Mine is MGMT. Loving their album!
can you just have found them, or do they have to be actually new or what?
I haven't heard enough No Age apart from Boy Void and a few other bits and bobs, BUT: from what i've heard they didnt grab my attention as much as when they where Wives. Are they an intellectual clasic rock band yet? i think i remember reading that was their goal.
not very neu though!
how is that a 'new sound'...really now.
Psych, noise kind of thing..
Spectacular band, terrible name
Amazing canadian act- Think Sufjan crossed with Port O'brien and a bit of african influence (one grew up in nigeria, another in Mali...) oh and throw a bit of grandaddy in to...
I get the feeling they will be signed in the Uk in teh near future.......
which is really good, not very challenging, but really lovely, they sound quite different now.
'crunchy' in a grandaddy type of way...
i've been following them for quite a while now....new album is a stunner. Simon from bella union described it as 'one of my favourite albums...ever'- which says a lot (well it does for me as he put out my faveourite record of all time)
but they're up there.
And in answer to the question about their sound, think Times New Viking but even more stripped down, and a bit more electronicy. Little less fuzzy though, you can hear the vocals better. They've got an evil sense of humour.
From their myspace:
"I never thought I would find the courage to disgrace a complete scene of music, but shitgaze really is abysmal. Another of these silhouettes of shite is ’Psychedelic Horseshit’, I mean seriously which member of the band was drunk when that name was conjured up. ’New Wave Hippies’ sounds like a toddler playing with something that has thousands of buttons. The guitars are scratchy, and deliberately out of tune. It’s almost as if this band has gone out of its way to completely undermine every musical convention every proposed. This band is either a load of idiots on speed who suddenly thought they could play music while tripping, and sounds like a very massive pile of utter drunken shit, or it’s just some very clever chimpanzee’s who’ve evolved and suddenly realise they ’might’ be able to play some music. In one song, ’Bad Vibrations’ the vocalist literally says over and over again ’ahhoooowaaaooo oooo oooo oooooooo’. I’ve actually given up on summing up this utterly pointless way of life. I would rather shave all of the hair off on my body and commit myself to a life of celibacy and become a neo-Nazi. My flat mate has put this review out of its misery and very kindly summed up this entire music scene in two words, ’utter bollocks’."
is it just my browser. odd!
Tremendous live and will give your speakers a good work out.
They are new to me at least
banjo or freakout www.myspace.com/banjoorfreakout
is it just me or do they sound a bit like a
still having a lengthy love affair with this et al's album.
Ghostland observatory. And I am also digging We Are Standard from Spain.
a ghostland observatory song last night. it sounds like hall and oates.
The album I have sounds a bit like the rapture and !!!
Its fucking good, haven't a clue what its called though.
New Bloods, White Lies, Le Club Des Chats.. All great..
but they're getting sick of being told they sound like Pulp crossed with Arcade Fire. They do though. So it's their own fault.
they sound pretty promising
Frightened Rabbit...well apart from the fact they're about to release their second album.
Both are amazing.
favourite song at the minute is two doors down - mystery jets
and various Human Ear related people/projects
Bubonic Plague, Geneva Jacuzzi, Ry Rock, Gary War, etc.etc.etc.
Fanfarlo are nice. Really nice.
I'm not good with 'new' bands. I tend to get 'it' a few months after everyone else. And I also prefer backtracking to find obscure 90s bands.
All 'discovered' this year and looking forward to seeing them later probably at the festivals.
All 3 would be good at Latitude.
"The Shitty Beatles? What are they like?"
"Oh, so it's not just a clever name?"
They are coming to the UK this summer, you should all check them out!
Once they release a full lengthm they will be huge.
1000 robota +++
Definitely Ida Maria...Brilliant
I know not new but Mystery Jets album is the shizzle!
Also check out the Blue Collars! All tracks on their myspace immense
No contest. Not that they're some hip, up and coming indie band, but still.
they are coming to London to play with my band on saturday, I'm very much looking forward to how it sounds live!
Fight Like Apes and The Joy Formidable are probably my favourite this year. I think these myspace addresses are right:
Oh and it's worth listening to 'Jake Summers' by FLA purely for its "you're like Kentucky Fried Chicken but without the taste!" line.
I just listened to them last night for the first time, and in such a short space of time I'm really really liking it.
Butcher the Bar
i just dont get it- they really do sound like "A"
or The Delta Fiasco
their myspace appears to have disappeared but there are some tracks here:
If you like the sound of Japanese folk influenced metal then this is the band for you.
I've only recently discovered them but they're both great.
but I think they have been around too long maybe
make me smile lots.
I fail at this
But Furr is soooooo good.
Beasts And Superbeasts
Zoey Van Goey
and "And so i watch you from afar"
