As those who know me best will attest, I’m quite the music-head. Rock, Pop, Jazz; you name it I listen to it. In the wake of Coachella, I’ve compiled a list of seven bands that you NEED to know about.
The Heeby Jeeby Brothers
This group of seven classically trained musicians plays spooky rock music that has been known to give listeners the “heeby jeebys.” None of them are brothers.
As a rotating collective of 14 elderly women, the Boogie Boys have released 37 albums in the last 4 years, all of which fall under their unique Neo-Soul Rock N Rollatin Hip-Hopera Ambient genre. Their newest hit, “Jimmy Carter Fuck Machine,” is sure to shoot this band to the top of the charts.
They say that true art is borrowing from the art before it, and nowhere is that more evident than the beautiful sounds of Mad-Donna. This brother-sister-wife trio churns out re-imagined versions of Madonna songs in a way that is both respectful but also dangerous. “Hike With A Virgin” and “Papa Don’t Reach (For That Remote, It’s My Turn To Watch TV)” are two great tracks to start with.
The Gustav Charlie Moreno-Glass Anduve Experience
This singer-songwriter plays some of the most quietly beautiful songs you’ll ever hear, if you can. GCMGAE plays music so quiet that 95% of human ears are unable to pick up the sound. But if you’re a part of the lucky few who have never been exposed to loud noises, you’re in for a real treat!
Deadly Drum Machines
A 7 piece from Uganda, Deadly Drum Machines has been blowing audiences away with their 7 guitar attack. Often blurring the lines between music and chaos, they’ve been described as “an assault on your ear drums” and “barely listenable.”
The Big Bad Bathroom Brass Band
If you ever use a public restroom in Eau Clair, WI you may just be fortunate enough to catch this group of 6 high-level police chiefs and lieutenants. Using only things in the restrooms, they make sounds that one critic has called “music, I guess.”
Jesus H. Christ
After Jesus Christ, Lord and Savior of all mankind, was crucified, buried and then rose again three days later, he found himself disillusioned. Which is when he started performing his brand of dance music. Playing the keytar hundreds of years before it would be invented, he blew crowds of people away and started the movement we now know as “Christianity.” For a good introduction to his music, check out “Back From The Dead” and “Pop That Pussy (On the Dance Floor)”
