Just started listening to Tallest Man on Earth. Fucking love it! Also I started listening to Vetiver about a month ago when they were announced on this board as a rumor and I'm really digging their sound. Too bad their place on the schedule conflicts with other shit I'm trying to see so I'll most likely miss out on them.
After going over everyone's top 10 lists and Youtubing all the bands people are stoked to see I have now discovered Yacht, The Tallest Man on Earth, The Very Best, Shabazz Palaces (has the guy from Digable Planets.. pretty cool), Portugal the Man, Brother Ali, Mike Snow, Phantogram and Mumford & Sons!
Local Natives have shot up my "excited to see" list. Harmonies remind me of the Fleet Foxes, but with less of a classic rock influence and a little more interesting songwriting. Warning Sign might be the best Talking Heads cover ever.
And Phantogram is really cool. Album takes some nice, unexpected turns.
Interstate - what Drive By Truckers album did you start with? I'm still sleeping on 'em but want to give 'em a shot.
Just now checking out Mumford & Sons and I'm quickly falling in love! Has sort of an Avett Brothers feel which is just insanely awesome in my book. I love the good mix of both dance and folk-inspired bands in the lineup.
