"Music is the art which is most nigh to tears and memory" Oscar Wilde
This blog has one purpose only...to promote new and exciting music...
Music is the ultimate narcotic---- it leaves you always craving and never satisfied...you always want more!!
Therefore, here is new music that I am loving or just getting into...and you should give it a try too...
Some of it may have been around for a while but is only just getting recognition or it is from other countries, as I am based in the UK.
New bands that I have recently gotten into A LOT are Pull Tiger Tail, Dan Le Sac vs Scroobius Pip and Jack Penate.
Pull Tiger Tail are a three piece from London, who used to share a flat with the Klaxons, who do alternative indie rock stuff with soul and pop influences, with great singalong tracks like 'Lets Lightning' and 'Loki, God Of Mischief'. They are going to take off this year, having recieved play on various Radio stations and music TV, like MTV2.
They are doing plenty of gigs in the next couple of months, so try and go see them!
Dan Le Sac vs Scroobius Pip are a band whose single, 'Thou Shalt Always Kill' is tearing up Youtube, Radio 1 and various formats. Its blatant mocking of various styles, scenes and groups embedded in its simple structure is ensuring its gonna be a surefire hit.
Finally, Jack Penate has been around for a fair bit and I first got into his music via Myspace around a year ago but only know is he finally getting the recognition he deserves. He is a solo artist on the Young Turks Label and his awesome dancing style and rockabilly tunes are incredible and should be spread everywhere! 'Spit At Stars', 'Learning Lines' and 'We Will Be Here' are his standout tracks.
Finally, a couple of bands who are also on the rise and should be checked out are the unusual and intriguing Bolt Action Five (http://www.myspace.com/boltactionfive) and The Flight of the Conchords, who have been around for ages but are worthy of listening to as their comedy folk rock is absolute genius (http://www.myspace.com/conchords).
