In this week's Phoenix we hype 11 local bands you should know in 2011.
While the feature includes tasty tidbits like each band's bio, next show around town, and individual live video links, we decided to save a handful of mp3s for our beloved On The Download readership.
Below are downloadable tracks from five of our selections -- Banditas, Stereo Telescope, Doomstar!, RIBS, and cover darlings Night Fruit, photographed above by Kelly Davidson -- so load these hott jams onto your iPod and welcome the new sound of the New Year. Enjoy!
