This week hit us hard with a slew of new guitar-laden albums for us to choose from. We currently have Benjamin Booker and Ty Segall on rotation as we prepare to see both acts at FYF Fest this weekend. Additionally, today brought forth two excellent tracks for us to mull over from Ones To Watch favorites, Tinashe and The Griswolds.
Show of the week
Young talent is plentiful and easy to spot these days, but every once in a while, someone comes along and knocks you off your feet, no matter how much you might have expected it. Such was our experience with Romeo Testa, whose powerful pipes we witnessed on Tuesday evening at the Hotel Cafe.

While we’re certainly as excited for The Strokes and Blood Brothers reunions as anyone, we also screened our five must-watch Ones To Watch acts at FYF Fest.
