This year’s CMJ Music Marathon comes to venues around New York City in less than two months, and if you’re a veteran of this massive throwdown and you’re planning to go again this year, you’re probably already searching for comfortable walking shoes. CMJ organizers have just announced the first round of artists who will play this year’s extravaganza, and the list includes a few established names, as well as a whole mess of promising newcomers. The Dismemberment Plan, Fuck Buttons, Real Estate, Godflesh, Eleanor Friedberger, Obits, Kevin Drew, Glasser, Pictureplane, Pelican, the Long winters, and Saul Williams are among the veterans. And the list of relative newcomers is long and exciting: Savages, Speedy Ortiz, TEEN, Empress Of, DIANA, Quadron, Hunters, Lovelife, Lee Bannon, King Dude, Still Corners, Yamantaka // Sonic Titan, Ratking, the History Of Apple Pie, Big Black Delta, Ex-Cult, Royal Bangs, Slim Twig, and plenty of others will be on hand. Check the complete list of already-announced names here, and expect plenty more in the weeks to come.
