We round out 2009 with the Best of OuterSound. It is a compilation of some (but not all) of the best indie music that has been delivered to the Froglix Faithful via our monthly OuterSound podcast and/or our global broadcast on Froglix Radio. This first year-end edition could easily have been 2-3 times as long as it was very difficult to pick the songs for this episode. We have, however settled on a final “Best of” list and it is, in order of appearance:
Rude City Riot (Vancouver, Canada), The Kut (UK), IM Munroe (Toronto, Canada), Treading Lemmings (Washington, DC), Lux Leopard (Sochi, Russia), Everything Zen (Cleveland, OH), Mars Accelerator (Seattle, WA), Glue Factory (Long Beach, CA), Part One Tribe (Long Beach, CA), Cellarscape (UK), Artsy Pop (Paris, France), Black Knight (Australia), Nadine Loren (Los Angeles, CA) and Sharif (Los Angeles, CA).
Has it been a month already? Apparently, it has! Time once again, boys and girls, for a new edition of Froglix Radio’s OuterSound Indie Music Podcast. This month we decided to forgo any type of quasi ghoulish marketing theme and stick with what we love…New Indie. True Indie.
In this episode you will hear new music from:
I M Munroe | Toronto, Canada
Genre: alternative | indie-pop
Along the sprawling shores of the Black Sea, with the snow capped Caucausus Mountains as a majestic backdrop, lies the resort town of Sochi, Russia, which, in addition to being selected to host the 2014 Olympic games, is also home to our latest addition to the global broadcast. We are delighted to welcome Lux Leopard to the fold and happier still to be sharing tracks from their 2009 demo CD with the Froglix faithful around the world. Karina Yunusova (Vox), Eugene Kuznetsov (Guitars), Alsan Gedgafov (Bass) and David Ogan’yan (Drums) skillfully pool their collective talents to forge an energetic cadence draped in sparkling melodies that lift the spirit. Fans of Bjork, the Sundays, Frou Frou and the like will totally dig this band and, while Lux Leopard is just the 2nd band from the Russian Federation to join the rotation (Static Free being the other), we sincerely hope this is the beginning of a trend. The indie music coming out of Mother Russia these days is excellent and more than holds its own against the rest of the world…Lux Leopard is no exception. Enjoy!
