Look What I Did release new video, play The End on 02.05

Look What I Did hit you without mercy like a professional boxer - but they do it in a very sophisticated way, they're no thugs, they are like... artsy fighters. The band somehow manages to mix math rock with post punk energy and grandiose melodies sometime reminiscent of Enon and/or the later Faith No More. The band (that placed 17th in our Best of Nashville's Poll for emerging artists recently released this new video - a low budget thing that works perfectly in showcasing their spazzy charm. The band will be playing live at The End on February 5. Highly recommended!

Those Darlins are the Deli's Best Nashville Band of 2009

Those Darlins might be remembered one day as the band that reinvented rock'n'roll by replacing the blues element with the garage one - could this sort of genetic mutation have happened in any other place than Nashville, in any other time than the new millennium? The band's musical recipe is as simple as it's effective, and the results are infectiously charming. Congrats to them for winning The Deli's Best of 2009 Poll (full results here), mostly thanks to the vote from our jury, that gave one a 1 point edge over electronic indie poppers The Non Commissioned Officers - a band with an ever growing line up.


 
Third place for theatrical epic video game celebrators The Protomen, who also won our Best of 2009 Fans' Poll (full results here)
