Last week, Paste Magazine published the annual 'Best of What's Next' issue, highlighting favorite up-and-comers in music, film, books and more. But Best of What's Next isn't a title assigned just once a year -- in every weekly issue of Paste, a new artist claims the honor. For example, on this Best of What's Next sampler you'll find tracks from Lucius, Royal Bangs and Wowser Bowser, all featured in the BOWN issue, but also a track from Tarantula Waltz, who nabbed the spot in the international issue. From Alabama up-and-comers St. Paul & the Broken Bones to singer-songwriter Christopher Paul Stelling, this nine-track compilation is only a taste of the artists featured weekly in the hopes that readers will find their next favorite band. Check out all of the Best of What's Next artists over at PASTE.COM.
