New Discoveries for 05 in 06.

I have finished compulsively scouring the web for good new music for today.
Here, the fruits of my labor. If you've already heard of any of these folks, kudos, i'm sure you're incredibly good-looking.

The Mini Band are from West Chester, PA. It appears that they started out as something of a novelty, playing only miniature instruments. But their talents got the best of them, and their music, while not un-novel, is certainly no longer a novelty. Check out this hard little jam, especially the little spy-movie breakdown bridge.
Mini Band - Down the Tube
Buy it!

Elizabeth, from Vancouver, BC, create dark new wave-inflected stuff. They have already toured extensively with a host of big names, in spite of having only just released their debut EP.
Elizabeth - War is Beautiful
Buy it!

Finally, from Austin, TX, comes Sound Team, who recently finished a tour with Mazarin. They make dreamy distorganated disco. Very nice.
Sound Team - Don't Turn Away
Buy it!

    Mini band is more prog than I would expect from you. Slint's Not Dead! Amazing lyric - "The hills are alive with the sound of fusion."
