MySpace Music Find o' the Week

The beauty of MySpace and the Internet is the ability to find bands I might never have heard of...

Today, a few bands that have common roots: all of them came out of the pop-punk band The Halo Friendlies. If you like female singers, these are bands you should check out.

First, check out Scouts of St. Sebastian, fronted by former Halo Friendly Judita, along with her husband, Matt Wignall (Havalina Rail Co., Jackson Rubio Records, etc.) and some members of The Seamonsters. Nice alt-pop with an 80s flavor.

Next up is Ginger Sling, former bass player for the Friendlies. Amazing voice that will lull you into submission. Meanwhile, the latest rumors are that Ginger will be joining Billy Corgan and others as the new bass player in The Smashing Pumpkins.

And then there is the darker, more driving sound of Bloodcat Love. Not female vocals, but featuring former Halo Claudia Rossi on drums.

Check 'em out.
