How to Describe a Great New Band

One of the challenges of listening to music that (practically) no one has heard of is in trying to accurately describe what it sounds like in a quick and understandable fashion.

As some friends and I headed up to Boulder for a concert on Friday night, we brainstormed to create an effective formula for describing new bands in such a way. It's very simple actually. Evoke the sounds of two different bands and add a location to the description. The hard part for me is in avoiding the temptation to name another obscure band in the comparison.

So here is my depiction of three bands I've been listening to lately - starting with the guys I just saw live on Friday night:

1) Drive By Truckers - Imagine Pearl Jam growing up in rural Alabama listening to Lynyrd Skynyrd. (Recommended Album for southern-fried rock neophytes: Decoration Day)

2) Bloc Party - The Cure meets Blur at a supercharged British dance party. (Recommended Album for novices to the new wave of old school 80's dance rock: Silent Alarm)

3) Old 97's - The Kinks meet (early) Wilco at a backyard summer barbeque. (Recommended Album for new recruits to the alt-country scene: Too Far to Care)

There is actually a lot of good new music out there. You just wouldn't know it by listening to Top 40 stations. (My apologies to Brittany and Nelly fans.)

Comments:
Solely on your rec, I gave The Drive By Truckers a listen via Rhapsody tonight. They aren't too bad, but I think I still like CCR best for my rockabilly music. Of course, CCR may be a little too mainstream for you :)
 
I admit to being a bit of a music snob, however, CCR is quite good and I'm a big fan of theirs. Rockabilly is good stuff. Hopefully, you listened to My Sweet Annette by DBT. That's a classic.
 
HAPPY HOLIDAYS TO YOU. May you be forever blessed with love and peace.
