Sing, Sing a Song Saturday

Sing, Sing a Song Saturday is all about me discovering something that is different to post. I don't want to post things that you and I have more than likely heard before. I want to find something different. It could be from another country, someone singing from the streets of NY, and more.

I'm featuring Manchester Orchestra today. Have you ever heard of them? I have to be honest, I have heard of them, but I have never heard them.

They are an American indie rock band from Atlanta, Georgia. The band started in 2004. I lived in Pine Lake, Georgia, which is just outside Atlanta in 2001. Apparently I missed them.

The band's name is after the English city Manchester, which is where a lot of really good bands are from: The Smiths, Oasis and more.

They've been featured on  a lot of late night shows, and TV shows.

I picked them because I just love the video, and song Simple Math.

Shake it Out

That "sound" is so much like the British bands from the early and mid sixties. Sounds like the "Birds".

Que Triste! The bear got her boyfriend!

Very cool - and very different. I had not heard of them before, but then again,. I don't watch late night tv anymore ;)

Simply amazing Alissa, thanks for sharing!

That sound is a little hard for me. Perfect for my daughter. I'm going to ask her if she knows them.

I have never heard of the Manchester Orchestra. It kind of reminds me of hard rock.

This group is new to me but I like songs that really tell a story - so thanks for sharing. I like learning about new groups and different kinds of music and this one was great.

Happy St, Patrick's Day!

Never heard of Manchester Orchestra, but I love to hear about new music for me to check out.

Rock on!

Well...I don't think I have ever heard of them before now. So, this was a nice introduction. Simple Math is my favorite pick of your song selections. I will definitely look at other tunes by this group. It's great to have you on the dance floor with the Monday's Music Moves Me crew. Happy St. Patty's Day! ;)

Theresa Mahoney said...

Shake It Out sounds a like like the punk bands my daughter is really into lately. I bet she would love this band!

XmasDolly said...

All new to me, but you're definitely rockin' the house! That first video was a tad weird don't you think? hehehe Thanks for joinin us! YOU ROCK

Catch My Words said...

Simple Math is a great song with an interesting video. It's one of those that needs some deep thinking to figure out the not so hidden messages. "What if what I said was wrong?" But what a way to show it!

I like your style, but share what you love always :) We are not snobs :)

These are new and very interesting!

Thanks for rocking and have a great week!

Happy St. Patrick's Day!
