5 Supergroups That Need to Happen
The last few years have seen the return of the supergroup, as all-star acts like Atoms for Peace, Wild Flag and Divine Fits have reminded jaded indie kids that good things can happen when musicians from different groups and backgrounds join forces. Here at Diffuser.fm, we’re massive fans of such collaborations, and we wish more rockers would put aside their egos, step out of their comfort zones and partner up with folks they wouldn’t — and perhaps even shouldn’t — think to play with. Below are our picks for 5 Supergroups That Need to Happen.
She and Kim
Who needs M. Ward and Matt Johnson? It’s the lovely ladies people care about in these co-ed indie duos.
Forget Paul McCartney. Rivers Cuomo is a Nirvana superfan, so why not let the king of geek-rock geek out and front his favorite band?
Siouxsie and the Banjos
Goth goes hillbilly as post-punk’s vampire queen pairs with some neo-folkies and embraces her inner Appalachian howler. Get into it!
The Button Pushers
Whether these dudes just push buttons, as critics allege, they certainly push the buttons of those who hate the whole EDM craze.
Complete F—ing Recipe for Disaster
These troublemakers wouldn’t produce a lick of music, but we’d wanna be a fly on the wall.
