One more installment of picks from the 1,500+ submission that came in from Reverbnation when I offered some coverage on this site. If you missed parts one and two, go here and here.
1. The Bryant C. Project (Rock from Winchester, Kentucky)
Looking for bands along the line of Rage Against the Machine? You get that from the opening bass notes of this track. Jack White should hear about this guy, too. More music here.
2. The Pink Diamond Review (Alternative from Leeds, UK)
Very cinematic stuff in a slinky electro-psyche way. This track brings me back to some of the sinister stuff I used to play on the overnight show at CFNY back in the 80s. The band is fronted by a genuine mannequin. Very Kraftwerk-y. More here.
3. The Violent Mind Filed (Garage rock from Ontario, California)
This song sounds like it was recorded in a garage using a single overhead microphone sometime around 1965. Love its lo-fi-ness. There are three EPs and five albums to check out here.
4. Lumane (Dark pop from Indianapolis)
If you’re into Lorde, K.Flay, and the like, you’ll find something interesting here. Born in Switzerland, she ditched her accent when she attended film and musical theatre school in NYC. She’s also an alumnus of the Berklee College of Music in Boston. Learn more of her story here.
5. wht.rbbt.obj (Alternative from Chicago)
There’s a lot to unpack here: rock, garage rock, blues, alternative, and more. This is a husband-and-wife team (Francis and River; the band’s name is pronounced White Rabbit Object) who work with “sexy vocals, overdriven guitars, and expensive lingerie.” Lingerie? You’ve got my attention. More here.
Thanks to all who submitted material. Let’s do this again, shall we?
