FIQL Pick The Art Of Indie - December 2007
[Updated on January 8, 2008] Here are some songs that stood out in November and December. 80's and disco sounds throughout, with some indie rock mixed in.  1. Nantes : Indie, polka, or mariachi? Yes! Beirut is a strange attraction, but I keep coming back for more. 2. Sunrise: Tribal music? Dance? Rock? Yes! I can't stop listening to this song at max volume. 3.

[Updated on January 8, 2008] Here are some songs that stood out in November and December. 80's and disco sounds throughout, with some indie rock mixed in.
1. Nantes : Indie, polka, or mariachi? Yes! Beirut is a strange attraction, but I keep coming back for more.
2. Sunrise: Tribal music? Dance? Rock? Yes! I can't stop listening to this song at max volume.
3. Two Kinds: The melody is an outtake from The Cure's Disintegration. A bit formulaic, but nice nonetheless.
4. When You Go Out: "I Love You But I've Chosen Darkness" is now my all time favorite band name. Sorry Flaming Lips. The music has the requisite solid beat with some nice 80's guitar.
5. Aren't We All Found Out: Maritime is a like a warm blanket. Layered guitars, smooth melodies and a calming voice. Curl up and enjoy.
6. 15 Minutes: And now for something completely different. Greenskeepers has the deep monotone voice that is oh so poplular right now. The Editors, The National, and Schooner (see below) quickly come to mind. A fun 80's bass and synthesizers.
7. Discotech: If you're going to have a disco sound, why not just name the song Discotech. Reminds everyone of why disco and 80's music is back. A fun beat.
8. Gold: You come for the 80's beat, you stay for Suzie Kerstgens' silky smooth vocals in German.
9. Mother Mary Blues: Back to some more classic indie alternative. A somewhat trendy style of yelling while singing and keeping the beat with your guitar.
10. Take Me To The Riot: Simple hook and fun. I can't quit this song for some reason.
11. Shadowplay: It would be too easy to get tired of The Killers, but they are still leading the 80's revival and this song is once again a nice balance of 80's synths, guitars and addictive beats. The Killers are dead, long live The Killers.
12. Carrboro: Reid Johnson's smooth, deep voice is de rigeur in indie right now. This underrated band from Carrboro, N.C. is a lot of fun. In case you're wondering, Carrboro is just outside Chapel Hill, so these are not country boys by any means. [-]

The Killers' Shadow play cover is pretty cool, but as with all Joy Division covers, it doesnt come close to the original in my eyes.
