You want the bands? You can't handle these bands! Haha, of course you can, and here's a couple more newbies that I think you'll like. Even Jack Nicholson walking the wall will dig these ones.
Hailing from a second-tier city north of Philly, these guys started out as an instrumental band, and then branched into lyrics and vocals. Accessible indie-rock – I’ve never played them for anyone without that person saying “who is this? This is good.” Yup, it is good; have I ever steered you wrong (don’t say “what about Protomartyr”)? The link of choice for the Fangers is "Sisterly:"
You want to rock hard? Here you go. I like to think of these guys as a harder version of the Black Keys. A duo that sounds like a wall of sound, but with tunefulness and hooks aplenty. They are a go-to band for me when I want rave up after rave up. They toured last summer with the Foo Fighters, but I want to see them as the headliner. Here is "Figure It Out" - be careful, there is a parental advisory.
The Lovers Key
I’ll admit that I don’t love every song by this Florida band, but I’m super hooked on some of their songs. We saw them open for the English Beat in Ft. Lauderdale. Now, most opening acts suck, but these guys proved that you ALWAYS need to get there early so that you don’t miss out on catching a really good band with a bright future. Anyway, they play soulful music with a horn section that is a throwback to the 60s. it’s fresh and nostalgic at the same time. When I heard them play “Saturday Night,” I was hooked. And after the show, the band came up to the bar area where we were hanging out and they were cool people. So there you have it: get there early and see the opening act. You never know. Here’s “Saturday Night” and it’s wonderful.
That's it for now, BRP fans. I'm back with a vengeance now. I have a few more things all written up and ready to go, but I'll give you a chance to catch up, watch some great videos and hear some terrific songs. You can get slowly caught up. But don't be too slow! You don't want to miss out on all the great things I have in store for you. Oh, and come late August, the fall concert season kicks in, and I've got a lot of tickets in hand already. Check back often for reviews, photos, opinions and other fun-filled posts.
I love that you are reading this, and I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoy posting. Many thanks, and have a great day!
My name is Bill, and I live in the greater Philadelphia area. I love music, and I have a lot of opinions. This site is primarily focused on music, but sometimes I get off track. I hope you enjoy.
