Bands to Watch 2011 :: Scott McDonald, Surfing On Steam

Scott McDonald runs the LA-based music blog, Surfing On Steam, and is also a contributing writer for the renowned Aquarium Drunkard. Every once in a while I need to balance my garage-psych yang with a little electro-ambient ying and Scott’s site usually has just the anecdote. I turn to it often to troll his recommendations in those categories. Here are Scott’s picks for Bands to Watch in 2011.

Young Montana?

The Vaccines

Twin Sister

Star Slinger


Ringo Deathstarr
