As it turns out, today is the birthday of Doco guitarist Trev Booth and the band’s fans have handed him a nice present in the form of a resounding win over Viva Voce in round 1. They advance to face the winner of today’s match.
Speaking of which, we now have a clash of styles to consider.
Rose Hill Drive: A very un-Boulderlike band from Boulder, CO – hard-rocking, fun-loving, no-frills party rock – raw, emotive, organic. LISTEN
The Raveonettes: Highly influential Danish dream/noise-pop – “…the modern king and queen of melody and mood” – “…dark but not bleak, like the single minded determination caused by crisis that is not quite hope but just as powerful.” LISTEN
And now, time to vote – who do you like?
