New Bands for 2010

With all the retrospectives and ‘best of the decade’ articles in the media, as people mistakenly thinking that we’ve moved into the next decade [it won’t happen until 2010 is over], it’s nice to see some new stuff getting attention. This post from The Guardian introduced me to a few new artists in completely different genres, so to enhance your enjoyment of it, I’ve put together a playlist featuring the acts they mention. Don’t thank me, you’re welcome.

Gabby Young and Other Animals – “We’re All in This Together”
Wrens – “She Sends Kisses”
Heather Woods Broderick – “Wounded Bird”
Little Comets – “One Night In October”
Bok Bok – “Ripe Banana”
Kingdom – “Mind Reader (ft. Shyvonne / vocal dub)”
Fool’s Gold – “Ha Dvash”
