I realized today that I can name less than 5 new (less than 10 years old) rock/pop/alternative/indie/folk/hip hop groups/bands.
Here are a few musicians I discovered tonight by reading various blog posts, by random clicking, and by word of mouth. They all link to their band sites so you can hear a bit of their tracks if you like:
Kim Boekbinder – The Impossible Girl: I know absolutely nothing about this woman, as her bio seems to be nowhere on her website. However, I found her through another wordpress blog post. In particular I like the tune “Big Easy” – but then again, I would. You can listen to her tunes for free and purchase them each on her site for $1.
Good Charlotte – Again, I found this group through another blog post. I’ve heard of them before, which is apparently a good thing because I hear they’re quite popular. “Counting the Days” rocks. The group reminds me of being a freshman in college. It’d be great for a road trip track.
Khaled – Alternative World Fusion. I like. You can preview the tracks. Rock meets alternative meets middle eastern.
Time to work on expanding my repertoire. If there’s anything I should be listening to, let me know.
P.S. Don’t give me boy bands. Or female versions thereof.
