They don't have to be genuinely new as in just releasing their first songs or albums - just artists or groups that you have only just discovered in the last year or so.

Here's one of my faves - Melanie Fiona:

oh, man... I'll try to only post a few at a time. These four were "holy sh*t this is awesome" moments for me.

Minerva Lions - listen to their EP for free here


The Temper Trap (think pink floyd meets the beegess meets arcade fire)

Warpaint (i think I'm in love with every single one of them)

and the best band you don't know you've already heard: The Asteroids Galaxy Tour
That whole album is incredible.

Cool. I bought that one track above from the Heineken ad, but I hadn't heard the other three. Like Warpaint best of those three clips, will listen to more from each.

Here's another band who I've ended up buying a lot of over recent months:

The black lockets

They are local but they're very good. We have a venue, the lost horizon in Syracuse that hosts a lot of big names. The lockets have opened for Story of the year, cross fade, pop evil and a bunch more.

Right on. I keep meaning to check out SXSW, but it never works out.

I also want to try to head out there for the formula 1 race next fall. hard to say if that'll work out, though.

Yeah getting Formula 1 here is really exciting - and big boost for the local economy. SXSW = I've only gone along to a few of the events during the Interactive section of it, have never done too much of the music portion. Mainly because I'm lucky and there's great live music here all through the year.
