Paradise - Future Perfect

The Hunter - Future Perfect
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4d2CNxMfoOo

I'm literally obsessed with this band right now and have been since last year I've got both their albums. Worth checking out! Certainly better than most chart music at the moment.

Nice beefy synth sound on The Hunter and a good tune for once. I also like the Lisbeth Salander (Noomi Rapace) look in the video. More of an 80s synth sound and more urgency than most chart music.

I wasn't so fussed on 'Paradise' but going to listen to the album.

They are good. In fact they're one of my favourite bands. Their current album is called Escape and that one came out last year. Their first album is called Dirty Little Secrets and it came out in 2010. DLS is harder to find than Escape as they don't sell it any more so you might have to search some other *ahem* sites to find it.

Looking at the most played songs in my library, the top 3 are fairly obscure.

Anggun - Valparaiso
A Sunny Day in Glasgow - Shy
a-ha - Summer Moved On


The a-ha song is by far the most known, but I think it's more known outside of english-speaking countries.

Let's go Dutch

Do - Daughters
Do - Only Girl in the World - Slow acoustic version

She has the best female voice you have never heard of.

Marco Borsato - De Waarheid
Marco Borsato - Because we Believe

This guy is the biggest selling artist in Dutch history, outselling both the Beatles and Elvis in Holland.

Put them both together and you get this number 1 song:

Do & Marco - Voorbij

Yasiin Bey (aka Mos Def) feat. Jay Electronica & Lucy Liu - They Die By Dawn

Sort of hip-hop/Ennio Morricone fusion type-thing. It's hard to explain, but it's great!

Bear with the long intro, it's worth it.

I actually remember that - Scottish band I think, bit of the U2s about them. Brilliant song, epic rock named after a 1940s British Sci-fi movie.

the whole album Roshambo is good, this is the only video I could find though.
(plenty of rough live footage on youtube as well though.)
