  8. When Chris Cheveyo abandoned the finalized recording of his heavy instrumental post-rock band towards the end of 2010, it wasn’t out of a general cynicism towards expansive, heady music. There was just something about that specific palette of tones and the cut-and-dry melodrama of the songwriting that wasn’t satisfying anymore. So he culled his old habits and made a fresh start with Rose Windows, a Seattle-based sextet that drew upon everything from American folk to West Saharan guitar rock, from pentatonic proto-metal to traditional Persian music, from the darker corners of California’s early psych scene to the hazy atmospherics of contemporary drone artists.
  9. Desaparecidos are a five-piece post-hardcore/emo/indie/punk band from Omaha, Nebraska that was briefly active from 2001-2002, but have been back and fully formed since 2012, plus a brief reunion in 2010. Although all their members have been active in numerous other projects, it’s kind of hard to ignore who’s fronting this band. It’s none other than Conor Oberst, who is best known for his main project, Bright Eyes  as well as being involved in numerous other projects, such as the Mystic Valley Band, Monsters of Folk, and most recently, solo . Desaparecidos are another amazing band to add to an already impressive resume, and quite different from any of the aforementioned.

  24. The dark soul of Austrian musician Hackmonocut’s music produces a feeling of melancholy, driven by humming, distorted rock guitars, creating his ‘alternative rock noir’ sound. ‘The Sum of My Parts’ is a collection of dark and feral songs full of irony and social criticism, which tell of love, murder, and failed politics. Hackmonocut began in 2012 as a single man show. A busy year of songwriting and home recording followed, culminating in the release of his eleven track debut album ‘In The Land Of Basement Hobby Rooms’. Second album ‘The Sum Of My Parts’ is released on 14th August 2015. The new tracks focus more on love and murder than politics. The album is rages less but offers uncompromising dark alternative rock songs.
  25. As 11.
  26.  Hailing from Olympia, Vexx is heavily indebted to late 70s American punk with a sound akin to bands like Legal Weapon or the Avengers, but with even more of a rock ‘n’ roll edge than those bands and a vocalist just as soulful and powerful. – Bandcamp
