It’s time again, where I wash my hands of the this whole thing and let you the angry mob decide which of the Bands of the Week from March, 2012 are going to be the Band of the Month and received an automatic bid into the Band of the Year Poll.
UPDATE: I forgot to mention that the poll is on the sidebar to the left.
We had five Bands of the Week this month so let’s recap:
Week 1 – A Social State are a fine indie rock band from Scranton, PA
Week 4 – Northbrook Garage – those soulful suburban “babies” from Northbrook, IL
Week 5 – Finn Bonel – the amazing artist from South London, England
Vote now! One vote per person (or at least per computer) (unless you can beat the system) Just vote!
Hailing from Scranton, Pennsylvania – home of The Office, Indie Rock band A Social State went old school on their most recent release. Everyone’s Your Friend was recorded live direct to analog tape. This method helped to create the warm and rich sounds of heard on the record.
One stand out track on the album is Arcadia. The song begins with a howl of feedback and kicks in with a powerful driving beat and Edward Cuozzo’s powerful vocal onslaught. The song broods and soars all the while being driven forward by the relentless rhythm section.
Dads and Cigarettes is a gentle, almost lilting song and serves to show-off the depth and versatility of this young band.
You know the drill by now – check them out and Like and Follow.
