Closing out 2012- High Voltage & Dirty Glitter style
What a year! My friends over at High Voltage have done an incredible job at bringing the best in up and coming bands to listeners of Dirty Glitter but to WBGU as well! This segment has become wildly popular with my listeners and I can’t wait to continue my collaboration with them in 2013!
Here are the latest bands to be featured during the 12.27.12 show of Dirty Glitter:
Arc & Stones
Early Spring 2012: Take an American band from the general Los Angeles area over to the UK where they introduce themselves to the music world and stoke curiosity via a little single called “Female Robbery”, getting nods of approval from major music outlets like Earmilk, Nylon Magazine, NME, and BBC Radio 1…all while keeping a closed lid on their identity. A textbook example of a “buzz band”: everyone from fans to PR to labels wanted to know who these guys were and what else was up their sleeves. Less than 8 months later and back in the US the enigmatic Neighbourhood have played sold out shows on tour with Paul Banks (Interpol) and have more than their share of labels courting them. Fronted by Jesse Rutherford (a mere 20 years old), the Neighbourhood is a five-piece band who take Rutherford’s hip hop background to the place where it melds with indie-pop and rock seamlessly. One EP released, a full album on the way in 2013, you’ll do well to keep your eye on the Neighbourhood.
