New/Current Artist Suggestions.
« on: April 03, 2013, 12:51:06 PM »
I've seen a fair few comments regarding the band The Strypes recently. Which is a brilliant band that I had only recently been introduced to myself. Just wondered if there are any other New/Current artists that are worth a listen?

A friend recently pointed me in the direction of Temples:

Any other suggestions?

A few soul-influenced bands I'd recommend are New Street Adventure, Men of North Country and The Quangos. Temples indeed are a good shout. New band from Bristol called The Shimmer Band who I wouldn't say are mod, but nevertheless bring something different to the table.
Can listen to pretty much all of these via Youtube/Soundcloud.

I'll second The Quangos.  Saw them supporting The Moons a few months ago in Leeds and they were a lot better than the headliners I thought.  They're giving away a download of their latest EP too.

I'd recommend New Street Adventure. Brilliant tunes, great live and a fairly young crowd at their gigs.

The Strypes are pretty cool, they look about 12 but they make a good noise.

The Bang, from San Francisco. Well worth a listen. Their album, Soul Shangri-la, is a belter...

While not Mod per se, really like The Struts, from Derby.
