The National are five displaced musicians from Cincinnati now living in New York. They play smart and bracing rock music that is both beautifully evocative and painfully introspective. Comparisons to American Music Club, Nick Cave, Wilco and Tindersticks have all been made…while certainly flattering to the band, these are but mere touchstones for the uninitiated.
Cool all girl quartet from Gothenburg, Sweden.
Scraps Of Tape
In a small garage in Fjälkinge just outside Kristianstad in the southern parts of Sweden, Scraps of Tape were formed in the beginning of 2001. Five persons with the ambition of playing experimental rock music –among with friends and acquaintances jumping in, the band was developed into a musical collective.
