WUW? Recommends Dope Side Projects | Bad Books - Bad Books II

WUW?'s, newly designated "side project" specialist, Brittany Jean, has been hard at work compiling an anthology of important side projects. From indie pop and metal to hip hop and folk, side projects have the tendency to take on lives of their own and can even be as significant as the original band (think Postal Service, Blaqk Audio, Maximum Balloon, Angels & Airwaves, Broken Bells, Father John MistyTom Morello, or Dustin Kensrue). 

Although, not their first project together, Kevine Devine and Andy Hull's (Manchester Orchestra) band Bad Books, has officially entered into the WUW?'s Favorite Side Project Hall of Fame. Bad Books II, combines the energetic pseudo-post pop punk, arena rock sound of Manchester Orchestra with DangerMouse-esque crafted indie pop sound complete with a sort of folk induced song writing sensibility.

Bad Blogs II,
