ADALITA rock band cool instumental. singer's voice a bit strange but kinda soothing and nice to listen too. laid back music you can listen to in the packground that feeds your want for rock.

GOTYE alternative band sound pretty alternative. fast paced tempo. a little echo which is annoying but there's only a little of it. i like the singer's voice. many different styles with every song seemingly different. im a bit on the fence if i like them or not..... 3.65/5 band that sing 'somebody that i used to know'.

GYROSCOPE rock band another new rock band that isnt full on. i like them too. nice to listen too. 4.5/5

SARA BAREILLES pop artist like missy higgins style. pretty ok but not amazingly sticking out to me. 3.5/5
DARREN CRISS alternative artist he is off glee and i really like him so i looked up if he had any songs not affiliated with glee which he does. they are pretty calming but kinda strange but good..... nice for a relaxing bacground. quite slow and soft songs. 3.5/5
THE FRIDAY NIGHT BOYS alternative band i would say they're more pop than alternative. i like them. they just have a kinda good feel... for something that sounds so pop-py. kinda remind me of good charlotte but in a more juvenile time. ok now they sound like jonas brothers cross good charlotte..... theyre ok as i keep listening.... 3.5/5
CUTE IS WHAT WE AIM FOR alternative band they too also sound pop-py. slightly less juvenile but still near that phase... i like them more... 3.85/5
NEON HEART (2012) rock band really beated and modern band intertwing some classic sounds and reminising roots and kinda reminds me of 'rock of ages' (movie) (song 'ready aim fire'). some slower sweeter songs. they just dont go into screamo. 4.75/5
RUSH rock band old school rock band with songs to dearly match. love how classic it is and it's cheerful spring. 4.5/5
LYNYRD SKYNYRD rock band old rock band also with slower yet still beated songs and some faster ones. nice to listen to sometimes. 3.95/5
P.O.D. (PAYABLE ON DEATH) rock band i really like them. they're more modern with punky sort of rock. their beat and instrumental backing is awesome. it is really good because they dont go into screamo which could suit their music but they keep it in the realm of normal singing which is great. 4.45/5
NEON TREES alternative band really good with a different voice thaqt just doesnt annoy but gives the good original sound. fun songs with a vibrant beat and backing. 4.75/5
ALL TIME LOW alternative band more pop-py and younger innocence than the other artists ive been finding throughout the month but they're still pretty good. like green day -ish crossed with maybe hot chelle ray...?...... rocky and positive sound with good backbeat and fun sound. 4.35/5
YELLOWCARD alternative band really good positive backbeat as well. similar to 'all time low' and really good. 4.35/5
30 SECONDS TO MARS alternative band i have heard of them before and heard some of their songs but never looked into them til now. i like them. they have some cool louder more vibrant songs then calmer stranger ones. but they are pretty cool except for the songs where it is just random background music and no lyrics, that annoys me. 3.65/5
BURN SEASON alternative band i dont like how it feels like they are just about to go screamo and dip into the pool for a second. their songs are fine and i like the beat. 3.45/5
THEORY OF A DEAD MAN rock band pretty good songs. rock and good back beat and music. dude's voice is pretty good. no real annoying aspects except when they do the muffled kind of singing bit in sections of the song ('head above water'). more disrespectful songs than nickelback. they should not have crossed that line i dont like them now. kinda pathetic unoptimistic filthy person look on life (song 'gentleman'). lower score now. 3.35/5
AUGUSTANA rock band i like their sound. kind of like train or the fray crossed with someone i cant pinpoint... his voice is a little annoying when he goes high is a nasally sort of whiny tone. but i love the songs and the musicians in the background. 3.85/5
MERCY FALL rock band like their songs kinda but the singers voice is a bit too deep and has an annoying tone. 3/5
SEVEN AND THE SUN rock band they are pretty good with pretty good songs. 3.75/5
MATT WOODS rock artist he is pretty good. that rock tone but in a soft and soulful sort of tone. maybe like vonray crossed with ed sherran. maybe. ...... . he isnt thrilling me but it is nice to listen to. 4/5
MARTINA MCBRIDE country artist i like her and have loved the emotion behind her song 'concrete angel'. she is kinda like taylor swift but more natural to the country root rather than vearing into the pop genre. 3.95/5
SCORPIONS rock band i like rock bands but beside the song 'rock you like a hurricane' they dont thrill me much. 2.85/5
LIFEHOUSE pop alternative band from california it doesnt seem like pop to me and it has a cool calm yet slightly different edge to it which i enjoy and could really get used to. 4.35/5
FALLING IN REVERSE rock post-hardcore band i like them alot and really got into their songs until i hit screamo bits. 3.5/5 i just cant stand screamo for of singing. everything else was great except that awful sreamo sound pollution.

FIVE FOR FIGHTING alternative band i know them for their song 'superman it's not easy' which i love. they sing slow songs and listening through their album now they are ok. 3.5/5
SCARS AND SOUVENIRS rock band they are guitary and have good background foundation. i really like their first impression they kinda remind me nickleback. kind of like nickleback crossed with daughtry. 4.85/5
JOHN POWELL he is a composer for movies including: ice age, the lorax, kung fu panda, how to train your dragon, happy feet, evolution, xmen, bourne identity and supremacy and many more. he has done the music that for some of my favourite movies and the background music sets the tone, feel and connection with the film so he is awesome. 5/5
PATRICK DOYLE aother composer who did harry potter and the goblet of fire and brave. both great movies! the fact that he does those movies and has such different sounds is awesome :) 5/5
JULIE FOWLIS singer/ songwriter from scotland. even though majority of her songs arent in english they still have a soothing and invigorating tone and i just love her voice. so calming....... i could just listen to her and let all my stress and worries just slip away...... 5/5
THE RUBENS rock band 3/5 they are a featured album on itunes among ones i recognise so i listened to them but im not that interested. theyre ok but a bit boring to me.
BUVA pop band 2/5 a bit bad strange on sound its too highish with slight whine sort of tone i just am not clicking with it even slightly.
BLISS N ESO hip hop/rap and theyre aussie! 4.5/5 for the rap side of music i quite enjoy the attitudes and stories woven through their songs. i dont know if it's cheating because ive enjoyed the song 'family affair' for a while and recognise a couple other songs.
DAUGHTRY rock and aussie 5/5 ive been in love with the song 'it's not over' for some time so ive looked into them and i love them!
TRAPT rock (with a bit extra hardcore boarding on screamo but not crossing the line) first impression they're pretty good. more intense than the other rock bands ive looked at. i like them. just have to wathc out for the close screamo boarder. 4/5
OF MONSTERS AND MEN alternative band indie folk band from iceland 4.9/5 i recently heard of them within the previous two months after their hit 'little talks'. looking into them i like their different feel. it is calming with a calming burst of originality and the feeling of true absract artistic expressionism through their songs.
WALK THE MOON alternative indie rock band from ohio 3.85/5 it is nice to listen to i just dont 'click' with it but it is still good :)
MUTEMATH alternative rock band from new orleans usa. 4.85/5 i feel like ive heard their songs before but i dont recall ever hearing the name of the band. i really like them! it clicks and they have a soft rock backing accompanied by softer lyrics.
SCOUTING FOR GIRLS pop band 3.85/5 they are pretty good except for a few speech accents i dont like and they repeat some words a couple of times in a row during a few songs which is one of the main reasons i hate the generic mainstream music these days. kinda has a background beat like the wombats songs... kinda starting to like it less and less as i listen... could be the touchy pissed off mood im in...
SMALL MERCIES rock band originated in brisbane. aussies represent! 4.9/5 i really like its beat and fast paced guitar and backbeat tone. soothing in my pissed of mood. sounds like they're about to go into screamo but they dont and i like the fact that they dont cross that dreadful line. loving it the more i listen. feels kinda classic and reminds me of the movie 'rock of ages'
and just for fun DEAN GEYER hot aussie boy found on australian idol. i already know of him but i love him so i thought id add it :) 5/5 :)
FOREIGNER new york rock band started in the 70s still going strong 4.75/5 they sing juke box hero!!! out of rock of ages!! instant love. they are rock and upbeat and just have a pumped fun classic rock age feel that fills the air... i dont know if it's cheating considering ive heard of them before now......
THE SUNDANCE KIDS an aussie rock band from adelaide 4.25/5 im getting a good first impression of great songs you can just have there as backgroud music with a calming tone to keep you awake during the slums of homework oppression.
BEN HOWARD a pommy singer songwriter a really soothing voice and tone that allows you to just flow and go into a state of relaxation and just float in the pool of sound. 3.75/5
SPIRIT an american jazz/rock/psychadelic band formed in the 60s 3.25 i like some of the songs but some are off. (fav song 'animal zoo')
YOUNG THE GIANT an alternative music band - american indie rock band 3/5 i like them for smooth music with some attitude with it for easy and relaxing listening but the sound may be just the slightest bit off... probably depends on my mood
DAKONA alternative band from canada 3.75/5 they have a more upbeat and calmly sense with good lyrics but some songs i dont like and in my mood i just found it painful to listen too.
