Re: Favorite new band?
Recently for me it's been Hot Chip.
After seeing them play at work, and having heard their singles played at club nights, i got their albums and im HOOKED!
As for The Mars Volta, well they're the best band in the world to me. Frances is my favourite album ever, i actually think their 2 most recent ones are their weakest, but their still high in my favourite albums list.
Get Frances The Mute.
