Take LCD Soundsystem, add Arcade Fire, the Muscles and perhaps some Justice (but more alternative) and you come close to revealing MGMT's music. Recently on David Letterman, MGMT are starting to create a hipster stir. The alternative drive of electric guitars, coupled with deep bass beats, makes MGMT an alternative, indie- dance synthesis.

Laura Marling- (http://www.myspace.com/lauramarling)
The music of Laura Marling brings forth a power that is inherent in her vocal talents, making her music both moving and lucid. Marling's song writing involves the traditional romanticisms of love and loss, but what makes her music so interestingly encapsulating, is that her lyrics do not seemed forced. Why is that so interesting, well maybe because she is only 17-years-old. Displaying musical maturity well beyond her years, one can only imagine what her music will become. Comparisons can be made to Lily Allen, Feist, and Rilo Kiley, but Marling has a bit more folk tradition in her music style. Citing influences such as Neil Young, Bob Dylan and Joni Mitchell, Marling's music is well educated and can only become better with time. Marling has recently been releasing EP's and singles, but hopefully 2008 will produce a full-length release.
