Seven More Ohio Bands You Should Really Listen To Now

Paste Magazine posted this — — which I happened across this week.  In addition to completely excluding Ghettoblaster’s homebase (Dayton), which I think sucks, there is a band or ten they overlooked.  So here is the second installment of Ghettoblaster’s “Seven More Ohio Bands You Should Really Listen To Now.”

  1. Motel Beds: Progressive pop influenced by everyone from Cheap Trick to The Beach Boys and Swervedriver.
  2. OH Condor: Too slick for lo-fi, too ambitious for slacker rock and too fun for shoegazing.
  3. Mouth of the Architect: Unflinching, atmospheric, metalgaze. stomp.
  4. Me & Mountains: Fully-formed, hook-heavy rock band that nods to Weezer, Killers and more.
  5. Ruckus Roboticus: Concocts a fusion of hip-hop, electronic music and funk.
  6. Tin Armor: Rock quartet influenced by Crazy Horse, Big Star and more.
  7. Skeletonwitch: Roots extend to metal, thrash, punk and rock and roll and the nicest dudes ever.

Seven more to come in the near future…
