16musiciansfeature Fifteen More Acts That Need to Tour America

Don’t get us wrong; we know the difficulties surrounding the logistics involved in touring the United States, especially when the artist or band in question’s from overseas. Or worse, foreign and obscure. Just as with our piece on acts from the United Kingdom, we don’t wish to put the onus on the artists. Rather, consider this an open letter of lament, or perhaps a wishlist to the promoter equivalent of Santa Claus. Without further ado, here are 15 artists from the UK, Japan, Sweden, and beyond that we are especially anxious to see grace these American shores.

On a more positive note I’ve seen several of these acts. No one was drunk and the bands played out of their skins. Some good tips here Cos.

Saw jj open for the xx once, and it has to be the worst opening performance I’ve ever seen. Both members were drunk and barely played.

I saw The Field play recently in San Francisco by himself. It was neither peaceful nor ambient; mostly skull-crushing, rhythm-less harsh noise. The only recognizable track was ‘Sweet Slow Baby’, which happens to be my least favorite Field track. Guess I’ll have to go see a ‘real’ show sometime.

He had the drummer and bass player with him in San Diego back in September. I recognized at least a couple of grooves off Looping State Of Mind. It was banging, and very interesting to see kids flailing their limbs toward the drummer rather than the DJ.
