Well here’s a band that I wasn’t really looking for, but they managed a way to find me. We all know the feeling when your friend comes to you with a band you know completely nothing about (and I’m definitely aware of this when making blog posts) and you’re hesitant to check them out. That’s how I was when my friend recommended me Tubelord, a 3-piece band that’s barely making moves out of the UK. But I took a listen to their debut album “Our First American Friends” (..was that titled for wishful thinking?) and became intrigued with the sound. I’d describe it as a mix of the UK math rock scene (Foals, This Town Needs Guns), with hints of American progressive emo and post-hardcore (The Fall of Troy, early Coheed and Cambria).
You can stream this album and more of their songs over at their Bandcamp page (SN: I love Bandcamp, potential Myspace Music killer).
