Name That Tunesmith

I'm a big fan of "alternative music". That means I'm an aging hipster who is a sucker for any new band marketed as being "edgy" while still providing me basic guitar-bass-drums-vocals power pop with catchy hooks and oh-so-arch lyrics. Hell, I made it to Coachella this year. I'm a prisoner of twee.

Last year, I mistook several bands because I thought their names sounded the same:

The Shins
The Hives
The Vines
The Wrens
The Cribs
The Dregs
The Dears
The Kills
The Field

I swear some days I can't tell my Ra Ra Riot from my Gang Gang Dance, or my Cut Copy from my Cut Chemist...
