...just who are YOUR tips for Bigger Things in 2010?
No right, no wrong. Just genuinely interested to hear new things.
Thee Fair Ohs
all deserve to be huge in 2010
Wowzers. This is especially rare for me.
I'd really like to see Thee Fair Ohs get in and do some good!
They released their debut album only a few weeks ago.
Copy Haho get big next year.
are really good.
I like them
Three Trapped Tigers seem to go from strength to strength
(my God I actually typed that without thinking of the old Esso advert)
Mat Riviere should do big things if there's some justice.
Girls'll probably be at Brixton before the year's out
We went to an open mic night and there were 3 rappers there that called their act "The Three Rappers" - Want them to do well, only for the name. Not holding my breath.
Can I have them please?
Currently writing a 'trouble with new music' rant, of sorts.
in short, i think the list is reflective of the fact that no-one exceptional with potential is around at the moment, also that very few people are really investing in developing new acts and people write-off acts too early or consider a band gaining any exposure being around for 6months+ to not really be 'new'.
Chairlift to Myanmar
Philomena Frank Lampard
Death of Diana
Muslim and Jew: United By Fate
cracked me up.
I think Joker will get more recognition from outside the scene when his album appears, which will no doubt be next year. He's already starting to make waves in the US too, he'll be producing for top hip-hop artists in no time with his sounds hahah
Darkstar, just because they are insanly talented and I think there album will win them a lot of new fans in indie land. The bits I've heard sound like super dark inventive electro pop. They'll be suporting Radiohead with Mount Kimbie and Hames Blake around stadiums in no time.
But I dunno... I'm not that fussed about BIG, I just want to hear good music.
Thought I was in some kind of timewarp thing back there.
Gerard Dedededededededededepardeiu = best band name ever
Pulled Apart by Horses
Maybe it's just me but I very rarely get truly excited by a brand new band.
Most of the bands I like have tended to get better a few albums in, so for me hearing a debut can sometimes be great (MIA, Elastica, Fuck Buttons, DFA1979) but it's not the be all and end all.
if there is any justice in the world.
don't really understand why she's not in the list
signed to EMI through Bloodshy's production company, with an LP being produced by Paul Epworth and Aeroplane...
unless the album isn't scheduled for release until Jan 2011
I think that 2010 will be the year that cirKus break in the UK (I know they're working hard on it right now)
Finally have an album coming out, I've heard it and it really is fantastic. Don't know when it's going to get released though.
Surfy poppy indie. Can see them being quite big.
in a sounds-like-Modern-Life-Is-Rubbish type way
Thee Fair Ohs
Dinosaur Pile up
As Clair_De_Lune said I think surfy style pop will certainly be interesting for the masses next year.
Dimbleby & Capper
Marina and the Diamonds
Have gone from playing small loft spaces to suddenly packing out larger venues in NYC after a few CMJ appearances. They are several shades of awesome:
