The Bennies are great. So read my Rolling Stone review of their new album Wisdom Machine. Go on.
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.
(for Rolling Stone)
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.
