Five Local Bands Who Will Be Huge in 2012
While his band Steriogram is on hiatus, Bradley Hanan Carter needed to get some things off his chest. Sean Daniel Stentz, Joseph Sumner, Reese Richardson, Mike Walker, and he have dropped a dark, brooding, exceptionally romantic first EP. Be sure and pop this in the car next time you're out for a late night drive, watching the glittering lights fly by and wondering why things just didn't work out.
1. FIDLAR (Fuck It Dog, Life's A Risk)
Alice Baxley and Ryan Baxley FIDLAR
Unwashed masses of skateboard punks rejoice, FIDLAR has got your number. They're everything our greasy little hearts desire. With singles like "Wake. Bake. Skate." and "Max Can't Surf" FIDLAR won over critics and slackers alike with their brand of chaotic garage rock. They're one of the few bands that can get a mosh pit started at 8 pm at the Echo on a Tuesday night. With an EP that should be absorbed with cheap beer and nachos, they're the band to bet on in 2012.
