Bands with Ampersands

I found Angus & Julia Stone over at Untitled Records. The Stones are a brother sister duo hailing from Australia. Their song "Silver Coin" exhibits all the features I love in a song, namely strings, melancholy vocals and fabulous violin tuning sounds right at the beginning. If you're looking to listen to a great folksy song, check it out here.

There's also "Bye Bye Bye" by Plants & Animals. They're a Canadian band and the song was featured on Chuck recently, but I only just got around to finding out what it was. It's a pretty amazing song. "Bye Bye Bye" gives you that same sort of awesome feeling that you get when you listen to the Arcade Fire's "Wake Up", which just puts a huge goofy smile on my face anyway. If you too, want to look goofy, you can do so here. In the meantime, I'll embed the video here too, because I wouldn't want your being too lazy to follow the link to keep you from checking it out.
