LISTEN: Amazing Radio (5 July)

There's nothing I enjoy more than finding a new band to play for you. Even though I may just stick with one or two of their songs on the show, my hope is that you'll seek 'em out on your own if it's something you dug hearing. I spun these artists for the first time on this show:

HOLOGRAMS - Swedish punk band has the Spirit of '77
PLAYLOUNGE - LDN noise-pop duo
NOW, NOW - if you were a fan of female-fronted, heartland bands like Magnapop and Frogpond, you'll love this trio from Minneapolis.
WET MOUTH - 2 girls + 2 guys based in Liverpool with members from England, Norway, Canada and Los Angeles. Elements of grunge, post-punk and pop are all present here.
COVES - dreamy guy/girl duo with a noisepop undercurrent
WAILIN' STORMS - Gothic Americana by trio from NYC via Corpus Christi.
GET PEOPLE - LDN electro-pop trio
CAAN - stylish, nocturnal synth pop (think Jamie Woon) from ex-Ou Est Le Swimming Pool member Caan Capan
ALUNAGEORGE - Pichfork-approved dubstep influenced electro-soul duo
