Oh hey how are you? Yes we’ve been tweeting and not blogging, sorry. We got sucked into the world of twitter passing along new music, so if you’re in the mood follow us @newbandday

Hey how are things? I hope well. I am writing because I have been hiding under a bridge, locked away from humanity for the past 90-days. One morning I woke up with a cassette tape on my chest, it read “Listen to this…NOW” I was excited, but also perplexed, how the fuck do I listen to a cassette tape. These damn hipsters think vintage is cool. Well suck it broskis, I can’t hear your finely tightened jean mood electro-clash tunes without a 1984 Walkman. But alas, being a street savior, I have my ways. I pawned a box of glass milk bottles and acquired a finely restored Sanyo cassette player. I popped in the tape, pressed down and held fast forward and I heard something amazing music…good music too. Tan Vampires hail from Dover, New Hampshire, two records under their belts and they have a solid new one called Ephemra. Strong beards too…Grab it here or listen to my favorite tracks here. Love these boys and no they didn’t give me a cassette tape, but some other shitastic bands did send me some and I kindly recycled them.

UNCORKED™ – Best New Bands of 2013 (5.24.13) Marriages

I love Marriages that's why I did it again.

So you all know the Arizona Turk, right? I am convinced he’s got a basement full of candles and photos of someone, maybe even a stuffed dragon. I listen to his uncorked choices and I fear for my life. I go through this odd paranoia late at night when I hear the deep bass lines, the lack of vocals and swear someone is breathing on my neck. What is it with bands like Boris, Isis, Godspeed You Black Emperor that keeps people coming back for more? Candle lit basements or is just the age of rock. I take the latter. Marriages hail from LA, have been together for a few years now and they are the next generation of rock…don’t forget to lock your dogs, keep your dogs close and don’t look behind you.

Vitals:
Founded: 2011
Hometown: LaLa
Members: Vocals & guitar: Emma Ruth Rundle
Keyboards: Greg Burns
Percussion : Andrew Clinco
Sonic Soulmates™: feeling a lot of Isis, Godspeed You Black Emperor and of course Boris
Trackables™: “Part The Dark Again” – This is the last track of the EP and it’s so good. It’s the warm bed after a night of haunting.

UNCORKED™ – Best New Bands of 2013 (1.22.13) Palma Violets

UNCORKED™ – Best New Bands of 2013 (1.22.13) Palma Violets
You readers may have missed the stellar list our contributing music stalker posted back in December. Well it included Palma Violets one of the bands that turned our heads yet again. Just perfect bone crushing punk harmonies. It’s not surprising that these closet garage rockers hail from Lambeth outside of London. Hell we might be too late. NME already crowned them with their song of the year with “Best of Friends” hear below…but we might just catch the jetstream and claim that as something brilliant to keep an eye on! Their debut album 180 hits the street on February 26, 2013!

Vitals:
Founded: 2011
Hometown: Lambeth, London, UK
Members: Sam Fryer (vocals) and Chilli Jesson (guitar), Pete Mayhew (keyboards)
Will Doyle (drums)
Sonic Soulmates™: U2 Boy era, The Libertines?? maybe…Arctic Monkeysesque
Trackables™: “Best of Friends” – It’s catchy and the lead comes off like a combo of Sid and Bono —- Boy era Bono.

Ahh man, back to the grind. Real life is busy and crazy this week, but NewBandDay life is calm and ready to take over the world. We received our Christmas gifts and man were we stoked. Ex Cops, with their kick ass 2012 EP is prepping with a new LP on 1/22/13 True Hallucinations. Grab it on vinyl here…The sound reminds us of Best Coast but with a dude on lead and with the new single holy cow they sound like Teenage Fanclub or even a little like Girls. With the addition of the players Kai, Leif and Sam, this record is sure to crush in early 2013.

Vitals:
Founded: 2011
Hometown: Brooklyn, NY
Members: Brian Harding, Amalie Bruun, Kai Kennedy on lead guitar, Leif Young Huckman on bass, and Sam Bair
Sonic Soulmates™:
Trackables™: “James” – New single very Teenage Fanclub!
