And to start taking all the dust off, I am presenting to you guys this band that I just came randomly across - Civil Twilight. They are originally from Cape Town, South Africa, but their sound doesn't quite bring much of their african roots from what I could tell.
I found them on the weekly AOL Listening Party... I was very very surprise for their great sound and talent! Let's not make comparisons for now, just listen and take your own conclusions.
