Vinny has been spending his well-earned time scouring the world of music (myspace) and he’s found you this gem:

The Envy Corps

These Iowan indie rockers have finally arrived onto the British airwaves, appearing on MTV2 with their new single, Story Problem.

With two single releases and another album release (Dwell) on the way, this band is tipped for big things. Offering a refreshing take on the indie genre, The Envy Corps manage to blend shimmering guitar parts and danceable drum lines with uplifting consequences, which have drawn comparison to Modest Mouse and Radiohead amongst others.

Currently on their headlining US tour for Dwell (which is out April 28th on Vertigo Records), we can expect to hear more from these guys in the summer.

Other News, Yeah?

In other news, we received the Does It Offend You, Yeah? album in the post today (finally) and it’s an outstanding album. They’ve kept the (nu-)rave sound from the earlier singles throughout, and added more pop sensibilities in the newer songs. This year’s Klaxons? Maybe not, but nothing could make us more excited about seeing them do it live next week, check back for a review of that, and check them out on their UK tour if you can.
