Route For The Underdog is a fortnightly half hour podcast dedicated to the best new emerging and unsigned artists. I regularly browse music sites like Bandcamp and Soundcloud looking for the latest underground releases from the newest bands from all over the world.
Any band or artist that would like to feature on my podcasts, or on the Dick's Recommendations page, please get in touch via
, twitter or facebook. Send me a link to your latest song or release and I will give it a listen and if I like it, I will pop a song on my next podcast and/or recommend the song or your EP/LP on the site.
Hello April fools and welcome to my 99th installment of RFTU - might be the last one for a while as the missus is due to give birth to our second child any time so not sure when I'll get time to do the next one. Anyway, 'tis a good one to leave you with, 9 cracking new bands to feat upon!
'Sick' is the latest fuzzed-up offering from Dutch duo Nancy Acid.The driving opening track 'Antenna' is a superb JAMC-aping gem whilst the grimy EP centre-piece 'Kids' has a dirty rock 'n' roll riff which will leave you needing a wash.
The two-piece complete this fine 3-song release with short, garage punk of 'Hate Song', which again features gnarly fretwork and some very catchy backing 'ohhhs'.
