I'm making a CD called "The Ultimate Upbeat Indie Electro Pop Collection" and I need more music for it. I think the title says it all. It should...

  • be dancey and fun
  • mix guitars and keyboards
  • definitely be catchy


Here's what I've got so far:
Azure Ray - New Resolution (Postal Service mix)
The Bravery - Fearless
The Bravery - Honest Mistake
The Bravery - No Brakes
Broadcast - Michael A Grammar
Dandy Warhols - You Were The Last High
Elkland - Apart
Elkland - Everybody's Leaving
The Gritty Midi Gang - (the breakup song)
The Gritty Midi Gang - Labor Day
The Gritty Midi Gang - Leap Day
The Gritty Midi Gang - Valentine's Day
The Postal Service - Such Great Heights

Suggestions? I added links to assist you (and because I'm bored). Thanks.

Any Les Savy Fav song ever written. My favorite album is 3/5, but Go Fourth is definatly the most electro-pop album they have.

MSTRKRFT - any song, but that might be too electro and not enough pop.
The knife - Silent Shout (the song), We share our mothers health
Daft Punk live at coachella has some amazing mixes
Apostle of Hustle - Folkloric feel (maybe too much pop, too little electro... sortof the animal collective of Canada, minus the excessive vocal harmonies.)
Bloc Party - Luno or Like eating glass remixes
Hot Chip - Over and Over, Boy from school, No fit state
Neon Blonde - The Future is a mesh stallion, Headlines, Black Cactus Killers
Ratatat - Seventeen Years, Fix Up look Sharp (dizzee Rascal remix), Hot (Missy Elliot remix)
Sound of Animals Fighting - My Horse Must Lose
The Strokes - Whatever Happened?, Automatic Stop (No keyboards, deal with it.)
Thom Yorke - The Eraser
The Unicorns - Jellybones
Tv on the radio - I was a lover

Just shove on Goose's 'Bring it on' album, or maybe some Junior Boys.

That's when you know you found somebody special. When you can just shut the f*ck up for a minute, and comfortably share silence.

Thanks guys. I'll snag these and see what I think. Whoever gave me bad recommendations will die a bloody death. Not really. But some of you were actually very helpful and I 'preciate it.

Giving me a band name really doesn't help me. Every song by a band isn't their best or their catchiest, so try to give their most popular or most catchy, mmmkay? Thanks.

So Young It Hurts - The Hampdens
They are a small indie band from Aus... Check em out on MySpace.. I dunno if that song is there though. It is on LimeWire though I think

Oh.. and you may hate it, but I love it and I think it fits the description.
Dear Jamie... Sincerely Me - Hellogoodbye
Very... Girly.. is the only word that I can find to describe it. But it reminds me of all the best bubble gum pop from the 90s.

Ladyton, perhaps? Maybe a little more dance-y than you want but some stuff is fantastic. Try: International Dateline, Seventeen, Destroy Everything You Touch

Help She Can't Swim! ANYTHING by them. But especially My Own Private Disco.
And White Rose Movement - Girls in the Back
