NextWave- Back To The Future!

There is an exciting new music movement that is not Rap, Grunge, Emo or Pop. It's called NextWave and is heavily influenced by The New Wave movement of the 1980's.

NextWave songs are synthesizer driven, feature detached vocals and otherwordly themes, much in the style of predecessors like The Cure, Depeche Mode and Duran Duran. And they're gaining in popularity.

Many Nextwave bands are receiving mass airplay, selling out concerts and moving millions of CDs. NextWavers like The Killers, Hot Hot Heat, Interpol are reviving the essence of a musical niche that was thought to have become extinct long ago.

It's enough to make you want to break out a skinny tie and "Members Only" jacket from back in the day.

Here is a suggested list of a few of the latest and greatest NextWave anthems:

Tear You Apart- She Wants Revenge
I Want to Be Buried In Your Backyard- Nightmare of You
Sometimes the Sun- The Lashes
This Isn't It- Giant Drag
Trouble With Dreams- Eels
Hysteria- Muse
Helicopter- Bloc Party
It Dawned On Me- Calla
Spent On Rainy Days- Bright Eyes
I Predict a Riot- Kaiser Chiefs
Here Comes a City- The Go-Betweens
Hidden Spaces- The Morning After Girls
Maybe I Should- I Am Kloot
We Both Go Down Together- The Decemberists
Unconditional- The Bravery
The Letter A- Black Tie Dynasty
Rebellion (Lies)- Arcade Fire
Goodbye Horses- Psyche
Out of Control- She Wants Revenge
Anyone Out There?- Rialto
Bridge to Nowhere- The Like
Goodnight Goodnight- Hot Hot Heat

Happy Listening,

-DJ Craig
