#12: Seni Görmem Imkansız 

Who are they?

A duo from Turkey. 

Why I like it
The rhythm is very driven and hypnotic (I love it when the drums are loud in the mix) and I enjoy the vocals. 

Staying Power

They don’t seem to be active anymore, but one of the two members, Gaye Su Akyol has an interesting solo project.

#9: Vaadat Charigim

Who are they?
A shoegaze trio from Israel. Their latest album came out last year and is called Sinking as a Stone.
Offical Website

Why I like it
Shoegaze is a genre I enjoy quite a bit, so obviously I like this take on it too. It’s very summery and probably cool to see live.
Their lyrics are in Hebrew, but some of them are explained here by their singer/guitarist.

Staying Power
I’ll probably listen to their latest album.

Who are they?
An Australian / English band from London. They release their music on Fortuna Pop and Slumberland.

Why I like it
First band I have heard the name of before but never got around to checking out.
I’ve got a thing for cute jinglyjangly indiepop that is very catchy. Always have and probably always will.

Staying Power
We’ll see!

#3: Molina y los Còsmicos

Who are they?
A indie/folk band from Uruguay with 5 members. At this point they have released 2 albums. Their latest is called El Folk de la Frontera.
Offical Website

Why I like it
Indiefolk has for a long time been my favourite genre. Both the vocalist voices are very nice. It’s nothing “new” or innovative but quite beautiful.

Staying Power
Possibly.
