Empire of the Sun – “Walking on a Dream”

I first heard this song while sitting around bored at a Forever 21. I generally don’t like the music they play at stores like that but this song was super infectious. It’s the kind of song where once it gets stuck in your head, it’ll stay there for a while.

White Rabbits – “The Plot”

This is probably one of the most energetic White Rabbits songs around. It’s off Fort Nightly. Although that’s their first album, I am less familiar with it since I only discovered White Rabbits recently.  Alexander does the main vocals on this one. It starts out with just guitar and drums then the vocals come then the piano and then finally the bass kicks in. The whole song has a driving, urgent sound to it that just makes me want to move.

Cafe Tacuba – “Volver A Comenzar”

In case you don’t know, Cafe Tacuba is probably the best rock band to ever come out of Mexico. This song has a nice dance beat to it but there are enough changes involved to keep it interesting. This song came out a few years ago on SINO but I pretty much neglected that album until recently.
