2012 is here and I have to say I got a good feeling when I came across the piece by MTV on Buzzworthy Artists to Watch in 2012 since not only do I listen to 9 of the 11 artists/bands but more so some of these have been the soundtrack I’ve been preaching for some time. I also wonder what rock MTV has been hiding under regarding some of these artists. But in case you don’t know the artists either, you best get caught up fast.
On the list:
Walk The Moon – these guys are solid and put on some of the best shows I saw in 2011.
Alabama Shakes – I’d be shocked if they do not blow up right after SXSW this year. Holy amazing Brittany Howard’s voice.
fun. – anyone who remembers The Format should already be a huge fan of fun. Plus a little track with Ms. Janelle Monae doesn’t hurt!
C’mon Avicii is on this list? So nobody has heard this song before I guess and he doesn’t have any EDM tracks that are played in the clubs.
And Dev had a couple HUGE songs last year….. This one, no?
Frank Ocean and Lana Del Rey, guess they aren’t as big as I thought they already were.
Wallpaper on tour last year with The Dirty Heads, this I didn’t see coming but ok.
Electric Guest and Kendrick Lamar – you two I’ll have to get up to speed with.
