I don't know about Breakthrough bands but a few bands (I like) are releasing new material; The Kills, Doves, Sons and Daughters, Metric, The Black Keys, My Morning Jacket, M83, Ladytron, Wolf Parade, Massive Attack and the Postal Service.
I'd hazard a guess that Foals will be quite big this year. The Wombats too (not to my taste though I may add).
[quote:1359a1cc34="my-angel-rocks"]I really liked the EP with Time to Pretend and Kids on it, but the album left me a bit flat. Didn't really find anything else as catchy as those two songs.[/quote:1359a1cc34]
Purchased the album quite a while ago and have to say its most def a grower, some of the initially overlooked tracks seem to work their way into your consious.
I just recently picked up the new School of Language album and it's probably my favourite release so far this year. Disappointment '99 is probably the best song I've heard this year too. I think that he / they are playing Electric Picnic too, so everyone going should check him / them out.
And of course, you can take a wee listen over [url=http://www.myspace.com/schooloflanguage]here[/url].
I agree with the School Of Language mention. I think it's one of the guys from field music who themselves were excellent. I look forward to the electric picnic show. Rockist Pt. 1 was one of my top tunes of the year so far
Yeah, it's David Brewis from Field Music. I seen him play a solo show supporting Caribou a while ago and I wasn't that impressed, but he has a full band with him now, so I imagine the live experience will be much better.
The three guys who were Field Music are also in another band called The Week That Was, alongside a few more musicians including Pete Gofton from Kenickie.
They're both playing near me next weekend, so I think I shall be heading down to that.
Zeppelin - don't knock em til yiv tried em. They do 'the blues', but you'll feel like a cliff has fallen on top of you after givin them a wiz.
The Silver Beatles - These guys have turned pop on its arse. They're not bloody bad musos either. That Lennon cunt is so smug though. I'm thinkin of poppin four in his back.
Catcher In The Rye - great read.
Nirvana - they'll never come to nothin. It's all been done already. Bands like the Food Fighters, The Jeremy Vines, The Oslo Rans, Butch Vig and The Destroyers, and Destiny's Child are already in there with this style of meaningful metal. I believe Rod Hull has a band called 'Emu Kids like my crack', and they have been rockin out indie-heavy style since Grotbags was a virgin.
I so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so need some kip.
Take me away from this friggin computer.
[quote:64db2e53a8="tenrabbits"]I think the foals and the ting tangs (ting tings?) are both gonna be big - plus Sam Sparro (check out the track black and gold.. it's amazing).
But the best track I've heard in a while was Paris by friendly fires..
Check it oot![/quote]
My crystal ball must have been pretty clear there at the start of the year! I would add - the new song by Friendly Fires, Jump in the Pool, is completely magic, so hopefully they'll reach the levels of the others!

I caught that song on TV recently and was bowled over, it was superb. Must get on their myspace and listen further.
Friendly Fires have been one that I have been following from the start of the year so made sure I caught them at Oxegen. Really good live Ed-lead has a very 'Mick Jagger-esque/flailing octopus' movement dance style, never stands still great to watch. They are really tight as a group, concerned with what they are doing and everyone is thoroughly involved on stage.
