I'd not expected to get all three 'new bands' in one fell swoop, but I have. Thanks to the Humble Music Bundle, I've now listened to FOUR new bands:
They Might be Giants (rather odd! but OK in their way! - we did have an album by them, but I don't recall listening to it);
OK Go, (again quite strange!);
Rather dramatic music from video games from Hitoshi Sakimoto;
and probably the most interesting, Christopher Tin's album Calling All Dawns.
(We already have some MC Frontalot, and Jonathan Coulton; it was thanks to these that we gave the others a chance!)
I still intend to keep looking for fresh music, but I consider my duty by my Challenge done!
