Lollapalooza 2013: The Best New Bands Worth Checking Out

Sounding like it had been recorded in a disused garage in little over twenty-four hours while containing song titles like 'The Glam Goddess' and 'Diamond Boys', they seemed to have more in common with the likes of Marc Bolan and David Bowie than fellow kindred spirits in lo-fi Wavves or No Age even if the end results did sound uncannily like Brummy eighties indie four-piece Birdland.
