The Louder Than War! 10 new bands for February”
“New bands february 2012?”

1.  Deadbeat Echoes ”“ Tipped by the main man John Robb a year ago on this very website. Rather than regurgitate the same bands at the time I thought I’d hold off until they had a release ready, and that day is now here with single ”ËœSurge Of Youth’ out next month. Catch them on tour support duties for the newly reformed Inspiral Carpets and on other dates you won’t regret it.. 

2.  Sulk ”“ The indie old schoolers of you that like me, appreciate epic guitar tones inspired by the likes of The Verve and The Brian Jonestown Massacre would do well to get your ears around Sulk.

 3.  TOY ”“ Hyped by the likes of The Horrors and comprising several former members of Joe Lean and The Jing Jang Jong, their free download single is a must listen.

4. Trailer Trash Tracys ”“ I aired single Candy Girl over a year ago now and am actually shocked to see it’s their latest single, but I guess sometimes things take time to get in order for a formal release. Their debut album ”ËœEster’ is finally out and It has been worth the wait 

5.  Womans Hour ”“ It was one of those nights when you turn out early to the eclectic Kraak Gallery to see as you’ve heard a few positive remarks about the support band, who were in this case the aptly named Womans Hour.  Lead singer Fiona has a presence that catches your eye and the music a sound that catches your ear. Dig in.

6.  Ninetails ”“ Such an underrated band that it makes me incensed to write their name everywhere, their new single Rawdon Fever is out any day now on the fresh and happening Superstar Destroyer label..

7. JEFF The Brotherhood  ”“ The brothers Orrall have been going for a decade but are finely getting some media coverage in Europe. With shades of psyche, garage and punk unravelling  to lead my head into a heady zone..

8.   Grimes  ”“If you’re a bit of an indie kid and you took Grimes’ name at face value (like I did) you’d be surprised to hear that its not urban but a marriage of ethereal pop and spacious electronica! 

9.   Damien Jurado  ”“ Another artist that’s been round and about for years but finally finding their footing, Damien Jurado has a cult following in his hometown of Seattle and releases new album Maraqopa on the wonderful Secretly Canadian label. Sharon Van Etten is a fan too..

10. DZ Deathrays ”“ Loud and raw, want to scare your parents? This is the band to help you succeed..
