A lot of songs I would normally play were already on my workout podcast but here are mine, what are yours?

Returning back to our indie roots, this week we’re looking for your Top Five Alternative Voices. By this I mean singers who sound unique and different in a good way. In a world of X-factors and Pop Idols, this week we’re looking for the people who can’t sing, at least not in a conventional sense, yet they deliver more emotion and identity to music than your average Backstreet Boy.

Here are My Top Five, what are yours?

5. Neutral Milk Hotel

4. EDIT Wolf Parade

3. The National

2. Tom Waits

1. Bright Eyes

It can be something soothing and relaxing or something you play at a guitar house parties or just any old acoustic song!

4. Thirteen, Wilco (Big Star)

2. Sunday, Bloc Party
