Bands of the Week Ep. 2

Like everyone else I discovered Ryn Weaver this week and her song OctaHate. I thought I was clever and was going to post about her but then realized that's what so many others did this week. I'm not shooting those blogs down because there's a reason everyone should talk about Ryn, but I wanted to showcase some other artists that are also exploding. This week I discovered great blogs like the ones below. All of them feature great reviews and songs that are very catchy. Some blogs I had known about but got to really dive into while others I found for the first time. Disco Naïveté - http://disconaivete.com/ Popjustice - http://www.popjustice.com/ The Line of Best Fit - http://www.thelineofbestfit.com/ I also want to add that I discovered a great writer for the Village Voice named Gili Malansky (@malinskid - http://www.gilimalinsky.com). She introduced me to up and coming Brooklyn act MisterWives who have a new release out called "Reflections." My favorite song is "Twisted Tongue." See below for my new favorites and visit their websites for upcoming promotions and tour dates!

Over the past few days I have stumbled upon some really great music and really great blogs. I discovered these artists and blogs through one of my favorite websites Hype Machine where you can find almost every music blog out there.

Below are three cool blogs I think that you should check out along with three cool bands that I discovered from these blogs. I for one am now a fan of these artists and I suggest you check them out.
