Dots Jukebox: New Music Part 5 – The Wytches, Rival Sons & The Rocker Covers

new music 1

As part of the run-up to my 100th Dots Jukebox, I wanted to do something a little bit different. I asked my music loving friends on Twitter to suggest their favourite song by a new artist (or the most recent they can think of), asking them to do so secretly. I compiled all suggestions, and instead of the normal Dots Jukebox evening, I’ve written a one line review of every song and will be revealing them over the course of two days.

Firstly, I give you Wire Frame Mattress, the by The Wytches, as chosen by @lazerguidedblog. This song is from the band’s upcoming album, Annabel Dreamer, which is due out in August.

Rival Sons‘ song Open My Eyes is the new music choice of @mike1infive. This song was released back in April, and from the band’s album Great Western Valkyrie which came out this month.

@ianwebb1982 has selected a song called Shake It by The Rocker Covers, from their 2011 album Revved Up.
