Most blogged artists: ceo, Women, The Drums
Wednesday 14 July 2010
Swedish indie-pop project ceo continues to be the most popular musical act in the blogosphere on July 13, as recorded on The Hype Machine. Los Angeles indie band Local Natives and rapper M.I.A. are in second and third, while Women and The Drums have just entered the top ten.
Women is an all-male art rock band from Calgary, Canada, whose self-titled debut album earned praise from Pitchfork and other music publications. The band's second album, Public Strain, is due out August 23 in Europe and September 28 in the US and Canada, and a teaser track called "Eyesore" has just been released. Prefix Magazine (prefixmag.com) calls Public Strain "one of the most anticipated releases of the year" and reviews, "This song builds on the sound the group concocted on that debut record-sharp, detuned guitar lines matched with oblique vocals and acres of space to stretch out in-and makes the prospect of Public Strain ever more mouthwatering."
Brooklyn band The Drums dropped a self-titled album on June 7 and is now planning an August 16 release of a single, "Let's Go Surfing," which is already a favorite song at the band's live shows. To promote the single, a remix of that track by the Ravonettes was released and is making its way around the blogosphere. Surviving the Golden Age (survivingthegoldenage.com) writes, "The remix reminds me of The Vivan Girls with a male vocalist. It's the perfect summer track"
