WHAT HE SOUNDS LIKE

WHY YOU SHOULDN’T MISS HIM
Tomas Barfod is a Danish DJ and producer who makes incredibly dreamy/ethereal electronic music. He began as a drummer, but moved from drums to DJing when he created the electronica duo Filur (with Kasper Bjorke). Since then he has released two solo albums (the latter of which came out this summer) which remain true to his more rave-style past but with vocals that are brooding and emotional—majority of which are done by Nina K. His music is incredibly layered and far too multi-faceted to just be called dance music but it certainly is dance-inducing!

Mike Watt got his start as the bassist for the Minutemen, helping to create wildly influential music that drew on all different styles of music. Watt officially started his solo career in 1995 and has released five albums since then all of which were minimal in production value and all about the music. His lyrics focus on story-telling, but most importantly he’s a bass legend, providing a driving rhythm and melody to his music.

WHAT THEY SOUND LIKE

WHY YOU SHOULDN’T MISS THEM
The only information provided by Meatbodies’ press release states that the Los Angeles born-and-bred band are “heavy, groovy, psychedelic, and headbanging.” Formally known as Chad & The Meatbodies, Chad Ubovich’s music speaks for itself; classic, thrashy garage rock with enough guitar solos to you last you through an entire Sabbath record. As the live guitarist for Mikal Cronin’s band and touring buddies with Ty Segall and Mac DeMarco, Chad and his Meatbodies are building the rock ’n’ roll resume to kick ass on a global scale.

WHAT THEY SOUND LIKE

WHY YOU SHOULDN’T MISS THEM
Broncho have got fuzzed-out, turned-up, house-party-ready garage rock down to a science. With pounding drums and hook-laden melodies, BRONCHO are as equally inspired by Weezer’s slacker power-pop as The Stooges’ off-the-wall energy. Hailing from Tulsa, OK, Broncho’s Burger Records-ready sound have made them a major favorite for rock ’n’ roll fanatics everywhere.

WHY YOU SHOULDN’T MISS IT
How To Dress Well’s Tom Krell has at the forefront of the perpetually blog-dominating wave of indie R&B since his 2010 debut, and continues to push his intensely meditative, sonically dense balladry in exciting directions with the 2014 release of What is this Heart? Armed with the voice of the saddest angel in heaven and inspiration from the likes of TLC and Aaliyah, Krell is a modern pop songsmith whose new live band is sure to bring cuts from his three stellar albums to new heights.
