I am always looking for new music and because I seriously have song ADHD and get bored so quickly. Don’t get me wrong, when I hear a really great band or song, it will stay on my playlists forever, but I like variety. People are always asking me where I hear these bands and whatnot and honestly it all comes from a plethora of different places.
However, my #1 starting point is by listening to Alt Nation on XM. I have never wanted XM radio and thought it was silly, but then my boyfriend got it in his car and I began hearing all kinds of awesome bands all the time.
It’s really cool because the band Grouplove held a private concert in July with tickets only to be won through calling in on SiriusXM. Alt Nation first played Grouplove in April 2011. The SiriusXM channel’s support of Grouplove played a key role in the development of the band. This was also the case with Foster the People.
“SiriusXM has been such an amazing supporter of not only our music from the very beginning, but also of good new music everywhere. We are honored to be a part of such a special event,” said Grouplove’s Ryan Rabin. -NEW YORK, July 5, 2012 /PRNewswire/
My favorite Grouplove song is Itchin’ On A Photograph, Alt Nation’s #13 on the Alt Nation Top 18 Countdown.
