((Annie)) Band Profile and Upcoming Chicago Concerts - Oh My Rockness

Wait a minute, I thought I listened to indie rock to get away from this kind of music? Somehow Norway's Annie and her definitely dance music has made the mythical "cross over" into indie rock land... I mean, the kids love it! Ok she's got some "cred" (whatever that means) having worked with Kings of Convenience and Sondre Lerche, as well as being championed by those taste-making kings, LCD Soundsystem.

But when I listen to her album, Anniemal, I just can't help but think that it could've been made by Madonna. And I dont like Madonna... but I also don't like to dance. And that is the crucial difference between people who like Annie and people who don't. Those ultra-hip kids boogie go crazy when her spiky beats begin to blare over the clubs sound system. But for the rest of us who are not as in tune with our body's natural rhythms, well, Annie just sounds like roller rink music.
