1. Crystalised - The xx
This London based teenage quartet just released their debut album, and it blew me away. Crystalised is one of my favorite songs from the album, and it is my morning anthem. The soothing voice of Romy Madley Croft and Oliver Sim (who also play lead guitar and bass guitar respectively) really gives me chills every time i hear this song. Definitely worth to hear.
2. Passion Pit - The Reeling
The mood charger! The energetic sounds really make you want to dance and jump. Listen to this song with the max volume and you can feel that you are in an atmosphere full of energy. Michael Angelakos and co really done this song perfectly, with a VMA nomination in hand for the music video, Passion Pit definitely will stay in the music industry.
3. Malino - The Trees and The Wild
Time for some cool local music! Yes this cool new indie band is very very very worth to hear. With an accoustic sound just like Kings of Convenience, TTATW gives you the most calming songs that you will ever hear from and Indonesian band. This newcomer is definitely the promosing new talent in Indonesian indie music. Their debut album 'Rasuk' will literally 'merasuki' your soul because i can't stop listening to the whole album for a month! Visit their Myspace to know more and listen to their song
4. Sweet Disposition - The Temper Trap
This song is taken from the soundtrack of 500 Days Of Summer, it features in the promo (the phot collage video) and i'm hooked by it since the first time i heard the song. The Temper Trap is also a new band and they just released their debut titled "Conditions". This song have a really great sound, with it's blisfull sound and light lyrics to remember Sweet Disposotion will get a special position in your mind.
5. Standing In The Way Of Control-The Gossip
Well this is actually an old song from 2007 ( i think) it was the anthem of Skins, the famous british television show that i've been watching this past few weeks. Poweful vocal by Beth Ditto makes this song become a poweful foot stomping punk. Perfect song to accompany you in your Saturday Night. The Gossip who is becoming more and more famous by now should put this song if they will make a greatest hits someday. I actually prefer this than the new song 'Heavy Cross', this one have more attitude to it and more powerful sound to stomp your feet and jump around like maniac.
