New Music Tuesday 8/28/12 featuring The Dunwells, Abandoned Pools, and Kitten

Posted on by .

Looking for new music? Check out these bands that have new releases today!

The DunwellsBlind Sighted Faith

This British folk rock band is re-releasing their debut album today in the US. They are one of my favorite discoveries this year and I love this album. The catchy first single, “I Could Be a King” made my SXSW ’12 mix, but the more I listen to Blind Sighted Faith, the more I fall in love with the beautifully harmonious “Only Me”. The band will be on Jay Leno this Friday.

 

Abandoned PoolsSublime Currency 

Abandoned Pools have some shows coming up in the LA area to celebrate the release of their new record, Sublime Currency (tonight at The Hotel Cafe, Sept. 15th at The Roxy). So…let’s get on to the listening so we can sing along at the shows. Based on this lyric video, I like the direction the band seems to be headed!

 

KittenCut It Out 

I heard this song the other day and almost didn’t even recognize the band. I love it and can’t wait to hear more from the Cut It Out EP that was released today.  Kitten is doing a residency next month at Bootleg Bar playing free shows every Monday night!

Listen! Learn! Love!
