Promoting New Music Nr. 01

As of late, I have been recieving promotional materials from up and coming (largely DIY) bands. While I have not liked all of the music they are doing, I love the concept DIY indie bands, and would like to start making a habit of promoting them - regardless of how good (or horrible) they are.

Out of all, there was one with real potential.


They are a 5 piece from Ireland, and claim The Stone Roses, The Smiths and Radiohead as their primary influence. It is worth a listen, and their debut single, Old Age, will be coming out sometime in the new early New Year. It will be featured on their first EP, Felix Squirrel.

You can sample their tunes on Myspace or Soundcloud.

The Shape of the Earth

One other submission which may deserve mention was a band out of Redlands, CA - The Shape of the Earth. They have promise. I would like to hear the vox polished up a bit in the studio, but its worth a listen (via myspace).

Thats all for now.
