The Whitest Boy Alive - Dreams (2006)

This album accomplishes the feat of being dancy in this day and age without being overly bassy, annoyingly bubblegum or saturated with Auto-Tune. In fact, this album contains no programmed elements at all. Erlend Øye (you might know him from Kings of Convenience or from lending his vocals to Röyksopp's car insurance-friendly "Remind Me") spearheads this minimalist indie pop wonder and shows no signs of slowing down. The record's opener, "Burning" will have you dancing for weeks.

For fans of: Phoenix, Kings of Convenience, The Maccabees
