New Music : Red Cortez / Penfold Gate / Bang Bang Eche

It is quite remarkable that Los Angeles rockers Red Cortez are unsigned, in fact it makes me want to start a record label and sign them up, I think they are really that good. The band are currently supporting The Airborne Toxic Event on their US tour, so if they don't get signed from that things are seriously wrong. They have a digital EP currently available titled "Hands To The Wall", which showcases their high energy but melodic rock tunes. I expect rather large things from this band in 2010. MP3: Red Cortez - Fell On The Floor / Red Cortez

Hailing from Loughborough in the UK, Penfold Gate are set to release their debut single "Pirates" on November 30th. The easiest way for me to describe this band is to imagine a less dancey but more folky Late Of The Pier. "Pirates" changes tempo constantly, meaning you are never quite sure where the band are going to take you next, which is quite exciting for any discerning music fan. They played an impromptu gig at this years Glastonbury, well they could well have an invite in 2010. MP3 Penfold Gate - Pirates / Penfold Gate

Checking in from New Zealand come Bang Bang Eche, who will be releasing their delightfully named "Sonic Death C**TTTT" EP on November 2nd. With all members under the age of 21 and having been together for just over a year, you'd expect the band to sound somewhat chaotic. Except Bang Bang Eche have created a sound that they want to be chaotic, that's the point. Fusing dance beats with punk rock guitars and vocals, they are not just an Enter Shikari rip off, they mean serious business! MP3: Bang Bang Eche - Fist Full Of Dollars / Bang Bang Eche

  4. Penfold Gate are without exageration the second best band I've ever seen live (frankly god himself can't out perform Pete Doherty)The onstage chemistry is immense and the songs are brilliant in every sense of the word. If you haven't heard them or seen them live then I implore you to do so before it costs £40 a ticket!
