I know I’m not alone in recognizing that in the past few years music culture evolves at a ridiculously fast pace. And, unless you’re a music blogger or music critic, it’s hard to stay on top of all of the best and quickest rising bands and artists. Just last October we listed our Top 25 New Artists of 2013. That list included GEMS, Wet, FKA Twigs, CATHEDRALS, MØ, Banks, Salt Cathedral, and more awesome bands that you can shake a stick at. Well, here are 15 more new and exciting bands I’ve discovered since then that are pushing culture forward and worth your attention.
There are plenty of releases by relatively established artists coming out soon that I’m incredibly excited about (Angel Olsen, St. Vincent, Mac DeMarco, etc). Nonetheless, if you’re looking for a collection of the best brand new artists to get excited about in the next few months, then this list and playlist are for you.
