Ever since a friend sent me "Little Talks" by Of Monsters and Men, I have been hooked. Listen to that song here. Recently I saw this live rendition of "Your Bones" on the Subreddit /r/ListenToThis over on reddit and really enjoyed it. /r/Listentothis is a great place to find out about some new music that isn't that mainstream. Hipster points! If you are into Indie Folk music, such as Mumford & Sons, be sure to have a listen.
Of Monsters and Men is an Icelandic band from, get this, Iceland. They speak perfect English, most likely better than me, or yous. So don't worry about having to speak Icelandic, or whatever ever crazy stuff they speak over there. Check out their Facebook, Twitter, and Myspace where you can listen to their music. This is also their website, http://ofmonstersandmen.is/ (The '.is' stands for "Is from Iceland". The more you know!).

This past weekend Neil Young had a benefit concert for Bridge School that was streamed live on Youtube. It included acts from Tim Reynolds & Dave Matthews, Arcade Fire and more. I found out about half way through this was going on, and you could have too if you followed us on Twitter (wink wink). After talking to my friend about the live stream I reazlied how terrible it was of me to know little of Neil Young and his music, so for about the past 24 hours I have listened to plenty of Neil Young's stuff on Youtube. Here is a live version of "Old Man," one of my favorites.

This video was apparently taken in November of 2004 at a small venue in Milwaukee, Wisconsin just two months after the dropping of their debut album Funeral. The video is not of the greatest quality and is for some reason black and white but it's still pretty cool. Below is "Neighborhood #3 (Power Out)" (which made Anton's top 230 songs of all time), "Wake Up" and links to the rest of the 11 total tracks. Enjoy!
