Broken Bells – The High Road

Broken Bells is an indie duo featuring artist–producer Danger Mouse (billed by his real name, Brian Burton) and James Mercer, the lead vocalist and guitarist for the Portland indie rock band The Shins.
Unfortunately, VEVO is only available in North America so check out the VIMEO link below if you are afraid to use the power of Google to search for another way to view this rad tune.

Egyptian Hip Hop – Wild Human Child

Neither Egyptian nor hip hop, these four college students are the latest subversive indie pop rock servants to come out of Manchester. Their single “Wild Human Child” and it’s music video were released this week with an album hopefully soon to follow.

Dakota Fanning (feat. Kristen Stewart) – Cherry Bomb

The Runaways were an all-girl teenage rock band that performed in the 1970s. The biopic set for mainstream realease April 9th stars Dakota Fanning as Cherie Currie and Kristen Stewart as Joan Jett. Both starlets have already recieved high praise for pulling off convincing performances. Dakota Fanning who filmed the The Runaways at the age of 15 and Kristen Stewart (age 19) both perform the songs themselves and I have to say they sound very close to the original rock anthem.
