    Amadou and Mariam - Sabali

    Hit me hard when I heard it first.

    Produced by Damon Albarn. No actual video yet but here's the song anyway.

    We should use clips from the Youtube machine

    Loving Chromeo at the moment, Bonafied Lovin' is just the catchiest choon in a while for me :D

    EDIT - why won't my clips ever work?!

    Why was this moved? I started it so it would give people into Alternative and Indie a quick reference point for new material.

    Can someone move it back? Please?

    Ok, first and foremost, Merry Christmas guys. Hope this finds you well and that you're all in good places and having good times.

    Secondly, this is a shameless bump to bring this bitch back to the first page, but also to reiterate that this thread is for Alternative & Indie only and, if you wanna smather your genitalia in electronic samples or dance vinyl, please use the relevant WC.

    We REALLY need to keep this A&I if this thread is gonna be allowed to survive.

    So, shake the recent recesses of your minds and share the best of your yests so that everyone here can benefit from your latest discoveries and sometime return the favour.

    If it works, well, it could really, really work.

    /waits patiently with whip for opportunity to, well, whip..

    these guys will spread all kinds of awesome in 2009.

    track: Kid Gloves.

    they are a side project of two of my favourite bands Biffy Clyro and Sucioperro

    Devotchka - How it ends

    Known to some of you from the Gears of War 2 ad, and by others as being on the Little Miss Sunshine soundtrack.

    Their other stuff is totally different, but worth a listen to too. Gypsy/rock kind of sound.
