Best New Bands of 2013 HUMMINGBIRD AWARD #6: Hookworms

We loved Toy last year, we named the #1 new band of 2012. WE loved Tame Impala in 2011, but damn every band out of England right now is hovering around the Psychadellia rock scene. I think we get the credibility of having been there for the past three years, but much like the female led electro-clash scene we mentioned yesterday, Psych rock is the shit right now and it’s hard to pick through them all. What wasn’t hard, was finding our favorite and the band that should rival the top echelon of the space. Toy’s new record in 2013 still makes them the scene leader, but Hookworms is right there. These bands come from a decades worth of bands like early Verve, Adorable and the Blur. Truly it was founded by this year’s comeback band of the year, My Bloody Valentine or the earlier Pink Floyd rock years. All in all Hookworms deserve this Hummingbird and we believe they will be bigger than Temples. Yes we heard their new record already and we still support Hookworms! THE YEAR OF THE PARASITIC ROCK BANDS!
