Want to know why this is one of my favorite albums of the year? Then read my review of Beach Slang‘s debut The Things We Do To Find People Who Feel Like Us for Rolling Stone right here.
CMJ was pretty much overrun by Australians (well, that and by hungry music industry loudmouths always wanting to go see some band they were definitely going to miss and instead going to get a slice)… so I hung out with 10 of them across the week for Rolling Stone.
Booze was drunk, photos were taken, shows were played and sweet conversations took place with, as you’d expect, impressive amounts of background noise. Read the result right here.

I spent an entire week seeing way too may bands, not sleeping enough and drinking far too much.
As a result, these were the acts most deserving of Tone Deaf’s Completely Arbitrary Awards for CMJ 2015.
Have a read… and then listen to all of the bands, because they’re all legit pretty incredible.
Clutch are pretty great. Read my review of their one billionth album, Psychic Warfare, right damn here. (for Rolling Stone)
Eagles of Death Metal are fun. And Zipper Down is better than you, I or anybody probably expected. So read my review of it here. (for Rolling Stone)
