Rising Artist-Late of the Pier

This time last year fellow bloggers, like myself, were all up in arms for a little band called MGMT. Now, I feel the music bloggers of the world have found a new psychedelic / funk / electro rock band to geek out about, Nottingham, UK's Late of the Pier. The bands blend of cleaver lyrics, and goofy beats will have you moving for hours on end. Think Does it Offend You, Yeah? meets MGMT meets the Klaxons with 80's synth. The band's debut Fantasy Black Channel was finally released in the US last month after being out in the UK and Europe since the summer. I suggest it is one of the first records you buy this year, I promise it is one that will not disappoint and one that you will really enjoy listening to! With electronica getting bigger and bigger each year, I think this is one band that will be at the front of the pack.
