If you're ever looking for a fast way to find some brand new music by up and coming artists, SPIN does a great monthly list which gives you a quick snapshot of five new bands releasing new music. The list offers a brief description of the band/artist and lets you know what they sound like. It also lists similar artists/sounds/styles to give you a great idea as to how the music will sound. Of course the best way to find out is to listen for yourself. Each artist has a link to one of their songs right on the list. This months choices include an electronic music DJ named Alison Wonderland (great name), an ex-Massachusetts DIY punk rocker who does a fabulous stripped down cover of Blink 182's "M+M's", and a one man folk band with more instruments than fingers. Rounding out the list is a fuzzed out punk duo from LA with a new tape (that's right tape) out this month entitled "Almost Famous" and an experimental psych rock solo project by ex-Monotonix guitarist Yonatan Gat. Give all the artists a listen and read more about them in the link below.
