FEN FIVE – JULY 2010 //

07.26.10
byFEN

This month’s FEN FIVE has been in the works all month looong. But, we have to say, it was definitely worth the wait and there’s plenty here to listen to as we move to August. Leading us off is the energetic band Passion Pit with “The Reeling.” You can partly thank keyboard/synth player Ayad Al-Adhamy for this catchy tune you might find yourself singing along to. Next up, Mashrou’ Leila, who were recently featured on NPR Music, with “Raksit Leila.” Their amazing range and transitions make us glad their one-night collaboration has turned into a full-fledged project. Followed by Keane featuring one of FEN’s favorite artists, K’naan on “Stop for a Minute.” You’ll definitely want to give that track more than a minute, as well as Omar Offendum’s “Destiny.” If you haven’t checked that video out and downloaded the track yet, do it here >>

Finally, we leave you with what we think might be a weaker pick from Amr Diab. Mr. Pop Arabia himself, gives us his new track for summer “Aslaha Betefre’.” We’re tempted to call it a throwback ’cause is it just us, or did Amr already put this track out? [insert ironic head scratch here] Like, last summer? And the summer before that? Aaand the summer before that? Let us know what YOU think. Til next month, press play and leave us a comment…
