New Track Rundown

I'm surprised more bloggers aren't going wild for Dreamers of the Ghetto. At least, they aren't going wild yet. This band has one of the most captivating and anthemic sounds I have heard in 2011. Last week, I put their grandiose Springsteen-esque track "Tether" on the New Track Rundown and this week their song "State of a Dream" is headlining. The band is playing at TT The Bear's tonight (Wednesday, Oct. 26) so any Bostonians reading this before then sound be making the trek over there later. Their set starts at 9:40. I'll be in attendance so you can say hi to your [least] favorite music blogger. Some other exciting new tracks include "Don't Move" from Phantogram which matches the high bar they set with their debut, last year's Eyelid Movies. For the more adventurous listeners, there is the "Mladek," a hefty helping of epic post-rock bliss from Russian Circles. Listen to those songs along with a slew of great new artists after the jump.

This is the most insane collection of videos I have compiled yet. Just scroll down and look at the stills of each one and you'll get a feel for the diverse and creative musical roller coaster you are about to embark on by watching these. I'll let the videos speak for themselves this time as there is so much awesomeness to be discovered. With such amazing videos coming out every week this year, I couldn't help but think how great it would be if there was a television network that played music videos 24/7 from new and emerging bands. It could foster creativity and aid in promoting innovative up-and-coming artists. In fact, I'm surprised that I'm the first one to think about such a brilliant idea.... oh wait... just watch the videos!
