When we say brand-new, it’s a relative term, as some of these musical folks have been around for quite a while. Let’s just say that, for most of us, they seemed to come out of nowhere and struck our musical mojo with the iron hammer of AWESOME.
The Sword is from Austin, Texas, but may as well have come from the 7th circle of hell, because they really sound a lot like Black Sabbath. The band members admit to being heavily influenced by the band, but the group is considered more stoner rock than heavy metal, and there is some heavy criticism over their obsession with dungeons and dragons. But all in all, the music is something you can bang your head to, and especially their latest album, Apocryphon, which came out in 2012.
On the other side of the noise meter, we have your basic American folk music band The Rosewood Thieves. Yet, to call their music basic is misleading, because it’s anything but. The music is unusual and it’s difficult to categorize as uniquely blues, country, alternative, punk rock, grunge, or folk. The genre bending is interesting, and easy on the ears, even if you’re not really into the alt-rock scene. Is mellifluous a good word? I say yes.
Eclectic is the secret word of the day. LA meets Nashville in the country duo, Honeyhoney, which is making waves on the music scene. Suzanne Santo and Ben Jaffe make the most of fiddle-riddled Americana melody to pull at heartstrings and confound expectations. It is a mix of the smooth and jarring as pretty girl teams up with mysterious stranger, and their latest album Billy Jack reflects this dichotomy well. A sequel that promises to be equally impressive is coming soon...
And to clinch this foray into the schizophrenic music scene is Alt-J, a self-styled indie rock band that came out of Leeds and managed to catch the big one with the 2012 release of their album An Awesome Wave. The music mix of folk, indie rock, heavy synthesizers, pop, hip-hop, and rock bass is paired with lyrics heavily peppered with old movie references. The album won the Barclaycard Mercury Prize in 2012, so at least in the UK and Ireland, they’re the real deal.
