By Larry Lootsteen

Artist: Puppet Rebellion, “The Greatest Lie Ever Told”

Album: Single


New, new, new band recently formed.  This is their first, and highly enjoyable, demo track.

Sounds like:  A driving force, calling out…



Artist: The Anthropologists of Nosy Mangabe , “Mr. Wright”

Album: Single

This definitely qualifies as the best band name I’ve heard in ages!

Sounds like:  A 78 rpm from the 1940’s



Artist: The Strangers, “I Feel Strange”

Album: Single

This was a nice surprise find!  I don’t run across a lot of indie hip-hop and this UK band really hits it.

Sounds like:  Linkin Park meets Silversun Pickups



Artist: Goodnight, Sunrise, “The Machine”

Album: Create Destroy Create

This Toronto based group is full-on, eclectic energy

Sounds like:  Someone coming after you, catching up fast



Artist: Vows, “108”

Album: Single

I always like a band that brings a twist.  This six-piece is mixing some interesting alt-rock noise!

Sounds like:  A want, a need and some anger…



Artist: Skeleton Suite, “Wounded”

Album: SS

Hard-edged sounds emanating from the depths

Sounds like:  The kind of hurt that leaves you lost and confused
