The Decemberists are an awesome band, namely because of their lead singer/songwriter Colin Meloy. This guy weaves some wonderful harmonies with crazy, historical references. This song, Sixteen Military Wives, "focuses primarily on the news media and popular response to the war, particularly levying criticism at infotainment and the surface-level involvement of celebrities in public affairs." It's cool, and rather catchy.

The Last Shadow Puppets is the brainchild of Arctic Monkeys frontman, Alex Turner, and Miles Cane of the Rascals. It can be argued that they rely mainly on Turner's absurd popularity to parlay this new project towards success, but they have some inherent catchiness, I feel. Have a listen.
