It’s no secret around the WGUB that we are fans of Spin Magazine and  We visit them often, and have found a lot of similarities in our tastes for music.  That being said, when they hit us with something like Spin’s 5 Best New Artists for November… we listen.  Eclectic, sometime brilliant, often subtle and powerful are definitely words I use to describe what they’ve shown us… and I gotta say, I really dig most of it!!!  If it wasn’t worthy of your time, we wouldn’t talk about it here… and you never know, you might stumble upon your next favorite artist!!!  So check it out (they include a song under each artist so you can get a good vibe for what they’re selling.) and let us know what you think.

Below the pic is a description from on what to expect:

Discovering great new bands and solo artists is one of the joys of being a music fan. But who has the time to listen to hundreds of EPs and attend shows all-night, every-night to spot those innovative musicians? Turns out, we do.

Each month on, our editors sort through hundreds of new artists to bring you five we believe are especially worth your time. They might be rappers, indie rockers, metalheads, punk sirens, folk singers, electronic artists, world musicians, or…. But what they have in common is that each was hand-picked by SPIN music editor Charles Aaron as an artist worthy of breaking out to a larger audience — i.e., you and your friends.

So check out our picks for November, including their vital stats and new music. And be sure to come back next month for more!
