Obscure Sound: Best of July 2008


Here are the picks from July, a month that saw just about everything from stylish electro-rock to avant-garde “prepared piano” pieces. I’ll be heading up to DC for college in two weeks, so I imagine that new opportunities will arise for the site’s content. I’m not accustomed to living in a city where shows are actually conveniently located, so that should be a nice change of pace. I’m planning to expand the site shortly with more diverse forms of content, with several features and plans getting underway once the rush of classes subsides a bit. In the meantime, enjoy the compilation and variety of bands expected to be featured in the coming weeks, and have a great weekend.
