Thus far, we've seen 1984 throwback duo La Roux at number five, tongue-in-cheek electro party band Empire of the Sun at number four, sassy UK songstress Florence and the Machine (my personal favorite) at number three, and dreary alt-rock trio White Lies at number two.
The number one artist to watch in 2009, according to BBC, is Little Boots. What I want to know is, who the fuck got paid to name this artist the most promising of 2009? Little fucking Boots? The name is as bad as the music.
