sophomor2e620 And Then There Were None: 10 Little Indie Bands vs. The Sophomore Slump

You know how I know sophomore slumps are real things? Because there’s a Wikipedia page about ’em.

Of course, in music terms, the idea of a sophomore slump is by no means a foreign term. Just ask Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, Kaiser Chiefs, or The Polyphonic Spree. And thanks to the ever-growing nature of the blogsophere and “buzz bands,” more and more outfits now find themselves facing the difficult, sometimes impossible, task of following up a much-hyped debut. For this particular feature, the Consequence of Sound news team identifies some of the acts currently dreading the sophomore slump by detailing how they got where they are and how they plan to avoid becoming the next Spin Doctors (ask your older brother).
