The Wanton Bishops

This newly minted, curiously named and totally awesomeLebanese band is like nothing you would expect coming out of a country riddled with Elissa’s and Melissa’s,all similar sounding and surgically altered. I’m all for supporting local talent and these guys make it so easy. It’s really hard to try to stop myself from listening to them all day. The band is formed of Nader Mansour and Eddy Ghosein. Their raw sound of Blues, Americana and heart thumping beats are quite reminiscent of Mumford and Sons.

They currently have an EP out named Bad Rhyme, that you can find on their Facebook page. It is also available for download through Soundcloud.

My favorites are Whoopy and Sleep with the lights on thought the whole EP is really cool.
