The Good, The Bad & The Ugly

As promised every two weeks a list of some groups that I think should get a little recognition... but i am changing the name of the post because I felt obtuse and presumptuous. So it will now be known as: The Good, The Bad & The Ugly.
The list really gets exiting near the end!

Wild Sweet Orange
Genre: Rock
Birmingham, Alabama
Why? Take Americana and a little Coldplay and then give it the voice of Jon Foreman (Switchfoot) and your sure to have success.

Right Away, Great Captain!
Genre: Folk/Broken
Atlanta, Georgia
Why? This is Andy Hull's (Manchester Orchestra) side project. The second album comes out in the next few month a long with Manchester Orchestra's latest effort, both should be divine slash, I'm a little more exited about Right Away, Great Captain!

The White Rabbits
Genre: Indie/Rock
New York, New York
Why? Bands with two drummers will always make this list... but seriously, check these guys out!

Band Marino
Genre: Indie/Freak Folk
Orlando, Florida
Why? Where album that came out in March is fantastic and is starting to get a considerable amount of buzz. This is some happy up beat music, played mostly in major keys!

The Mint Chicks
Genre: Powerpop
Why? I love Portland and this is one of my favorite groups from up there. They have a little Octopus Project thing going with lyrics though. Their latest effort; Crazy? Yes! Dumb? No! comes out next Tuesday.

Mount Eerie
Genre: Indie/experimental
Anacortes, Washington
Why? I'm working on a post called "the innovators" that will focus on artist that are at the front lines of music, particularly the indie scene. Mount Eerie should be on that post, but her is here. It's another side project from, Phil Elevrum (The Microphones).

The Mood
Genre: Powerpop / Psychedelic / Rock
New York, New York
Why? They released a little EP in July that is getting a lot of well deserved buzz.

Genre: Noise/Rock
Why? They have wildly fantastic live shows and have been touring like crazy!
