It’s time once again for the Top 3 Indies Artist Video Countdown. The Top 3 best Indies and Alternative Music artists for the week of Nov. 12, 2016!

First up is Suzy Blu from Leeds. Her webpage says, “Dark electric pop from Leeds (UK). Suzy Blu combines heavy old school beats with layers of feedback drenched melody, and experimental driving bass. Suzy Blu is a writer and poet who serves her black coffee vocals on a plate of electronic post-punk attitude.” Today’s track is the 4th of 6 singles she is releasing before the end of 2016. It’s fab! Been giving it lots of airplay on the radio. Here’s her Facebook page too:

#3) SUZY BLU – In The Dark

At #2 is a brand new band from Brighton England. They are called the RPMs. They descibe themselves as, “A rock band not afraid of a good pop tune – they are inspired by the likes of Tom Petty, The La’s, Arctic Monkeys and The Who, but with a little something all their own.” We’ve been playing this on the radio a lot too. They have a Facebook page too!

#2) The RPMs – ‘I Think It’s Stupid But I Think It’s Love’

At #1 this week is a great artist and musician with a sense of humor that the grandparents probably won’t appreciate. Chuckle! His name is Seth Bogart. Seth Bogart is/was the lead vocalist of Hunx and Punx. He has one of the most interesting and fun homepages I’ve seen in a long time. Check it here:

He also has a fun FB page too:

#1) Seth Bogart “Eating Makeup (featuring Kathleen Hanna)”

SPOTLIGHT ARTIST! On our weekly countdown, I usually spotlight at least one cool Japanese rock band. Today is a 3-piece garage rock band from Tokyo who call themselves the Candy Ditches. Candy Ditches consists of three guys who just got together about a year ago! Wow!… Seriously, that’s about all I know about these guys. This song and video is WAY COOL! Play it at maximum volume! Oh, they have a Facebook page too:

SPOTLIGHT ARTIST! The Candy Ditches – Death Ray

Oh, and if you like these artists and these hot tunes, I will be playing all these songs on my FM radio show tomorrow, Sunday November 13 (“WTF? on InterFM 897 8 am ~ 11 am) on a PC or smartphone? Here:

That’s all for today! See you next week when we return to the Top 3 Indies Artist Videos Countdown. See ya! – Mike in Tokyo Rogers
