So I couldn't sleep so I thought I would write about a couple bands I heard recently that I really like.
A Brooklyn based band led by Brent Bechtel.
I can't figure out how to upload songs yet... but if you go to their myspace page listen to Hundred Flowers. It's my favorite song. Dirty drums, screamy vocals, minimal - vocal, guitar, drums.
Here are some upcoming shows.
Bullette's "The Secrets" was reviewed in ORIGIVATION magazine by Kevin Keating:
"Monika Bullette's debut album, The Secrets , may be the best album you haven't heard. Terribly imaginative and completely novel, The Secrets is an indie orgasm - honest, intelligent, at once melodic and experimental, and utterly fearless. And, unlike most indie music, Bullette is actually indie-pendent, written, performed, produced and engineered all by herself (with a little help from collaborator Hangnail Phillips). Don't be fooled, though, by the singer/songwriter label - Bullette is a singer/songwriter like Elvis Costello is a punk rock band. Seriously, now, kids, this entire album is available FOR FREE on her website. Just try it. It costs you nothing, and even if you're not crazy about the album, I'm sure you'll agree that she is a genuine artist - unrelenting and unpretentious."
