Miscellany - Too Many Bands/Too Little Time

Sorry bit of a rubbish post this - but I keep making short notes of bands to mention and then not getting around to it - so here goes for a few short sharp comments and names for future exploration:

We Were Promised Jetpacks

A Scottish foursome are really worth the effort if for nothing other than their excellent name. With touches of Frightened Rabbit and a bit of a disturbing (visually) video.


Pink Mountaintops

A bit of psychedelic, gospel type stuff from British Colombia - happy, trippy, hairy

Hands and Knees

Loving the slightly untidy, jangly nature of this lot from Massachusetts, especially the You Got Pop You Got Style

Cymbals Eat Guitars

Poppy, experimentalisty chaps from Staten Island NY - inevitably sound a little bit Pavement-y (but then doesn't everyone?)

Mt St Helens Vietnam Band
I know I have a thing about bands from the NW USA and so here's some more from Seattle


Just to prove that I am not entirely US obsessed here's some British chaps! The Spirit of the Beehive EP is well worth getting... this Youtube clip isn't really all that typical but kind of fun all the same - the Channel M Session is worth a look
