I just decided to start a new category called "New Bands". They’re not necessarily brand new bands, just new to me. Truthfully, there are, quite literally, more bands than you can shake a stick at. So as I hear things that I like, I’ll give you a heads-up and you can check them out and decide for yourself whether or not you like them.
This first list includes:
- California King: They’re actually out of Brooklyn. Driving psychedelic rock.
- Mad Man Films: The lead singer of this intense and groovy Massachusetts trio reminds me of a black Bruce Campbell from Army of Darkness. "Surgery" is dope.
- A Race of Angels: Oozy electronic LA soul provides the frame for a voice that at times makes me think of a deeper-voiced Maxwell
Know of a band that should be on the list? Send me a link at rafields [at] gmail [dot] com.
