Prospector New York, New York
Rock. Remember when people weren’t, well, allergic to the word? Prospector do, and the New York trio preaches the power of rock on every second of its blistering debut album Between 0&1. A hybrid of garage, surf and blues flavors, but planted first and foremost in the punk and hardcore of Prospector’s roots, a record this raw is such a rarity in 2012 that at first it’s a head-turner.
