3 The Notwist - The Devil, You + Me
Recommended Tracks: The Good Lies, Where in This World, Gloomy Planets
I first heard of the Notwist while I was doing pizza delivery as a night job in Seattle. They are a German band, and I never actually heard the radio announcer play them. He would say things like, "The new Notwist record is really great. I've been spinning it a lot lately. Now, here's a track from the new Death Cab album…" They are really good, easy-on-the-ears indie rock. It's like music you would put while you look out the window at gently falling rain. Their song "Good Lies" is very catchy. Here's the video:
