Calling All Fans

One of the cool things about having an iPod, THE cool thing, actually, is that you have all of your music with you everywhere you go. And so you get to listen to anything in your collection anytime you want.

The downside of that is that you get burned out on your collection because you listen to it everywhere you go.

I need more music. I’m craving the new hot band. And that’s where you come in. Brag on your new favorite band. Sell me on their best CD. All suggestions are welcome. But, we’ll be attending the ACL Festival this fall, so you get extra points for suggesting a band that’s on this list.

So lay it on me. Hit me with your new coolest band.

  1. I am sure you have probably heard plenty of Van Morrison, but he does totally rock. Moondance is my favorite album but pretty much everything he does is good.

  2. Explosions in the Sky is a band that’s in the ACL Fest this year that I highly recommend. I put a few live tracks of theirs on a CD mix, “Post-Rock Sampler”, I burned you a couple of years ago. Check out their album The Earth Is Not a Cold, Dead Place and you won’t be disappointed. At least, not if you have a soul. 🙂

  3. Check out some Wolfmother. They sound like a modern day Black Sabbath. They are really good! Also, the new Snow Patrol CD is very good. Hmmm, what else. I really like The Fray. I caught onto them before they caught onto mainstream. Kinda bummed about that, but they are definately worth a listen. That’s my two cents!

  4. Calexico. First heard them at ACL 04. They will be back at this year’s ACL. Two favorite albums: The Black Light, Feast of Wire. They’re all good, though. After I saw them at ’04 and have seen them twice since. Highly recommended.

  5. Right On! Thanks for coming through, peeps. This list looks pretty varied, which is exactly what I was hoping for. I’m excited about having some new tunes to check out. I’ll be back with reviews ASAP.
