If you are going mad at the endlessly looping playlist of the same 20 tracks, playing on every single radio station all day-long, all week-long, you are bound to be hating songs that you once used to hum to and have on maximum volume on your ipod. Even worse than the repetitiveness of this musical ordeal, you must have now reached the point where these unimaginative stations have created in you an acute allergy towards anything dance or hip-hop.
SUF has always been a fan of alternative and rock music and has picked out a short compilation of must-have albums and singles that you should at least give a good chance to grow on you: these tracks are best enjoyed under Skullcandy or Bose stereo headphones or the cool Beats by Dr.Dre’s.

1- Top album must-have: Lenny Kravitz’s Black and White America is high on our list. Mixing soul, funk and rock, Lenny mesmerizes us with tracks like Everything, In the Black, I Can’t Be Without You and Black & White America. A truly great album with modern sounds.
2- The long-awaited Red Hot Chili Peppers’s I’m With You album, counts anthem-quality tracks like Monarchy Of Roses and Factory Of Faith. While Ethiopia, Did I Let You Know and The Adventures of Raindance Maggie add highly-catchy and rythmical sounds to the album.
3- Delilah’s Go is a smooth and bass-sound take on Chaka Khan’s Ain’t Nobody, a must-have!
4- Lana Del Rey has got to be the coolest and best-looking singer -songwriter around these days, with a sound reminiscent of Chris Isaak, Video Games had over 6 million hits on YouTube and propelled Del Rey into the fame stratosphere, this track will go down in the annals of music history.
5- Del Rey’s Blue Jeans is just as mesmerising, with SUF having a serious style crush on Lana’s heavily accessorised white jumper and gold chains.
6- Born to die is the latest track from Lana’s debut album , which got shelved for 2 years and is now finally coming out!
7- Gotye’s Somebody that I Used to Know is a sound mirror of a young Sting when he used to be part of the Police, a smooth and catchy song that is becoming a huge phenomenon. Check out this amazing cover by Walk Off The Earth! Just brilliant, all one one guitar!
