Versus

There are at least five bands called Versus: 1) New York City indie rock favorites Versus evolved from the remnants of Flower, a band led by singer/guitarist Richard Baluyut. In the final months of Flower's existence, the group was joined by vocalist/guitarist Fontaine Toups, who remained with Baluyut in the short-lived Saturnine before the duo formed Versus (borrowing the name from an LP by Mission of Burma) with Baluyut's brother, Ed.

Some disambiguation. There are several Kites, it seems. 1. Hailing from Castlemaine, Victoria, Austraila. The Kites is a prime example of when three pretty boys come together to write safe revitailist music. With ex Kiwi Travis on Vocals on Guitar, how could you go wrong? 2. New York's Kites a.k.a Jean-Philip Grobler 3. The Kites from Austin, Texas - alt-country-ish. Formed 2005. Members: Levy Johnson writes, sings, plays guitar and piano. John Logan fills in with guitar and harmonies. Cody Johnson provides the thump while Buzzy Wendtland bangs skins.

Loney Dear

Loney Dear is the moniker currently used by multi-instrumentalist and home-recording phenomenon, Emil Svanängen from Jönköping, Sweden. Until 2009, Svanängen recorded and released four records as Loney, dear. In 2009 he slightly changed this name, skipping the comma in Loney, dear. He is now recording and releasing music as Loney Dear. Both names exist on Last.fm, so (for as long as the two are not merged) please try to get this right: it differs per album!

The Royal

This is a band called The Royal. While embers still smoldered, before the oxygen stopped circulating, Chris Moore tapped his own genius to create The Royal. He then recruited others to well-round and to flesh-out the band. These humans are Brittany Crowther, Justin Allen from DJ act Bodywerx, and former Rory bandmates Joel Setzer, Allen Peoples, and Marc Ispass. Excellent style and devilish charm... The Royal.

A Friend In London

Formed at school in 2005, Denmark’s A Friend In London are four talented friends who deftly combine the complex alternative and indie influences of their youth with a boy-band pop sensibility. Tim, Ben, Ash and Seb have all had music in their veins from an early age, and the result is a debut album full of tune after unerringly catchy, rock-influenced tune. With the entire band in their early 20s, they’re as sharply-defined by their instrumental prowess as by their live performances.
