jj released jj no2 in '09, didn't they? Hm.
But I'm being told otherwise now.
Marina was releasing singles over a year ago. JJ are on their second album. The Drums seem like they've been getting on my tits for the past three years. I could go on but it's too early!
Trash Talk and Jay Electronica have been going for years...
Yes, I've heard of at least 4 of these bands...
Boy does it feel good to have my finger on the pulse.
and yeah its not 'new' in the literal sense, it's artists who have made big strides in 2010
Christ on a bike do bands get limper and limper by the year – no cock and balls to be found anywhere. That was just wave after wave of whimsy and echoey vocals.
Who would ever have predicted that in the year 2010 the majority of bands would take their influence from a mixture of Yanni and the Seasame Street theme?
really are shite...
Cerebral Ballzy? - I imagine that goes down great at gigs - "Hi, we're ..."
Seems in pretty bad taste to me...
And how long til' the headline - "Why Yuck suck..."
trashy, over-the-top thrash metal.
Also, best band name ever.
Not sure what you've got against Sleigh Bells.
Cerebal Ballzy are a bratty punk band. Fits their sound.
is the best band name of the last decade.
That was Vaginal Cancer...
according to Lucien, who I'm sure was spot on in his assessment.
Is that what passes for "trashy, over-the-top metal" these days then, eh?
I've been around for centuries. They call me Jesus in some parts...
I have a lot of time for the Smith Westerns, Best Coast, Sleigh Bells and Dom. But most of the rest need to be put in the stocks and pelted with fusty fruit
when you could listen to some tired sixties rehash from Best Coast.
Because good music always has to be aggressively masculine. Such a retarded thing to say.
I don't think that at all, and I didn't even say it. What I did say, is that - especially for a list that comes courtesy of a rag with a history like NME - there's an overwhelming amount of echoey, slow tempo, minor key guff. I expected more variety, that's all
they have a lot of potential
