>COWER! before the fabulousness of A New Band A Day’s Top Five Bands In May! SHRIEK! at the collected glory of bleeps, buzzes and crunch-noises! CRAP YOURSELF! as you wonder whether any more New Band fabulousness could be CRAMMED into one post!
May was one gosh-darn heck of a month for new bands here on A New Band A Day, and here is our thoughtful, much-pondered-over and not-at-all-cobbled-together list, featuring our Top Five Bands of the Month!
Unfortunately for you ranking-enthusiasts, these are listed in no particular order:
1) HNTR HNTR – Fabulously mental noise freak-mageddon
We said: “sounds like what you’d hear if you were mummified in custard whilst being beaten to death with spanners”
2) Genod Droog – Sunny, mildly crackers Welsh hip-Hop
We said: “reeks of summertime and would sound best if heard sitting a sunny Welsh field, sipping a cider”
3) Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs – Brilliant, carnivorous bleepy tunes
We said: “try listening to Dinosaurs Having a Party without picturing the stumpy-armed scaly guys bopping around a swamp to the clunky Bontempi-keyboard noises”
4) Dinosaur Pile-Up – Third in the superb trio of Dino-gimmick bands
We said: “enough to make you as giddy as a 10 year old girl watching Hannah Montana – The 3D Movie.”
5) Picture Books in Winter – May’s BAND OF THE MONTH!
We said: “I’ve always had a talent for arts and crafts”, they proclaim over the lolloping guitar line, whilst musing about ex-Blue Peter tea-time-trouser-troubler Konnie Huq. It’s unusual to hear a song which is so wonderfully idiosyncratic from such a new band”
So congratulations to Picture Books in Winter, who by all accounts are destined for big things.
And – as if life couldn’t get any more groin-tighteningly exciting, a BRAND NEW radio show will spring itself in your direction any day now!
Last month’s round-up, featuring bands like the ace Like A Stuntman, The Brownies and Band o’ The Month Pixel H8 is right here!
