Most blogged artists: Yuck, The Kills, Cloud Nothings
Wednesday 16 March 2011
UK rock band Yuck overtakes Fleet Foxes frontman Robin Pecknold in the top spot as the music blogosphere's most popular act, according to The Hype Machine on March 16. American indie rock band TV on the Radio moves into second place, while Pecknold drops to third.
Following the release of the track "Satellite," rock duo The Kills, formed by American singer Alison Mosshart and British guitarist Jamie Hince, just released a second single, "DNA," from their upcoming fourth album Blood Pressures, due out in April. Blogger Fluxblog (www.fluxblog.org) writes that the two tracks "have been rather subdued numbers - good and interesting, but not exactly compelling as standalone singles." Blogger Off the Radar (www.offtheradarmusic.com) writes that "DNA" is "just as good" as "Satellite." "They're two for two so far."
American lo-fi indie artist Cloud Nothings, the moniker of Dylan Baldi, represents his home turf in the Music Alliance Pact's (MAP) monthly listing of up-and-coming music acts from around the world. Blogger I Guess I'm Floating (www.iguessimfloating.net), who shared the track "Understand At All," writes: "Cloud Nothings has it all: DIY bedroom charm, memorable melodies and jangly guitar work lost somewhere in an era of grunge and punk rock."
