Leaves - We Are ShadowsLeaves is an Icelandic band that reminds me a little bit of The Verve, Coldplay and sometimes a little bit of Sigur Rós. The album is charming, like a movie soundtrack that could brings you up and down in many twists and turns.
Vienna Teng - Inland TerritoryAs a singer, songwriter and pianist, Vienna Teng offers more than her deserved titles. The Taiwan-born American artist self-described her music as 'folk-pop’ or ‘alternative pop,' you also can't overlook the beautifully composed piano and the intricate lyrics. Inland Territory is a relaxing and interesting album, just listen to one of her songs and you'll understand her immense talent as a singer and musician.
Telekinesis! - Telekinesis!The Seattle based Telekinesis! is kind of quirky and cute, the songs on the debut self-titled album are contagious! The catchy pop songs kept me intrigued for more, this could be the best summer tune of 2009.
