Many years ago I fell in love with Coldplay, and I'm not ashamed to say it. Earlier this year I discovered Bell X1. Now I've been drawn into the small field of fans supporting the band Popcult -- and this is a group of fans I guarantee you will be growing heavily over the next few years. Like a fusion of Bell X1 and Coldplay, Popcult utilizes sweeping vocals and harmonious guitar, piano and synthesizers to create a soothing sound that rests in one's ears with a gentle ambivalence.
Their self titled EP is exceptional, and it hasn't gotten the recognition it deserves. Fun fact: Their EP is available through Noisetrade.com which means you can download it for free, and then "Tip" the artist anywhere from $1 to $100 after your download -- if you choose to be so kind. Just click HERE for the link to the download of the entire EP.
