5. Margot and the Nuclear So and So's
Indianapolis band on the rise to the national scene. Strings, Cuomo-esque croons, cookie sheet percussion and just a pinch of whiskey and cigarettes makes some of the most chilled refreshing music the midwest has to offer today.
4. Wolf Parade
Having been discovered by Isaac Brook, lead singer of Modest Mouse, these captivating Canadians came out to the world with lots of hype. But don't believe any of it. Just sit back, listen, and be impressed by their powerful debut record.
3. Clap Your Hands Say Yeah!
The well-loved new family puppy of indie rock. Other members of the family don't like the pet because it is so cute and does that adorable leg kick/tongue loll when you rub its belly. Fresh new and fun sound, a soft fun rock that will catch a frisbee in its mouth.
Sri-Lankan War refugee in the UK and she wont let you forget it! This lovely lady is bringing beats, rhymes and smooth vocals to the US that are bumping enough to get everyone on the dancefloor. Fuck Madonna, the real disco queen in the British Isles is MIA.
1. Bloc Party
Crest of the UK wave of Orange Juice/ Gang of Four throwback dance groups. Not revolutionary at all, but a fun pulse raising listen. Initially released to the UK in 2004, this gem didn't grace shelves in the U.S. until 2005.
