Duluth MN artist Rivulets is the first singer/songwriter to stop me in my tracks in 2011. Its the same feel i got from hearing The Tallest Man On Earth for the first time even though there sounds are not simular. Highly reconmended.

Buffalo band Son of the Sun released a new ep last month "almost not there". At times Son of the Sun sound like New Zealand band The Phoenix Foundation ( ironically there last album was called buffalo ) especially the track 10,000 maybe thats why it was the first song to grab me.
Almost not there has got that lazy sunday afternoon rock vibe too it which is a good thing. Defiantly a good listen and one of those albums that has yet too reveal all its secrets.

No i don't understand Portuguese but i understand good music. Brazilian band Le almeida have a sound that is not too dissimilar to Eric's Trip if you loved 90's indie rock the first time you can't go wrong here.

2 Sonic Youth - Superstar ( The Carpenters )

By the way of New Zealand, The mint chicks, portland and now Fat possum, Unknown Mortal Orchestra have garnered some impressive buzz of late is it warranted maybe. I'm a little perplexed as to why Mint Chicks never got this amount of buzz in the states but good for Ruban Nielson.
