Band: The Joy Formidable
Why: If this song sound familiar, it was used for this video (not sure if this is NSFW, but let's say Parental Advisory for subject matter at least) that was making the rounds on the intertubes in April.
I had originally stumbled across the song in February and besides thinking "damn that's catchy' (always a good start) I couldn't help but notice how the bass line is strikingly similar to Mahogany's song One Plus One Equals Three or More from 2004, which of course is probably inspired by a 20 year old song that I'm blissfully unaware of. Regardless, the other Joy Formidable songs are equally great and worth checking out.
Anyhow they're doing the remix thing with their songs here and recommend the following bands: Half Tiger and the awesomely named Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs
