Top Tunes

1. “Cemetery Row” –

The Minus 5

The Minus 5

A bit of alt-country complete with introspective lyrics, as sung by the Decemberists’ Colin Meloy.

2. “Funny Little Frog” –

Belle & Sebastian

The Life Pursuit

A bit of indie-pop magic that is sure to wow as B&S sparkles on their latest LP.

3. “When the Sun Goes Down”-

Arctic Monkeys

Whatever People Say I Am

That’s What I Am Not

A vibrant piece of alt-rock meets swagger punk, there are only three words that define this band: NEXT BIG THING!

4. “Cash Machine” – Hard-Fi

Cash Machine (EP)

Equal parts brash rock and Scottish style pop rock, Hard-Fi are yet another young group that you’re going to need to know.

5. “Old Enough” – Ian Love

Ian Love

The former Rival Schools member attests that sometimes the simple things are the best as he serves up his subtle acoustic style pop.
