.... but may cause impotance

It was suggested to me that I review some 'New Music', the only problem with that is [as you may have guessed] have a very specific taste in music. This taste is not a for a particular age of music or even a particular genre, my problem is that I am in rare in only liking good unique music as opposed to the 'songs' forced on me by mainstream media, yes I'm talking to you Gaga!

I thought the obvious solution to this would be to just review some bands that I like, but to save me just listing various anime theme-songs and all the SoaD tracks off my ipod I thought I'd stir things up a bit. So here a my: 

Top 5 Bands Which Deserve To Be Massive But Aren't:

1. Metronomy - This band have been around for over twelve years and have worked with the like of Gorillaz, Klaxons, Franz Ferdinand and Goldfrapp. Even with over 3 unique albums and over 20 remixes the word Metronomy only seems to cause confusion when uttered.

2. Be Your Own Pet - BYOP is a girl fronted punk band out of Nashville, Tennessee although they were first signed under a British record label. Unfortunately this band split up after their final tour of England in 2008, but lead singer Jemima Pearl released her solo album 'Break it up' the following year.

 3. Hadouken - This band make 'New Rave' music under their own record label 'Surface Noise Records' and have released 2 albums since forming in 2006 with a third on it's way shortly. This band deserves an extra bit of respect as New Rave is hard to pull of without it sounding like noise.


4. Magnetic Man - I was unsure about putting Magnetic Man in as they alrady have a very strong fan base, so even though their success has been minimal they have already completed a sell out UK tour. Although small right now I'm sure Magnetic Man will be massive.

 

5. Crystal Castles - This band is a Canadian electronic band and was one among many bands that took off during the MySpace phenomenom in the early 21st century. Since then Crystal Castles have become known for their 'chaotic' live shows and have thus earned some well deserved acclaim in the British indie culture.


Breifly I should mention that Gallows were going to make this list until researching them I found that they have in fact become massive across the Atlantic. I'm still embedding the video though because I love the lyrics to this song [Parental Advisory: May Not Be Suitable For Minors] 


.... you can go back to Gaga now.

  4. Fuck Gaga. You posted some good music though. I liked Metronomy and BYOP the best. I've listened to Gallows before; they are quite big now. I don't like the screaming, but they have some good riffs.
