Sweet New Find - Arctic Monkeys!
I'm sure many of you think to yourselves, "how does these blogger types learn about this new music?" or "what methods do bloggers use to find music that is new?" Since I'm having server issues and cant' post anything, I'm taking this opportunity to tell you one of the many ways I personally discover new music. Catalog Ads! My favorite one is Best Buy, they have this fantastic section called "Find 'em First". This fits my needs perfectly because it shows artists who haven't been over-hyped by the media or that are all over television and magazines. They're motto is "Say you heard 'em before they were big" and this especially rings true with the band featured in this weeks article - The Arctic Monkeys!
The Arctic Monkeys are this new indie band from the UK that have a fresh sound. They are probably going to be pretty big according to the ad, so its good that I "found them first". I'm going to link to their myspace music page, which is this cool site where you can listen to a few tracks from the artists (I didn't need a best buy ad to tell me about that). I don't know if their album has come out yet but when it does you can get it for 7.99 at Best Buy (they are cheap and informative!). Luckily, you have me here to read these ads and tell you what's going to be hot, because if you were listening to the mainstream media, most of you would probably be listening to New Kids on The Block right now.
Go to the Arctic Monkeys Myspace!
