Yayyyyy, I love promoting my friends' bands!
They all have MySpaces or something similar so there are tracks to listen to for all of them.
Of course, MySpace being what it is, I can't promise there won't be adult language somewhere on it - so consider yourself warned!
I've known my friend Thom for seven years or so, and he's a very talented artist. He's studying jazz guitar at my university. I looooove him. Here are just some of the bands he's in. He tends to do kind of experimental jazz, so be prepared!Juicebox
's MySpace. Two tracks on there that are synth-y remixes of their live shows. Really great female vocalist, awesome catchy tracks, really danceable!The Cherries
's MySpace. A bunch of tracks, more jazzy than Juicebox.
Then there are some bands he was in that are a little less active these days.Flattstreet
's homepage. Two albums available for download! I looooove This Dog Is Big
. They were huge for a while but then everyone sort of split up, they haven't played a show in a long time. (Some adult language in lyrics)Birdseyeing It
's MySpace. Three tracks to listen to there, and they are all just SO beautiful. But I don't think they're active much anymore, since Sarah moved to New York City to be a model. I suspect "The Ruins of Ancient Crete" is about me.
Sarah has her own band, I don't know how active it is because I'm not really in touch with her. It's called Jungletalk
. It's electronica.
Another one of my favourite bands that is on MySpace (although I don't know any of them personally) is Deerhoof
. They range a lot but it's all experimental, kind of poppy noise rock or math rock or art rock or something like that.
All my other favourites, I don't know where you can find tracks to listen to... if I find any, I will be sure to post them!
