Time once again for this week’s Top 3 New Artist Videos for the week of April 14, 2015. This week I want to show you my fave videos for the week. Of course, I play these artists and these songs on my regular weekly FM radio show, “What the Funday” on InterFM that is broadcast in Tokyo and Nagoya (and all over Japan on the Radiko.jp network. You can listen to that (if you are in Japan) here: http://radiko.jp/).
First up today is a band from Sheffield, England named, “Slow Down Tallahassee.” Slow Down Tallahassee are Nicola Coleman (vocals, harp, keyboards, bass), Claire Hill (vocals, keyboards, guitar, bass) and Richard Butterworth (guitar). They released their debut single in 2007 and it was entitled, “So Much For Love.” In 2008, they this fabulous single entitled, “The Beautiful Light” from the album of the same name.
But there, the trail goes cold. I can’t find any information about this band after 2011 so the trail has gone cold. But today’s track is too delicious to miss!

At #2 this week is Surfer Blood. Surfer Blood is an alternative rock band from West Palm Beach, Florida. Now they are independent, but used to be signed to Warner Bros. Records. The band has 4 members: John Paul Pitts (lead vocals/guitar), Thomas Fekete (guitar/backing vocals), Kevin Williams (bass guitar/backing vocals) and Tyler Schwarz (drums). The band was originally called Jabroni Sandwich.
Surfer Blood announced their 3rd album “1000 Palms” and that it would be released on May 12th, 2015. So we will be playing stuff from that for you for sure. But, until then, enjoy!

Next up, if you are twisted, you are gonna dig this. Baby Strange is a band from Glasgow that combine the classic punk rock of Ramones with Jesus and the Mary Chain and a surf guitar rock drive into killer tunes. They represent the forefront of a wave of great, fuzzed out and totally rocking guitar bands who who storm the charts… That is if the radio dares to play them. Which they won’t.
But we do here and on our radio show. This is awesome! The video is delightfully cheap and crappy! It’s perfect!
