The Knife – The brother/sister electro-punk duo has seen quite a year, and ends 2006 with a special Christmas MP3 of their track ‘Reindeer,’ remixed to include a little holiday flair.

Dabrye – Ann Arbor’s Tadd Mullinix awakened the dark, gritty underbelly of hip-hop this year with his Ghostly International album Two/Three.

Bodycode – Though Alan Abrahams is known by other aliases, this year saw him warm to the more dancefloor-oriented aspects of music for his first EP under this moniker.

Beach House – Influenced by all things atmospheric, Alex Scally and Victoria Legrand present a world of slide guitars, reverb, harmony, and ethereal melodies.

Tortoise – Though the name of their boxed set, A Lazarus Taxon, is the paleontological term for a species that disappears, then reappears, 2006 proved these guys are no fossils.
