Glastonbury Time

June 21, 2011 at 7:39 pm (friends, life!, music, movies)

some newly sampled bands that i’m rather looking forward to catching at Glastonbury tomorrow! (apart from all the usual mainstreams bands like Coldplay, U2 etc). the full line-up containing links from which i was sampling the bands can be found here:

anyway for those who want a couple of new bands to listen to, the ones listed below mostly belong to the kind of eclectic Brit indie pop that i dig!

Two Door Cinema Club


Metronomy (highly recommended. their sound is a mixup of MGMT and Black Eye Peas)
The Naked & Famous (same category! check out Young Blood)

The Gaslight Anthem (recalls Kings of Leon)

Pendulum (Pendulum sound a rocking band too; taking over from Linkin’ Park perhaps? i can imagine how awesome they’d sound live. pity we will be missing them as we are leaving Sunday night)

Primal Scream (reminds me of Stars for some reason. must be the haunting vocals)

Mumford & Sons (swinging sixties?)

Bright Eyes /  The Wombats/ Noah and the Whale (super Brit pop…you know; the kind they play non-stop in River Island and Topman)

Alice Gold (sounds like the lead singer of Metric!)

Anna Calvi (real attitude)

Foster the People (feel good vibes all round. a bit of Mika/Scissors Sisters maybe?)

Warpaint (rocking all female band)

Twilight Singers (personal favourite)

The Pierces (more feel good!)
