Recent­ly Cold­play’s X&Y album dropped. Its just weird see­ing and hear­ing more about this music genre they call “Indie”. So yah, so far I can only dis­tin­guish this style of music if the band is from the UK. Its pro­l­ly because I only know two bands that for sure are cat­e­go­rized in this genre, Cold­play and Kasabi­an.

Speak­ing of Kasabi­an—these blokes rock rat-ass! Straight from the first track (club foot, my fav) of their self-enti­tled album, they set a great momen­tum that just takes you by sur­prise; and make you not want to get off of it. But hey, you dont have to take my word for it. I seri­ous­ly rec­om­mend cop­ping their album.

Oh yah, also sup­port the orga­ni­za­tion their help­ing out… makepovertyhistory.org. Not to men­tion, be a part of the Move­ment!

Update: Live Per­for­mance at KEXP 90.3FM, 9/9/05
Lis­ten here.

Eng­lish indie band Kasabi­an has made a splash in the inter­na­tion­al press with a bold mix of raw gui­tar sound, clas­sic rock pro­gres­sions, catchy vocal lines and elec­tron­ic beats. This stripped-down acoustic set show­cas­es their pop-friend­ly vocal har­monies and their unpol­ished yet strong melodies, sung from the heart. ~M. Myers, KEXP
