UNCORKED™ – Best New Bands of 2012 (10.22.12) GRMLN
Lo-fi, still living in his parent’s basement and he’s only a Sophomore at UC Santa Cruz. Isn’t that the school where you have clothing optional Wednesday’s? None-the-less it’s a great segue to the stripped down sounds of GRMLN. It’s lo-fi, single guitar, vocals, electronic backing. Think Dirty Beaches, but Yoodoo has melody. It’s clean, crisp and a little Jack Whitey.

Founded: 2012, started making music in 2010
Hometown: orange county to santa cruz
Members: YooDoo Park
Sonic Soulmates™: Lo-fi clean guitar Jack White, Dirty Beaches
We first heard him with Ben E. Kings “Stand By Me” — Clever

Amazing rockadelica from London will knock your socks off.

UNCORKED™ – Best New Bands of 2012 (10.14.12) Toy

Phew…we thought this year of rock was going to boil down to Tame Impala and that Nirveatles crap. What a sham…then, oh then we hear Toy and our hearts skipped a beat. Psychadelia from London, makes us think of our Primal Scream days, but I have to say they are better. They have melody and they rock the sh*t of the place. You can get lost in their music like that of early Verve, see “Already There” and then call us and tell how amazing that song is. We beg you to listen to “Dead and Gone” and tell us that you aren’t in love. Oh and they’re on Heavenly Records, a trusted label of quality. We dare you….Thank you.

Octoberfresh II – Three New Records YOU MUST HEAR!

10 Oct

Our hue is getting closer to home. Three more FANTASTIC records for October

We’re back with three more outstanding records for your October spice. A good garden variety. One part, singer songwriter for you lonely souls, one part 70’s rock anthem for those of you seeking a kink in your neck and a final drop of OUR FAVORITE RECORD OF THE YEAR! No joke…

Take this:

New Records:
AC Newman – Shut Down The Streets He was our first artist ever featured here at NBD. He is dusty in our archives that he doesn’t even exist on our WP site. Here is the new record, it’s heartfelt? Don’t cry:

Tame Impala – Lonerism Don’t even think about questioning this bands place in our hearts. They are our final drop of hope for a rock revolution. Please listen and bang your head!

Bad Books – II: Do you want to know why the record is so good. I got sad at first, then I got excited, then I got sad again. Like a great bout of bi-polarism, this record takes you on the right kind of music emotional roller coaster. Listen to it in order and don’t be a song slut, listen to it in it’s entirety.
