A two-for-one! I’m giving a couple shots to some emerging talent that shows potential, and they’re two very different bands.
The Murdocks, an established band from Austin who this year release their new one, Distortionist are a hot, loud, and angry band. They’ve been through a lot, too, reorganizing almost completely after their 2005 album Surrenderender. They’re back with a new sound, a new attitude, and a new single.
On the other hand, you’ve got Mark Berube and the Patriotic Few, who make almost gospely indie folk. Their new EP, titled Tailored to Fit is a solid singer/songwriter release that leaves you both wanting more, and wanting to hear him play live. Good stuff all around. Ain’t you lucky you come to my site?
