#20 Bedouin Soundclash; Street Gospels
The closest to reggae I will ever get.
standout track: 04-trinco-dog.mp3
#19 Justice; Cross
Sounds life Daft Punk’s younger punk kid sister.
standout track: 06-phantom-pt-ii.mp3
#18 Enon; Grass Geysers…Carbon Clouds
Never a dull moment. The alternation of the voives totally does it for me.
standout track: 11-enon-labyrinth.mp3
#17 A Place to Bury Strangers; A Place to Bury Strangers
This stuff is really dark and scary. I imagine this is what “goth” kids listen to.
standout track: 06-breathe.mp3
#16 Kenna; Make Sure They See My Face
Angsty and electronicy.
Standout track: 10-better-wise-up.mp3
#15 Calla, Strength in Numbers
I am bad at explaining music. Their previous albums were super depressing, this is just as depressing but with more melody-driven stuff.
Standout track: 12-simone.mp3
#14 Editors; The End Has A Start
This is what Interpol SHOULD sound like.
Standout track: smokers-outside-the-hospital-doors.mp3
#13 The View; Hats Off to the Buskers
I definiately heard this in 2006, but it was officially released in the US this year. Again, the US has no taste and never really picked up on their awesomeness.
Standout track: 03-same-jeans.mp3
#12 The Raveonettes, Lust Lust Lust
Genius.I read a review somewhere that said this band is a perfect soundtrack to a David Lynch movie. Also, their imitation of the Jesus and Mary Chain is at times actually better than actual J&MC.
Standout track: 10-sad-transmisson.mp3
#11 The Comas; Spells
Sometimes I don’t understand why they are not as popular on the radio as Rihanna and the other stuff.
Standout track: 03-now-im-a-spider.mp3
Any predictions about what my top 10 are?
