Check out four more great new artists to watch in 2014 — ADM, Molly Sullivan, Little Lights and Injecting Strangers.   

Best New Bands 2014

A look at some of Greater Cincinnati’s top artists to watch in 2014

0 Comments · Wednesday, January 15, 2014
Local music has been a priority at CityBeat ever since the paper was founded almost 20 years ago. And a huge part of that focus has been on new artists, the lifeblood of any strong music scene. Judging by the new artists who grabbed our attention in 2013, the future of the Greater Cincinnati music scene is in very good hands.  

Livingood, and the Music is Easy

Austin Livingood breaks away from Belle Histoire to create a pair of stunning EPs

0 Comments · Wednesday, January 15, 2014
In 2013, Belle Histoire’s Jane Smith planted new musical seeds with her solo venture Decker while insisting Belle Histoire was merely on hiatus. But when guitarist Austin Livingood stepped up to the solo plate last summer and knocked his debut EP, The Weightless Anchor: By Plane (I), out of the park, the writing was on the wall.  

Sterling Archer's

On its debut album, Archer’s Paradox smartly combines a sharp Pop sensibility with the members’ varied influences

1 Comment · Wednesday, January 15, 2014
Archer’s Paradox formed in 2012, and it wasn’t long before the newly minted six-piece was making a name for itself, grabbing a slot at the inaugural Bunbury Music Festival and earning a growing number of converts.   

Known Pleasures

Inspired by the Beats, other local musicians and early Post Punk, Mardou made waves in 2013

0 Comments · Wednesday, January 15, 2014
Mardou calls its music “Post Punk/Noise Pop shit,” which is as good a descriptor as any. The fresh-faced local quartet had a fruitful 2013, dropping a pair of addictive EPs that recall myriad sonic antecedents (most notably Joy Division and Sonic Youth) yet are intriguing enough on their own to yield genuine excitement about what these guys might conjure going forward.   

From "Eww" to "Ooh"

Pop Goes the Evil embraces the lightness and the darkness in its “pleasantly, pleasurably sadistic songs”

0 Comments · Wednesday, January 15, 2014
Pop Goes the Evil isn’t afraid of the taboo. Murder, isolation, sex, jealousy, profanity, self-examination — you name it, they touch on it.   

Excellent Citizenship

Electric Citizen marks its first year together with a debut EP and unexpected CEA nods

0 Comments · Wednesday, January 15, 2014
For a band that’s been active on the scene for less than a year, Electric Citizen draws on tons of history.
