UNDER THE RADAR: The Vliets - "God's Drug"

UNDER THE RADAR: The Vliets is a four-piece band from Dallas. They make music we wish people could still make by pulling from elements of classic rock, psych rock, and psych folk to the point that their music doesn’t belong in this era and is timeless.

NME 50 Best Albums Of 2012 | SongsSmiths | Scoop.it

Music so weird it made us question whether it was even music. After countless hours of in-office arguing, we've boiled the lot of it down to the 50 choicest cuts of 2012.

UNDER THE RADAR: Panda Riot - "Motown Glass"

UNDER THE RADAR: This quartet is one of the leaders in Chicago’s emerging dreampop scene. Melodic landscapes of keyboards, tambourines and drum machines paired with pop guitars are reminiscent of The Postal Service, but Panda Riot, with its ethereal female vocalist, is void of the rainy-city melancholia the former evokes.
