    Default What are bands that should be raved about MORE?

    * The Clientele: I think I was the only person to list "God Save The Clientele" as one of my favorite albums last year in that cumulative listing thing I did. Granted, they did open for Peter Bjorn and John so they did get some exposure, still, even among the indie community, nobody knows who the fuck these guys are.

    * I Am Robot and Proud: This guy makes music that seemingly gels with whatever environment you find yourself in. Really cute electronic music, for fans of Tortoise and Mum.

    * DNTEL: I know that he's the other half of the Postal Service, but it still seems to me that very few people know of DNTEL and just how Jimmy can take the best of artists like Ben Gibbard, Jenny Lewis and Conor Oberst and make them absolutely shine.

    * Junior Boys: Okay, so I've been harping on these guys since I chance saw them at Coachella last year. Definitely the best find I made last year, and This Is Goodbye has been my personal fave record for the last few months. Sure, Pitchfork gave them a good rating on their last disc, but again, few people talk about them in a "yeah! Junior Boys!"-ish light.

    Who do you think needs more coverage? Who needs to be raved about more?
    Upcoming Shows:
    * Dillon Francis + Anamanaguchi -- December 28th

    Going to Weekend 1 of Coachella 2014

    Junior Boys "Last Exit" is a beautiful record. I don't think they're great live but listen to Last Exit at night and you will be like O_O

    Tycho - awesome ambient music, kinda like a mix between BoC and Ulrich Schnauss

    Plaid - EDM duo on Warp Records from the UK, great stuff.

    Overseer - EDM producer from the UK, most famous for his track "Supermoves" (if you've seen Snatch, it's the song that played during the diamond heist in the beginning)

    Mahogany - shoegaze/dream pop band from NYC, fairly unknown, but I love their stuff

    Shout Out Out Out Out - Dance/Punk group from Canada, fairly new and young, but put on a great show when I saw them at V-fest last august.

    i'll find some youtube bits for these artists.

    See, now I feel even worse about having no clue about Plaid seeing as I love most Warp artists (Aphex Twin, Squarepusher, Autechre, etc.)

    Plaid was the most disappointing live performance I've seen since Datarock.

    The visuals were really weak. Kinda looked like windows media player. They were late. The virtually looked like little zombies behind their laptops the whole time, no emotion, totally bland. The beats and bass lines were very similar through out the whole set and the sounds they were using sounded the same way, nothing that made me take notice or wondering how they did it. Nothing really notably dramatic either. Just disappointing.

    Maybe the sound was bad at the venue, but I kid you not, it sounded like crap. Like they had absolutely not talent what so ever. Except Computer Camp love, they did manage to pull it off pretty well.

    Mmm, to each his own I guess. I have a really good friend who is a HUGE friend of Plaid (he runs their myspace), and saw them for the first time last week. He loved the show, got to meet the guys and everything, said they were really cool. I would love to see them, just to see what the live show is like.

    I agree, but Faithless is pure dance... Cheesy dance music, if you will, but great dance music.

    Morcheeba... Yeah... Totally underrated. They're definitely no.3 for me amid the Trip-Hop "giants" (after you say Massive Attack and Portishead, it becomes debatable) not Thievery Corp or Zero 7.

    I have a question... did Morcheeba get a new singer? I heard they did, and that she isn't as good.

    Tycho: Holy shit... point me in the direction of more material.

    Plaid: That is pretty damn chill... Is it pronounced "Plad"? or "Played"?

    Overseer: That's also pretty tight.

    I'll get to Shout Out Out Out later.

    Olivia Tremor Control. They were the best psychedelic group of the 90s, and because of Neutral Milk Hotel's admitted brilliance, they were always overshadowed in the Elephant 6 collective, but they were absolutely amazing. They never really sold that many albums, but those in the know understood that they were more than something special, they were fantastic.
