Finn Riggins/ Vs. Wilderness

Indie-Rock, experimental, post-punk. Very cool unique mix of funky rhythms guitar, maybe some organs, synths, and vocals. Finn Riggins is an experimental indie rock trio with elusive influences, but commonly drawing comparisons to mish-mashes of artists like Talking Heads, Sonic Youth, The Clash, Rush, Broken Social Scene, Architecture in Helsinki, Pink Floyd. No FCCs as far as I can tell.
Try 3, 5, 6, 8, 10

1. instrumental, synth-y opening 2. alt-rock harsher sound 3. ***more funky sound, off-kilter beat, fun female vocals, faster guitar 4. fast drums, blend of vocals, honking guitar with a good dose of distortion 5. ****slower track nice guitar, lighter vocals, xylophone, marimba undertones? 6. **** upbeat, lively guitar and vocals. very catchy! reminds me of Arcade Fire here 7. faster, lots of guitar, upbeat, launches into guitar solo 8. *** awesome, funky guitar, catchy, nice beat 9. slightly slower, whiny melodies 10. ***funky synth intro nice instrumental fade in to lo-fi, semi-psychedelic sound melancholic “ooh’s” later on, really quiets down at end
