I’d like to recommend a band. A band who don’t quite have the status of “next big thing” but who, in my opinion, thoroughly deserve it. A band who, as far as I can tell, have been on the verge of being “big” for about 5 years.
I recommend them not because the lead singer and guitarist is an old friend of a friend, but because I think they’re music and songwriting is fantastic, and because I think they have a really unique sound that should be appreciated by more people.
I appreciate that music is subjective. You may hate them. But please try them out? They are Iko and they’ve just released a little video of their recent tour of Denmark. They live at http://www.ikomusic.com and http://www.myspace.com/ikomusic
