Calexico - Para

Tucson dudes Calexico are back with a beauty of a song. Para is taken from the upcoming Calexico album 'Algiers' out on September 7th. Must have in your music collection.

Serj Tankian - Figure It Out

System of a Down boss Serj Tankian still is a winner. Great song. New album Harakiri will be released in October.

Muse - Survival

The official song for the London Olympics 2012. Not the official vid though ;) And the song? Is it Muse or Queen?

Last Dinosaurs - Andy

In a Million Years is the title of their debut album. Australian outfit. It's one of those hip new young charismatic indie dance bands coming up.

POLIÇA - Dark Star

Listen to the hypnotic voice of Channy Leaneagh. She's part of Ryan Olson's psychedelic R&B project POLIÇA. Released some months ago, but it has got a summer touch, so let's push it again. Dark Star is taken off of POLIÇA's debut record, "Give You The Ghost".

The Hickey Underworld - The Frog

Can't help it. Again it's Belgium. New video Hickey Underworld: The Frog. Taken from the album "I'm Under The House, I'm Dying". Yes!

Wallace Vanborn - Found in LA

This rocks like Triggerfinger. Stoner rockers from Belgium Wallace Vanborn made a great record: Lions, Liars, Guns & God. Listen to the single Found in LA and conclude (again): the Belgians rule!

Willem stops writing for Earbiter

Thanks for lending your ears all those years. Thank you for following me and our blog. First with HomeOfTheHits. Then Earbiter. After 6 years of discovering on a daily base new bands I'm going to stop for a long period posting on Earbiter. I discovered my love for jazz, funk and other old & cool music. And I want to write a book.

With Maarten in the lead this blog Earbiter will continue posting good stuff. No worries. And I will go on discovering new bands and collecting rare and old vinyl. You can follow my latest purchases on a weekly base on my other music blog:

Rare Record Reporter.


Some coded text in Dutch.

Voor alle muziekvrienden, de happy few, die door de jaren heen genoten hebben van mijn maandelijkse MP3's in hun mail... Oorbijters Best Juni zal deze maand voor het laatst in je mail verschijnen. Ik eindig met een persoonlijke top 25 door alle jaren heen.

Futures - Karma Satellite

This could be a smash hit. Futures know how to make a good alternative rock song. Choir included! First single from 'The Karma Album'.

Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs - Stronger

Orlando Higginbottom is my main man lately. His debut album TEED is going to be a fresh British dance experience. Very 80's, some electro but still warm and close.

The Vaccines - No Hope

They're back: the hype of 2011. But What Did You Expect From the Vaccines indeed was a great album and their songs are catchy as hell. New song & video is No Hope. New album will be released in July: The Vaccines Come Of Age.

The Rocket Summer - Revival

Bryce Avary is an American multi-instrumentalist, singer-songwriter, and producer. The Rocket Summer is a solo project. Revival is the second song of album Life will write the words. Hit potential, no doubt.

Jack White - Sixteen saltines

Wow. Jack White rules my stereo. Sixteen saltines. 16 crackers. Whatever. Great clip. Wow.

The head and the heart - River and roads

For those who love folky singersongwriter stuff live with a guitar, three singers and a sweet song.

Bloody Beach - Gonzo Blues

What a great song. What a great band. What a great future. Indiedance act from Norway.

Kids these days - Darling

Dutch band 'De jeugd van tegenwoordig' got themselves a 8 men jazzy & funky orientated brotherband from Chicago. Some rap, some blues, some 'Cake', no genre is their genre. A three horn section, I love it.

2:54 - You're Early

What the fog? This is a good one. Band from London (sisters Hannah and Colette Thurlow) with a song that is actually longer than 2.54. Bad joke, I know. Great song, this dark tune!

The Walkmen - Heaven

American indie rockers known for songs as Angela Surf City. New album & single are called Heaven. Pitchfork rated the album 8.1, and Stereogum called it the second best album of the year. The song Heaven indeed is a great indie song. Love the video as well. It will put a smile on your face.
