Current Bands/ Artists with a unique sound?
But when I hear sooo many of today's rock bands, I really think I'm hearing the same freakin band. I can name off at least 6 different Blink 182/ Fall Out Boy sound-alikes. (& just b/c they may be the same genre doesn't mean they can't stand out over the others. The old guys sure did it)
But- I *have* heard a few that stood out to me somehow. Whether it be the overall feel, the vocals, atmosphere. Just *Something* that makes them out of the mold.
Few of mine:
I *want* to say Silversun Pickups, but they've been compared to Smashing Pumpkins. Still, I think among current bands, they stand out sound-wise. Esp. the vocals.
Ima check out some of the bands I'm readin here!
I'm one of those classic rock freaks who actually Likes looking for new sounds. :)
Bon Iver- he's been getting a Lot of attn. lately. I heard "Skinny Love" on NPR & fell in love w/ it right away.
& I've been hearing such a buzz about Animal Collective. I need to hear them again.
I think Muse is another one.
& I need to hear more Deerhunter.
