There's nothing I enjoy more than finding a new band to play for you. Even though I may just stick with one or two of their songs on the show, my hope is that you'll seek 'em out on your own if it's something you dug hearing. This week, I spun these artists for the first time:
HOLOGRAMS - Swedish punk band has the Spirit of '77
PLAYLOUNGE - LDN noise-pop duo
NOW, NOW - if you were a fan of female-fronted, heartland bands like Magnapop and Frogpond, you'll love this trio from Minneapolis.
WET MOUTH - 2 girls + 2 guys based in Liverpool with members from England, Norway, Canada and Los Angeles. Elements of grunge, post-punk and pop are all present.
COVES - dreamy guy/girl duo with a noisepop undercurrent
WAILIN' STORMS - Gothic Americana by trio from NYC via Corpus Christi.
GET PEOPLE - LDN electro-pop trio
CAAN - stylish, nocturnal synth pop (think Jamie Woon) from ex-Ou Est Le Swimming Pool member Caan Capan
ALUNAGEORGE - Pichfork-approved dubstep influenced electro-soul duo
