New York pop-punk dance band Cobra Starship is coming off of its biggest release to date. The group's third album, "Hot Mess," released in 2009 by Decaydance/Fueled by Ramen, debuted at No. 4 on the Billboard 200. But the success came with a price. On Aug. 29, Cobra Starship returns with "Night Shades," arriving on Decaydance/Fueled by Ramen.
Two months ago Little Dragon, an electro indie band from Gothenburg, Sweden, was an underground phenomenon in the US, slowly building a sturdy reputation on word of mouth and small tours based on their 2009 release, "Machine Dreams."
