5 Musical Acts You Should Know About in 2012

The Alabama Shakes rock, plan and simple. Southern rock with a awesome Memphis soul twist.

You will want to compare Boom Chick to The White Stripes and that is not total unjustified. A male guitar playing lead and a female drummer, playing a fuzzy blues rock. Still,there is just an unmeasurable difference in the sounds of the two. This New York duo, just bring a bit of a psychedelic twist to some Bo Diddly blues riffs. They are currently selling a 7' purple vinyl via their bandcamp page. Give Frank & Moselle a try!

Dr. Dog reminds me of an early Flaming Lips with more of a Fuz-Rock/60s Frat Rock/Folk feel. If you understand what I mean, good for you, because I got no idea(?). Still they have a good sound and are definitely a band to watch this year. Their new album Be the Void will be out Feb. 7, 2012

Chiddy Bang are a hip hop group that I have only just started to listen to. But they have a fun, smart style that I thing is missing from most of the Hip Hop community today. They release their first studio album, Breakfest, on Feb. 28, 2012

If you are a fan of Flogging Molly, The Dropkick Murphies, Gogol Bordello, or the Zydepunks, you should do yourself a favor and try to catch a Whiskey of the Damned show. They are out of tour and might be hitting a Pub/Bar/Club near you.They combine a fun and funny vibe with hard Irish Folk Punk.
