Best New Bands of 2013 HUMMINGBIRD AWARD #9: Diane Coffee
I fell for Foxygen the first time I heard them on the MP3 that the label sent me. I did. I thought it might be a sound that would go beyond the gimmick, but then it just got bombastic. Similar to their near murderous dressing room drama. You had to guess that there was pure talent in the band from the DNA of their sound but who would have guessed it was their drummer. Shaun Fleming took a childhood sickness, a boredom and instead of turning to his XBOX, he recorded Phil Spector quality doo wop that might just be the dark horse record of 2013. I love Shaun and will forever be a fan of Foxygen’s drumming and every solo project from him. Diane Coffee might be my Girls obsession of 2013.
