8 May

Jai Paul is our 2010 sensation that’s carried over….

UNCORKED™ – Best New Bands of 2012 (5.3.12) Jai Paul

Hello again, it’s New Bands you were looking for? Sorry for the Lionel Richie, but I always feel like levity cuts through the tension. So fine that wasn’t funny put punny. Same thing right? Jai Paul was all the rage in 2011 and 2010, his smooth groove lo-fi R&B spawns thoughts of James Blake, Bon Iver, etc. It’s the combination of clever beats, horns and his high Bonsetto that gets us all excited here. Take a listen and try to not to get upset when you can’t find shit from the guy…we called the label/s but our patience is running thin. If you’re going to give me a hard time because he’s on XL, don’t we know.

Vitals:
Hometown:Rayners Lane, United Kingdom.
Members: Jai Paul (Producer, vocals, etc.)
Sonic Soulmates™: Bon Iver, James Black
Trackables™:
“Jasmine” – I get a feeling of pure joy, leaving the office and running on the beach. Let’s try out this PLAY button thingy.

“BTSU” – Absolutely so good in 2010 and if you heard it today, you’d say “Wow that is soooo good” JPaul is ahead of his time.

Uncorked™ Howler

Holy fack, these boys sound like so many bands it’s hard to pin them to one Sonic Soulmate™. Really, I’m struggling…what? You’re begging me for one? Just one…fine The Strokes impregnated in some dark alley under a pile of trash by the Cramps. Hell, Jordan Gatesmith, the primary Howler is only 19 years old and he and his Minny pals created a record that is so damn good! The record came out yesterday. By the way these boys will be the band in every commercial, every video game, hell they may even be better than the aforementioned bands. They’re hooks are so catchy, not even a catfish could escape. I’m hooked and the entire 2012 America Give Up record is worth the vinyl purchase. Thank you Turk. I think you will agree. Enough of my yapping, just listen.

Vitals:
Hometown: Minneapolis, MN
Members: Jordan Gatesmith on lead guitar and vocals, Brent Mayes on drums, Ian Nygaard on guitar, Max Petrek on keyboard, and France Camp (real name Jay Simonson) on bass
Sonic Soulmates™: The Vaccines, Surfer Blood, The Strokes
Trackables™:
“Back of Your Neck”

“Beach Sluts”
