Hard to believe this band has been around for 20 years now. The female-fronted Canadian group started with their own self-released album, built up a following and then hit the big time (relatively speaking) when their 2009 album produced several singles that got massive play on the indie airwaves, followed by more success in 2012.

I remember in the mid-80s when RHCP and Fishbone would play every Friday at the Roxy on the (now-gone) Sunset Strip for $4. Back then, who would've thought...

Of Monsters And Men



Of Monsters And Men hail from Iceland and the fact they can't be compared to Bjork/Sugarcubes despite having a female singer is quite refreshing. Their sound has gone from an acoustic-based rock songs to more electronic-oriented pop sound.
