PRESENTED BY GILLIAN CORCORAN
The Wandas spent the better part of 2010 touring the bejesus out of their third album, New Wave Blues. In the process, they caused a few bloggers' jaws to hit the floor at South by Southwest and squashed the competition at WBRU's Rock Hunt battle of the bands. The retro rock charms found on New Wave Blues should mollify anyone put off by the fact that none of these four dudes are actually named Wanda. The catchy and heartfelt "Thank You Note" exemplifies what a hit single should be, "Lose You" gushes lovelorn anguish, and "Please Come Home" proves that sounding like Neil Diamond isn't necessarily something to be ashamed of. Still, it's the Wandas stage show--which manages to be at once tight and bombastic.
