My favorite band from Victoria, British Columbia, Canada, Jets Overhead, has a new album out called Boredom and Joy and it is, as usual, a tasty blend of soft yet powerful indie rock. You can listen to it all on Bandcamp, or here even.

They also have a place where you can submit your own photos for their upcoming video for the song What You Really Want. Check out TellMeWhatYouReallyWant.com and submit your own photo.
