1. Amorf Ordogok – Betyar A Holdon
Why I like this song: Amorf Ordogok is a hungarian folk/gypsy band that provides a MUCH needed break from English music. The syncopation is addictive.
2. The Broken West – Perfect Games
Why I like this song: This song really reminds me of Matt Pond PA and I couldn’t quite place it at first since I blogged about Matt Pond PA August 4, 2006 on my old blog. I like it because it’s upbeat indie pop/rock.
3. Ruby Isle – Now We Can See
Why I like this song: Now We Can See starts out like you’re coming out of a bad daze, but it flows into some sort of weird indie pop flow with hiccups along the way.
4. School of Seven Bells – Connjur
Why I like this song: Connjur is another indie electronic song that has a dreamy female voice lulling you into a trance. How can you go wrong with Postal Service like percussion?
5. Thao With the Get Down, Stay Down – Fear and Convenience
Why I like this song: Fear and Convenience is Indie pop with hand claps and a brass instrument. Thao with the Get Down, Stay Down is like accidentally seeing a local band in a bar and realizing that they’re actually good.
6. The Asteroids Galaxy Tour – The Sun Aint Shining No More
Why I like this song: It brings the 1960s to 2008 with a touch of B52s. (Side note: The B52s played at my college graduation in a drizzle. Pretty cool.)
7. The Very Most – Sod Off
Why I like this song: More indie rock/pop from one man band Jeremy Jensen. Of course he got help from his friends. Did I mention that I’m an indie addict?
