Young Brother

While Bandcamp is easily the best source for selling your music, there is one major flaw to it. It is just very difficult to find new bands that you didn't know about in the first place. Luckily, one of the newer features makes up for that. When downloading The Pattern Traced's new EP (feature up soon!), it showed recommendations from the band. One of them was Young Brother, claimed to be "the best unsigned indie rock band he's heard." Though that's a rather hyperbolic statement, there is some truth to that. Reminiscent of Local Natives due to the layered, dreamy guitar patterns and tribal drum rhythms, the band gushes talent and creates songs mostly made by experienced and established groups. The songs may run together a bit, but the pure creative ability displayed by the band is undeniable. The statement will not be true for much longer, as Young Brother shows all the necessary skills to be signed to a label. But unless people download the EP and share the music, this will not happen, so feel free to download the album (at a price of your choice) on the band's Bandcamp page here.
