CMJ Music Marathon 2012

Now until Oct 20th, hundreds of bands and music fans will take over New York City for the annual CMJ Music Marathon.  While CMJ may lack the “big names” you find at Coachella and Lollapalooza, it totally makes up for it with shear volume.  There are soooo many bands and artists playing, it’s actually a bit nerve wrecking, trying to decide which acts to see.  But what really makes CMJ rad, is the music discovery aspect.  This is where you’ll see the next “big name” and it will be in a random Manhattan basement with 10 other lucky people.  Personally, this is the music festival I want to attend most.  One of these days my dream will become a reality, but until then I am happy writing about it.  And hopefully helping this year’s attendees deal with the daunting task of combing through all the music they have at their fingertips.  So if you’re having a tough time deciding who to see this week, consider these artists/bands.  And last but not least, have fun discovering your new favorite band.

[on the road] The Jezabels

The Australian moody-pop quartet The Jezabels have been all over the world and back. After finishing a sold-out tours of the UK and Australia, the four will be returning to the U.S. and Canada in November to tour with the Canadian indie rock band Hey Rosetta! The tour traverses up the West Coast starting November 8th, and runs across Canada with stops into some Northern U.S. Midwest cities, finishing in Montreal on November 26th. The Jezabels will also make a quick stop in New York to play a headlining show at The Mercury Lounge on November 21st (tickets).

The Jezabels released their debut LP Prisoner in Australia on September 16, 2011, meriting four stars from Rolling Stone in Australia, who heralds that the album is, “a deeper, denser, and darker sound than anything we’ve heard from the four piece, one that requires patience and persistence, but pays off handsomely.” The LP debuted at #2 on the ARIA chart (Australian Recording Industry Association), and after four weeks on the chart is still holding strong, coming in at #18 this week.

Prisoner will be released in Canada on Dine Alone Records on November 8th and the U.S. release is yet to be announced. A preview of the album can be found in their newest track “Endless Summer” (download it below). As proclaimed by The A.V. Club, “Pitched somewhere between The Cranberries’ edge-of-the-world howl and Arcade Fire’s fiery emotional release, (their three EPs) shot the Sydney quartet to the top of the Australian charts; its forthcoming full-length debut seeks to do the same internationally.”

The band’s Dark Storm EP, released late last year and recently certified gold in Australia, has of late earned The Jezabels substantial recognition in their home country. At the AIR Australian Independent Music Awards, The Jezabels were the only band to win multiple awards, winning both for which they were nominated—Best Artist and Best Single/EP. Dark Storm has also garnered them nominations for three ARIA Awards for Single of the Year, Breakthrough Artist, and Best Independent Release.
