3. Little Earthquake - Honest

4. Emma Louise - Talk Baby Talk

5. Fitz and The Tantrums - HandClap

6. Kaleo - I Can't Go On Without You (NEW)

Jo's Pick of the Week: Yeah, so, pretty impressed that probably every Icelandic person in the world knows who this band is and is probably totally in love with them, but pretty embarrassed that I hadn’t discovered them before I saw their name on the line-up for Bluesfest this year, which I now wish I’d attended, for this band alone. The story of their rise to fame in their home country of Iceland is kind of cute and impressive, but the best thing about them has nothing to do with their homeland but more to do with the meaning of their name, Kaleo, which apparently means ‘the sound’ in Hawaiian. Their sound? Some of the best bluesy-indie-rock-ey-popp-ey-blues I’ve heard in a long, long time – the type of sounds that defy all notions of sitting still, that defy all notions of genre and defy all thoughts of who is going to make my list of faves for this year, because if there were a finite amount of things I were allowed to like, then Kaleo have just pushed someone off the end of that list. This song; ‘I Can’t Go On Without You’ is just perfection and everything you want from your new favourite song, but a quick google tells me I’ve got a lot of listening to do if I’m to catch up with something Iceland (and the rest of the world, it seems) has known for about four years already. Those Iceland-ians? They’re very cool, aren’t they? Absolutely no pun intended. These ones are. (Jo Michelmore)
