Thursday 17 March 2011
American indie rock band TV on the Radio moves into first place as the music blogosphere's hottest act, according to The Hype Machine on March 17. UK rock band Yuck takes second place while American lo-fi indie artist Cloud Nothings advances into third.
Australian band Seekae, a three-piece electronic outfit hailing from Sydney, debuts in the day's top ten thanks to Music Alliance Pact's (MAP) monthly listing of up-and-coming music acts from around the world. Blogger Who The Bloody Hell Are They? (www.whothehell.net) shared the track "Gnor" and described the band's upcoming sophomore album, +Dome, as "fantastic." "I'm super excited since their previous album, The Sound of Tree Falling on People, is one of my favourite Australian albums of all time."
American indie rock band The National returns to the top ten after releasing a new song called "Think You Can Wait," which is included on the soundtrack for the upcoming Tom McCarthy-directed film Win Win. "It's a beautiful mellow track featuring backing vocals from Sharon Van Etten," writes Swedish blogger Birds Need Feet (birdsneedfeet.blogspot.com).
