Best New Band

Bobby Donnie

When we say “new band” this year, we mean really new, in more sense than one. Bobby Donnie has only played a few shows, but the duo of of Stephanie Barber and Joan Sullivan also sound new in the best way. When we saw them at High Zero’s Worlds in Collusion at Artscape, it was the highlight of the weekend. The songs were experimental and yet primal, intellectual and yet visceral, avant-garde and super-old school, like the paintings of Henri Rousseau must have felt 100 years ago. And the “Birthday” song they gave us for our Big Music Issue has become one of our favorite songs. We can’t wait for more.
