more new band tips

Some of the bands are less new than others but with this being our first month, we want to shout about the bands we’ve been following for the past few months.
But it’s more than bands, there’s one-off tunes that we can’t even fit into the list. There’s loads of great mental sounding dubstep tunes that slip in and out of the ether, snatches of great sound and mad beats in clubs that tear past – how do we list those?
57 to start, in no particular order:

1. Deadbeat Echoes – classic northern guitar band with experimental twist and love of the Standells and punk rock- interesting mix link link
2. Fraser King – like no other band on the planet. Doo wop meets new folk meets intense punk rock meets eccentric genius with attitude. Will be massive. http://www.myspace.com/frazerking
3. Mothercoat – genius twisted Japanese band who manage to cram free jazz hardcore and pristine beach Boys style melodies all into the same song. http://www.myspace.com/mothercoat

  1. WHYRL… straight outa manc… look on myspace music… WHYRL is legendary dance/hiphop producer Carl Adesile, unlegendary yoko Ono/nitin Sawheny collaborator Geo and Bavarian pianist Cassian… their album “Time In Effect” is rapadelic… Manchunia’s best kept secret…

  2. It’s great to see so many varied bands around…and it’s probably a great time to catch some of these bands…whilst they are still growing. Excellent list, John :-)

  3. Oh dear, I was late. You already covered many of my niminations but I’m going to stick a few extras down:

    LETTERS TO FIESTA – http://www.myspace.com/letterstofiesta – synths, choppy guitars and swooping octave-skipping vocals, think a darker Wild Beasts only with a strong female lead singer.

    CHI LIMPIROJ – http://www.myspace.com/chimusic07 – one lady and one guitar from Warrington dishing up lovely little two-minute nuggets of wistful, folky acoustic pop

    FORM THE KITES OF SAN QUENTIN – http://www.myspace.com/kitesglitch – cinematic multi-faceted glitchy progressive electronics, as comfortable (and suitable) supporting 65daysofstatic as playing at dubstep nights

    CHAPTER 24 – http://www.myspace.com/chapter24 – Rockabilly meets Afrobeat meets early post-punk, the first time I saw them I was stunned by how much the singer reminded me of Ari Up – unaware at the time that the latter had sadly passed away that very day.

    WILD PALMS – http://www.myspace.com/wearewildpalms – expansive effects-drenched indie brooding, echoes of Bunnymen and Chameleons but in a 21st century context

    STILL CORNERS – http://www.myspace.com/stillcorners – floaty shoegazey dreamwave with echoes of classic era 4AD Records

    SOMETIMES ALWAYS – They nicked their name from a Mary Chain song and specialise in fizzy dirty two minute pop – and they are from Jakarta Indonesia – FREE download EP here: http://eardrumsmusic.com/2010/07/06/sometimes-always-beautiful-noise-pop-from-jakarta/

    PATTERNS – Gorgeous electrogaze with dark undercurrents, FREE download EP here: http://www.pullyourselftogetherzine.co.uk/2010/12/patterns-new-noise-ep.html

    PIG VILLAGE – http://www.myspace.com/pigvillage – Brutal post-hardcore with song titles like “Dead Egyptian Boyfriend” and “This Is What The End Of The World Sounds Like”, and lots of shouting and crunchy riffs

    THE KILL VAN KULLS – http://www.myspace.com/thekillvankulls – Newe Mancunian synthpop: great big tunes, delicious little OMD-ish synth riffs, simple thumping beats and lyrics just the right side of rubbish (in a good way)

    UNCLE ROTTER – http://www.myspace.com/unclerotter – with titles like “Alien Sex Farm” they play what they call \’twisted disco metal\’. It\’s like a cross between 80\’s Glam Metal, Alice Cooper, and Punk.

    There might be more later…

  4. Typo in above post – FROM THE KITES OF SAN QUENTIN (not “Form” as I wrote)

  5. Thee Faction – Socialist R’n’B (PROPER R’n’B) from Reigate. ‘Nuff said.

  6. Lots to check out, just listening to Mothercoat’s ‘Waltzheimer’ now – great mix of bizarre guitar riffs and then dreamy vocals. Lush.

  7. Some great bands on here. We hosted Mothercoat when they came over (lent gear etc..) and we was blown away by there music, played a few gigs with them. Check out Naymedici. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S2ppDTJ35O8

  8. Heya OTHERNESS is the coolest new band I’ve ever heard. Their sound is fresh and original, the songwriting has BIG quality and the songs are diverse and catchy. OTHERNESS OTHERNESS OTHERNESS from La Patagonia Argentina. Pay attention to them. They are giggin’ in London right now.

  9. Hey thanks for putting Drunken Sailor Records in….find us on facebook here
    http://www.facebook.com/DrunkenSailorRecords

  10. My boyfriend proposed to me at a Frazer King gig in Kro Bar (Oxford Road Manchester), i met the love of my life Alex at the gig, they are ridiculously good at what they do, Quite rightly in the top three! we are getting married in June. Hope they can play at our wedding if they can do it (Where can i get in touch with them apart from myspace?.

  11. Thanks for some tips on some great bands, good shout on the Black knights , Love those guys.
    Check out Kindest Of Thieves – http://www.kindestofthieves.com / http://www.kindestofthieves.bandcamp.com
    See what you think.

  12. Onions

    http://www.myspace.com/onionstheband

    Have always liked this under rated group and would say they are my favourite band to date. Have a listen to them and decide for yourself.

  13. Smacksoft are good. Also from Korea, I recommend Apollo 18. The band won “Rookie of the Year” at the 2010 Korean Music Awards. They are playing at SXSW 2011 in March. MySpace: http://www.myspace.com/apollo18official

  14. Love the list check Black Pistol Fire http://wp.me/pOENo-we

  15. If you want to hear some interesting music from Seoul, check out Arne Von Brill. Got full album downloads for a name your price scheme (includes free) on Bandcamp. Have a listen.

  16. Wow, thank you for this list, I checked out every band on it. The only band that stood above the rest in my opinion is #35 – Produced by Steve Albini, Senium, absolutely amazing! I can’t believe a band like this exists today. Thank you Thank you Thank you Thank you Thank you Thank you Thank you Thank you Thank you Thank you for sharing! I am going to do my best to spread the word about this wonderful new band. I see that the list is not in any running order, but if it was, Senium would be my #1 pick. I am just completely amazed! I mean, I’ve been under the impression for years and years that rock music, the way we knew it was dead and pretty much a thing of the past, with no current bands around that are trying to bring it back to the way it used to be… But no way, this band proves that there are still hard working, kick ass rock bands still blasting through powerfully explosive and memorable songs. They don’t sound like Nirvana, they sound more like Nirvana is a big influence to them but they retain their own sound. They sound like the best band to come out since Nirvana in my opinion, and that’s quite a big statement because Nirvana is one of the best to ever exist! I’m searching like a mad man trying to find info and more music on the net from these guys, not much luck on my end. I would love to see them play live, I actually was lucky enough to find some live video of them on youtube. Again, I thank you very much for the heads up on this band, I feel this band is going to go somewhere soon and just can’t remain unknown for much longer sounding the way they do. I have a new favorite band now! Thank you!

    -Josh

    • Thanks Josh,

      They are a great band- spread the word about them!

      Wish there was more of their ilk.

    • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DTImmWlC_WU

      Hello there josh, i have read the comments left to you, it is nice to see people voicing there opinions and still really loving and appreciating unsigned live music,and you seem very grateful for the comments, so here is mine… i do agree with you #35 are good but as a lover of good music i know the band i have left you a link to above (Victorian dad) will knock your socks off, i first witnessed there genius in my local pub in wigan a few years ago, and i have never looked back, i have followed there progression ever since.. and i look forward to them packing out stadiums in the near future!! have a listen!! xxx

  17. NEW bands being the operative word here no? So let’s make it new….Don’t think James Blake, Anna Calvi nor Jamie Woon can be considered ‘new’, given two have their debut albums already out and the latter is on his first UK tour. So, let’s be moving along and find some more actual NEW stuff and refrain from just copying more from PR and Media minds.

  18. Maybe you should have read the blog earlier no? – it’s been on this site for months…
    Maybe you could come back in 12 months and tell everyone that none of the bands are new bands.

  19. Little Spaniard

    Thank you for this great list – it’ll take a while to properly go through it all. I don’t know if you’ve heard of Biting Elbows, but I saw their video and was shocked to discover an awesome band from Russia of all places.

  20. Some great bands on there, Naymedici are definitely worth a listen, top Manchester band, and there’s not much that sounds like them – gypsy folky punkish http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PIgkmfZCkIQ&feature=feedlik – they run a night every Thurs at B Lounge, and we try to get there whenever we can, always a mental do! Massive Janice Graham Band fans too!

  21. Robert Wilson

    I’m particularly enjoying this duo from Manchester I think. Saw them play at the Tiger Lounge recently. Kinda very English yet other worldly at the same time. Great name too: LEONARD ROSSITER

    Thanks

  24. Mikael Nordlander

    You’ve put down the address for the Swedish band Shining. Not the Norweigan. Here’s the correct address: http://www.myspace.com/shiningofficial

  25. Sharks///, Sauna Youth, Flats, Brain Killer, Brain F, B-Lines, Tyvek, Useless Eaters, Diet Cokeheads, Culo, Spastic Panthers, Glam, Crazy Spirit, Dawn Of Humans, Tenement, FyFan, Black Feet, Ydinperhe, Male Nurses, School Jerks, Urban Blight, Unlearn, Hoax, Coke Bust, Vaaska, Deskonocidos, Government Warning, Something Fierce, Smart Cops, Perdition . . .

    Check out the DEAD BARRENS @ deadbarrens.tumblr.com

    Love the list, DB should probably be on there somewhere

  27. some of mine would be Lostrites, Caulbearers, Honeyfeet, Ten Bears, Shere Khan, Dune, Age of Glass to name but a few

  28. Exile Parade….you forgot Exile Parade….best band of them all….

  29. 43. EXIT CALM yes!

  30. Glad to see you’ve got Deadbeat Echoes at No.1, they’re one of the bands I’ve been championing over the last 12-18 months, along with The Lost Boys and Shadow Exchange:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=71eJjzx6Ew0

    http://soundcloud.com/shadow-exchange

  31. Rubbish, what a load of tosh! Half of these John are your friends / mates bands/acts. And havent had any airplay.
    Deadbeat Echoes V Dirty North? Are you serious?

    Like your tips count

    • Actually didn’t know most of the bands on the list. And a list of bands liked at the time. Not sure if having ‘airplay’ means they should be on a list or not…

  32. Channeling dark, contemplative synths among whirring guitars and haunting vocals, The Great Last are a modern alternative.

  33. Another couple of bands I’ve recently discovered who have blown me away and deserve adding to this list are… ‘The Method’ from Cardiff and ‘The Lucid Dream’ from Carlisle. Both can be found quite easily on facebook and are well worth checking out if you’re a fan of garage/psyche type stuff.

  34. Calling All Astronauts debut single “Someone Like You” out now on iTunes http://itunes.apple.com/gb/album/someone-like-you-ep/id480852184

  35. Thanks , I have just been looking for information approximately this topic for a long time and yours is the best I have found out so far. However, what in regards to the conclusion? Are you certain concerning the supply?

  36. greatest band for me is NEW FOUND GLORY

  37. One Problem i encountered…..the “shining” that you listed are not responsible for that black jazz album, it was another band called shining from norway, wereas the one you listed is actually from sweden

  38. Need beats, we tell you where to get beats, we are the beat site that reviews the beat sites, come here first for reviews and comments from real users

  39. zlocenie galwaniczne elementów stykowych w technologii pokryc selektywnych

  40. Quran (4:104) – “And be not weak hearted in pursuit of the enemy; if you suffer pain, then surely they (too) suffer pain as you suffer pain…”

  41. Thanks for the strategies you write about through this site. In addition, many young women which become pregnant do not even try to get medical care insurance because they worry they won’t qualify. Although some states right now require that insurers offer coverage no matter what about the pre-existing conditions. Costs on these kind of guaranteed options are usually bigger, but when considering the high cost of medical care it may be a new safer strategy to use to protect one’s financial future.

  42. I’ve recently started a website, the info you provide on this website has helped me greatly. Thanks for all of your time & work. “Marriage love, honor, and negotiate.” by Joe Moore.

  43. If you’re still on the fence: grab your favorite earphones, head down to a Best Buy and ask to plug them into a Zune then an iPod and see which one sounds better to you, and which interface makes you smile more. Then you’ll know which is right for you.

  44. Thank you for each of your work on this blog. My niece enjoys making time for research and it is obvious why. A lot of people know all of the powerful ways you create very useful things by means of the website and in addition improve participation from people about this area then my daughter is truly discovering a great deal. Take advantage of the remaining portion of the new year. You’re conducting a pretty cool job.

  45. IN CONGRESS, July 4, 1776.The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America,When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.–Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.He has forbidden his Governors to pass Laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his Assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them.He has refused to pass other Laws for the accommodation of large districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the right of Representation in the Legislature, a right inestimable to them and formidable to tyrants only.He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of their public Records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures.He has dissolved Representative Houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people.He has refused for a long time, after such dissolutions, to cause others to be elected; whereby the Legislative powers, incapable of Annihilation, have returned to the People at large for their exercise; the State remaining in the mean time exposed to all the dangers of invasion from without, and convulsions within.He has endeavoured to prevent the population of these States; for that purpose obstructing the Laws for Naturalization of Foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their migrations hither, and raising the conditions of new Appropriations of Lands.He has obstructed the Administration of Justice, by refusing his Assent to Laws for establishing Judiciary powers.He has made Judges dependent on his Will alone, for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries.He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harrass our people, and eat out their substance.He has kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies without the Consent of our legislatures.He has affected to render the Military independent of and superior to the Civil power.He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation:For Quartering large bodies of armed troops among us:For protecting them, by a mock Trial, from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:For cutting off our Trade with all parts of the world:For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:For depriving us in many cases, of the benefits of Trial by Jury:For transporting us beyond Seas to be tried for pretended offencesFor abolishing the free System of English Laws in a neighbouring Province, establishing therein an Arbitrary government, and enlarging its Boundaries so as to render it at once an example and fit instrument for introducing the same absolute rule into these Colonies:For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws, and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments:For suspending our own Legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever.He has abdicated Government here, by declaring us out of his Protection and waging War against us.He has plundered our seas, ravaged our Coasts, burnt our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people.He is at this time transporting large Armies of foreign Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the Head of a civilized nation.He has constrained our fellow Citizens taken Captive on the high Seas to bear Arms against their Country, to become the executioners of their friends and Brethren, or to fall themselves by their Hands.He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavoured to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian Savages, whose known rule of warfare, is an undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions.In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Prince whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.Nor have We been wanting in attentions to our Brittish brethren. We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We have reminded them of the circumstances of our emigration and settlement here. We have appealed to their native justice and magnanimity, and we have conjured them by the ties of our common kindred to disavow these usurpations, which, would inevitably interrupt our connections and correspondence. They too have been deaf to the voice of justice and of consanguinity. We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our Separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, Enemies in War, in Peace Friends.We, therefore, the Representatives of the united States of America, in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by Authority of the good People of these Colonies, solemnly publish and declare, That these United Colonies are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States; that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as Free and Independent States, they have full Power to levy War, conclude Peace, contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which Independent States may of right do. And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.

  46. Fantastic site. Plenty of useful info here. I am sending it to several pals ans additionally sharing in delicious. And obviously, thanks on your sweat!
