The kids are just nuts about this band...
It took me a while to take to Spoon but I'm finally coming around to them. From Austin, TX, the quartet plays a foot-tapping pop that you'll be singing along to in the car. The band formed in 1994 and Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga, released in July, is their sixth album. Here's their first single off Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga:
And my favorite track:

Apple's rocking some fresh indie music as well to promote the new iPod nano. That catchy pop tune you can't help but like is from Feist.
