Sorry for the delay in posts but I've had a busy couple of days and unfortunately didn't have time to sit down and wrtie a new blog. So that means that today I will be posting 2 new bands to make up for it.
The first band is Exit Calm from South Yorkshire in the UK. A great band that sounds like so many bands rolled into one The Verve, Doves etc. They have a shoegaze sound that if you are a fan of that genre will remind you of a lot of early brit bands. The first song that they released was "We're On Our Own" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a1nC-uyhg1c which is a solid tune. They released a self titled debut album in May and also another great song "Hearts And Minds" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a1nC-uyhg1c . Definitely a band to keep your eyes on.
Next band up is Crocodiles from the San Diego, California. They also have a sound reminiscent of british rock like Jesus & Mary Chain, Spaceman 3 and Spiritualized. Formed from noisepunk acts Some Girls and The Plot to Blow Up the Eiffel Tower, the Crocodiles are a sound not often heard now-a-days. A great song from the album of the same name is "Summer Of Hate" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a1nC-uyhg1c . They only have the one album to date but have read that they are working on a follow up. Check out "I Wanna Kill" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a1nC-uyhg1c which is another fuzzed out gem.
