|East India Youth|
There are exceptions of course. I am forced, sometimes not unwillingly, to listen to my girls' favourites (and I confess to being quite partial to a bit of Taylor Swift). And once in a while something a little more challenging piques my interest. Currently it's William Doyle, aka East India Youth. His second album, Culture of Volume, released a few months ago is partly vocal pop, partly instrumental electronica and totally accessible. I'd also recommend you watch a 28-minute video of a live in the studio session he did for KEXP Radio in Seattle. Unfashionably coiffed and suited (he looks like a bank clerk), he sings, plays keyboards and guitar, twiddles knobs and percusses, sometimes simultaneously and all of it on his own.
