(Apologies to the seminal Oxnard punk Band “Stalag 13” for borrowing their awesome artwork! You guys rock!)
Happy New Year! We’re back for the first Top 3 Countdown for the New Year! The best of the Alternative and Indies Rock Bands in the best Top 3 countdown!
First up, at #3 is a folk punk band from Los Angeles, California and their name is “Girlpool.” Its members are Cleo Tucker (guitar, vocals) and Harmony Tividad (bass, vocals). The band does not have a drummer. So there!
#3) Girlpool – Alone At The Show https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YZronpGdStA
At #2 is another cool band. When I saw this for the first time, for some reason, it reminded me of the Buzzcocks, and that can’t be bad! This is a trio from London. It’s cool. Here’s their tumblr page: http://primitiveparts.tumblr.com/
#2) Primitive Parts – TV Wheels https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-uHedhagL0w
At number one is a band that appeared in out “Top 50 Hits of 2015” (FM radio version! In fact, they were aired 12/27/15 and 01/03/16!) From Los Angeles, it’s Prima Donna. Go “Like” their Facebook page. I know you want too! (https://www.facebook.com/PrimaDonnaOfficial/?fref=ts)
