The Independent Culture




Following collaborations with Elton John, Beck and Cee Lo Green, Inc have adopted a soulful, piano-led sound.

Computer Magic

The End of Time (Deptford Goth Remix)

A fizzing bassline and Balearic acoustic guitar riff drive this unorthodox, vocal-heavy synth-pop track.


Up Up Up

Givers take the Paul Simon-inspired Afrobeat sound to good use and mix it with chirpy ska and shared boy-girl vocals.

Benjamin Francis Leftwich

Box of Stones

Tender and ultra melancholic, Leftwich's voice is a broken croon accompanied by finger-picked folk guitar.

Hungry Kids of Hungary


Another ultra-short song, although "Wristwatch" features the kind of knowing, preppy sophistication that would make IceAge squirm.


Count Me In

Hardcore Danish punk. This Sexdrome cover lasts less than 90 seconds and is a brutal representation of teen angst.

Cut Copy

Blink and You'll Miss a Revolution (Toro Y Moi Remix)

A smart, disco-inflected remix of the Australian electro-pop band's recent single.

Hey Sholay

In Bed with Old Nick

How Foals might sound if they ditched the pretentious math-rock and made a pop record. Smart, off-kilter and interesting.
