus Passion Pit cover Smashing Pumpkins? Hot dog! Rock on and drop a thought in the comments!

For more jams or by any of these artists use the ‘tags’ links at the bottom of the post!

YOUNG EMPIRES RAIN down awesome nuggets OF sonic GOLD

up in the mountain, down in the plain, this hunting game is burning in flame

♫ Young Empires – Rain of Gold (Demo)

(Taken down at the band’s request. Their EP is coming out soon!)

Yes! Yes! Yes! This is it people, right here! Young Empires may be from  Toronto, Canada, but they have smashed this one out of the sweaty-dance-party-on-the-beach park! Ride that magic flute on epic waves of rhythm! Let the guitar licks splash in your face as you sing along and think about how awesome life is! I couldn’t think of a better visual to go with this jam! And it’s only a demo? Are they kidding us? Please sir, may I have some more?
