    As the title emplies, name few brand new 2005 acts that you feel will have a grand future.

    Myself:

    Wilderness

    Shoegazer galore! they add many influnces and their self titled debut was rather dandy.

    Clap Your Hands say Yes!

    Just.too.good. You have to hear it to believe it. Think Wilco, Talking Heads and Nuetral Milk hotel all mashed up in one with harmonica and harp.

    ...yeah, they are that good.

    Wolf Parade

    Supported by Modest Mouse and is hailed as the nexct great indei rock act. and they deliever.

    Black Mountain

    A Gun Called Tension

    The latest in the fusion between hiphop and Indie rock. With a critically acliemd self titled debut to their name, these lads might very well be a force to recon with.

    The Magic Numbers



    The Jolly Rogers (<333)

    let's see, folk rock pop singing about pirates? Can it get any better than this? No, and even though these guys have yet to release an LP, or even an EP for that matter, their demo tape is causing much ruckus, gaining critical and fan accliam (rightfully so). Will their first debut measure up to the hype? Yes I believe.

    The Dead Texan

    Ambience at it's finest. This guy is so good it's insane. A name that you will hear plenty of in the upcoming years.

    65 Days Of Static

    The latest in Post Rock. The Rise Of Math was a solid record but with some weak moments, however these lads are looking up to be contenders in the Post rock areana.

    I'll add more.

    I actually prefer El Cielo,but Catch Without Arms is amazing as hell. Their first album Leimotif was rough and unrefined but it really showed the potential that these guys had which has now come to fruition. I'll be seeing them later this month.

    Derdg is the perfect example of why people shouldnt judge bands by their first freshmen efforts. Those lads are developing in lightening pace.

    Im adding Architecture In Helsinki, because they rock my world in so many ways and make me smile as if Im high.

    I think a lot of people judge Dredj by that green cover, the font and their name. If I didn't know their music, I would have sworn they were a nu-metal band.

    I'll admit, they probably didn't choose the best album design for Catch Without Arms. I wouldn't have thought nu metal, but I would certainly have thought it was pop indie tripe.

    Since you guys seem to have some sort of hold on whats new, what are some good post-new wave/new wave-revival bands?

    I am stuck in the eighties when it comes to New Wave...

    Maybe that was meant to be?

    Lovin Dead Texan was just what I was looking for right now.
    Clap Your Hands Say Yeah is pretty good, but I think I would enjoy them much more if I wasn't in such a shitty mood. :ninja

    The Villains: Canadian hard-rock/metal/grunge fusion, with elements of Clutch, primus, Alice in Chains and the almighty Smalls thrown in. The kid that cracks me up...

    LuciDream: Trip-hop, hip-hop, indie rock and psychedelia blended beneathe a goirgeous pop finish. Most of you know these guys by now (and if you don't follow the link then nag someone to re-upload this genius album.

    Neat, another visually challenged victim of frontal lobal damages.

    We need to start herding them into small groups and feeding them high velocity pieces of lead.
