Participatory Thread: New Music
I was just kvetching on Facebook about not having a whole lot of time to find new bands I could like, and then I smacked my head and went, duh, I have tens of thousands of people to recommend music to me.
So: Hey what newer bands are you listening to these days? Share a link, and explain why they work for you.
Caveat: By “newer band” I mean bands/artists who either formed or started recording in the last five years or (if you can’t manage that) who formed/started in the last decade but have only become well-known in the last two or three years.
I make this note because if I don’t at least some of you will come at me with your favorite band from when you went to high school in the 70s/80s/90s/whenever. No. I assure you if the band formed before 2003 I already know about it.
Second caveat: Mention as many bands as you like, but maybe put in one band per post, because if you put in too many links in a single post it’ll get booted into my moderation queue.
To get you started: Birdy, covering “The District Sleeps Alone Tonight” by The Postal Service. Because it’s pretty. Enjoy.
