Too Many Poets¬†are Witney five-piece who trade in graveyard grunge, a genre of their own coinage.¬† If you‚Äôre not hep enough to translate that, think a post-baggy mixture of The Smiths, The Horrors, Mastodon, The Wytches, and a bunch of other stuff snatched willy and/or nilly from the history of pop music.¬† However you break down their influences, they were selected by the BBC to play this year‚Äôs Truck festival.¬† If you like former GTI stars Orange Vision, give TMP a punt.
Vukovar¬†hail from the brutalist wastelands of Wigan. They celebrate ultra-realism, depravity, monotony, concrete, hedonism, silence. Vukovar are idealists, voyeurs and totalitarians who consider their dark hypnotic release Emperor to be their ‘pop’ album (albeit a vision of pop that contains influences from no wave, industrial, garage rock and early post-punk). ¬†Simply consider them to be good.
Ideal Koala.¬† Post-romantic indie pop.¬† Cello.¬† Neuroses.¬† Goth laments.¬† Melodic cooing.¬† Emile Autumn.¬† Screeching.¬† A performer called Lizard.¬† Unique, that‚Äôs what we‚Äôre getting at.
