A popular trend on Facebook this past month has been posting 10 bands that you’ve seen in concert – 9 of them must be true and one should be a lie. You then ask your friends to guess which one isn’t correct.
I thought it would be fun to share my love of music with my friends by helping them discover new (or “new to you”) bands/artists that I’ve enjoyed recently. Maybe then we can actually go see them in concert and we can add them to our list.
I’m a sucker for tight harmonies and a folky/rootsy sound.
This group reminds me of everything I loved about The Civil Wars.
Lez be honest…I’m also a sucker for cute girls who sing fun, poppy music. Reminds of me of when Tegan & Sara went pop.
Tank and the Bangas
Wildly fun and completely original New Orleans outfit. A little spoken word, hip-hop, and R&B.
Tight harmonies mixed with electronic pop. Can’t go wrong. Think Sylvan Esso, but more fun.
Super chill and fun.
She’s a bad ass guitarist with a super chill vibe and fantastic voice.
Pretty new to me, but I love their poppy sound.
Not gonna lie…this song originally grabbed me b/c it reminds me of ELO. This is a super-group made of folks from Band of Horses and Franz Ferdinand.
A punk/pop group that is unabashedly queer. I love everything about them.
