Best New Bands of 2013 HUMMINGBIRD AWARD #13: MS MR
Chillwave my arse. MS MR is more upbeat than their shadowy aura. Doesn’t matter because they’ve crested, MS MR will be everything you hear on the radio, because you’ve seen them on Leno, Letterman and anywhere else. It wasn’t like we didn’t tell you last year. It’s my favorite part of music today. It’s finding that perfect 80’s bluewave song you loved by Kate Bush and then hear it again with the perfection of todays studio and danceable tracks. Lizzy and Max personify 2013’s best new sound and I hope you play Fantasy on repeat over and over and over again.

Best New Bands of 2011 HUMMINGBIRD AWARD: #13 Lana Del Rey

5 Dec

Don't punish us for joining the mainstream, but Lana Del Rey is soooo good. It's hard not to be a lover!

Best New Band of 2011
#13 Hummingbird Award – Lana Del Rey

The Spectorian sounds of 2011 all started back in January or maybe it was the hangover from 2010. Lana Del Rey is talented, but her attention is at it’s peak all without a record. She is due for her LA meltdown at this point..although, her album is due in January and it will sell lots o’lots of records. You be the judge, but we loved her in January and we still love her today.

Hometown: Brooklyn, NY/ Hollywood
Members: Lana Del Rey
Sonic Soulmates™: Stevie Nicks, Dolly Parton (in tone), The Shirelles, Fiona Apple, Tennis, The Ronettes

Best New Bands of 2010 Hummingbird Award: #13 Tennis

They’re the husband and wife, Patrick Riley and Alaina Moore, duo from Denver, CO. They bought a boat, sailed the Atlantic Coast and wrote beautiful songs. They define our XX/XY duos. It’s Hemingway meets Buffet, meets Vampire Weekend, meets 50′s bubblegum pop. I love the blend of the organ and her eerily timeless vocals. They are so fantastic and the more songs we hear, the more we know they will be bigger than big.

Hometown: Denver, CO
Members: Patrick Riley and Alaina Moore
Sonic Soulmates: The xx, Vampire Weekend, Dusty Springfield
