Young band who might make the next list: Irish teen rhythm and blues sensations The Strypes


  1. Chase said: Wilco/Jeff Tweedy, The Avett Brothers, Tom Waits, Robin Pecknold/Fleet Foxes, Bon Iver, St. Vincent, and Andrew Bird

    Almost made my list again: Mumford & Sons, Yuck, The Smith Westerns, Billy Corgan/Smashing Pumpkins, Vaccines, and Steve Earle

    Maybe on the next list: Jake Bugg, Palma Violets

  2. On the next list for sure (if they release new material): Stone Roses

  3. The focus is on artists who are currently actively recording and touring. I am tempted to give a shout out to Van Morrison too. Liked his recent album and tour.

  4. People who would have been on the list a couple of years ago: Franz Ferdinand, Bob Mould, Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, Billy Bragg, Black Keys
