2013 is set to be all about bands from LA with capitalised names, but there's also some room for some nostalgia too. Another theme of the year will undoubtedly be money too (woohoo for the chance of a 'triple-dip recession'!!!), so here's three picks combining our expectations for the next twelve months.
Does the world really need another LA indie rock band? If their name is NO, the answer is YES. Their vinyl single 'What's Your Name?' has been picked as KEXP 90.3 FM's 'Song Of The Day' and made available as a free download via their blog.
If you want to hear more of NO, you can also download their EP for free below.
Two LA rock bands in one feature? Why not? Similarly, PAPA's 'Put Me To Work' has been picked as 'Song Of The Day' by radio station KROQ and is also available for free download worldwide from the band's Soundcloud. You can download 'Put Me To Work' by following the links below. Official links:Website, Facebook, Twitter, LISTEN ABOVE / DOWNLOAD HERE
2013 isn't all about new music as there's still time to enjoy some 'old' music too. More than a decade after their last album A New Morning, Suede are set to release their comeback single in February and have teased another new song to keep fans occupied in the mean time.
You can download 'Barriers' for free from their official website.
At the peak of Blink-182’s fame, Tom DeLonge had a lot of ideas kicking through his head. At a tour stop in Paris, sitting his hotel room, the singer came up with the concept of a character named Poet Anderson. Now, nearly 15 years later, he’s ready to incorporate that idea into a much larger and ambitious project with Angels & Airwaves than he’s ever attempted before.
