mY Indie Soul # 19
Indie Electronic Electro Experimental Rock Punk

Darkel - Be my Friend
The name "Darkel" may sound cooler than "Dunckel," but there is little darkness of note in the first solo album from Jean Benoit Dunckel (whose surname means "dark" in German), half of the French electronic duo Air. Since Air first arose during the electronic heyday that was 1998 with its classic Moon Safari, the group has continued to evolve, but it's never been able to re-create the distinctness or listenability of that album. Perhaps, then, Dunckel went solo to return to those sounds he may not have spent enough time with. More pop-oriented than Air's previous two studio albums (2001's 10,000Hz Legend and 2004's Talkie Walkie), Darkel's self-titled debut comes closest to achieving the tasteful kitsch of Air's debut.

white williams - New Violence
Nurtured in the arson-prone fatalism of Cleveland's DIY scene, 23-year-old Joe Williams, noise-rock dilettante and White Williams' mastermind, made a name for himself twice touring with Gregg Gillis (Girl Talk), Andrew Strasser, Frank Musarra (Hearts of Darknesses) and Luke Venezia (Drop the Lime). Together, through countless venues of ill-repute, they forced their cartooned audio effluvia in the ears of hapless art-students, transients and skin-heads. Inevitably, Joe was saved by pop music.

Lcd Soundsystem - Watch The Tapes
LCD Soundsystem is the musical project of producer James Murphy, co-founder of dance-punk label DFA Records. The music of LCD Soundsystem is a mix of dance music and punk, along with elements of disco and other styles.

Passions - Emergency
Passions is a Mathhead alias. Mathhead is a part of the Trouble & Bass crew out of NYC along side Drop The Lime a.k.a. Curses!. ‘Emergency’ is a fat electro track featuring Star Eyes on the vocal & of course, doesn’t skimp on the bass. And Homecoming is The Teenagers powerhouse track that has been remixed by many & loved by all.

U.N.K.L.E. - Morning Race
Part of Unkle’s success lies is their ability to coerce music’s top vocalists into singing; this and their knack of matching the ‘right’ voice with the most suitable instrumentals is central to their music hallmark – tracks that sound individual but which fall under the distinctive Unkle umbrella. War Stories, a genre-hopping feast, follows this mould. Some may argue this signals a drying up of ideas on Unkle’s part or an over reliance on a failsafe formula – not so; album number three is diverse and engrossing.
The signature fusing of trip-hop beats with rock energy is here in abundance. “Mayday” with its pilfering of the bouncing prog rock riff in Kasabian’s “Empire” features garage rock group the Duke Spirit. Ian Astbury of the Cult features on “Burn My Shadow” with its similarity to the ear-drilling drumming of Pendulum’s “Voodoo People” remix; Astbury reappears on “When Things Explode” which uses the same sparse drumming as Radiohead’s “Climbing Up The Walls”.
