Blog-achella 08: Man, this is going to take a while...

And now, Coachella brings you another Indie Rock band that has benefited from a solid commercial song placement. What, this song was in a Zune ad? Okay, maybe it wasn't so solid...

Rogue Wave



Who they are: Oakland dude works at dot.com, dot.com eats shit, dude forms band, band does pretty well, dude is still broke but at least he gets pussy now...

What they sound like: Melodic, layered Indie Pop with some Shoegaze-y guitar business. Wait, there's no joke in that sentence...

Rogue Wave - Lake Michigan (ysi)




What I think: Can't hate on these guys, 'cause I really dig this tune. I'll leave the hatin' to the pros...

Kind of a American blue collar version of the Doves. Pretty cool stuff. I do like the resurgence of the 70s classic rock vocal harmonies.
