No luggage, passport or layovers; all you need is your radio signal every Saturday night. 94.3 The X invites Northern Colorado to travel abroad with us, and meet the bands who rock underground pubs, the 'land down under' and everywhere in between.

Last month, Passport Approved introduced us to Banners, who you can now hear regularly on The X. I've picked out my top five international picks (+ one bonus American) from last weekend's edition of Passport Approved.


  • Circa Waves - My Love (UK)

    Such a breezy SoCal hit (from the UK) to get us California dreaming on these gray winter days.

  • The Bongo Club - All She Said (Sweden)

    Are you dancing in your underwear and singing into a hairbrush yet?

  • Mi Amigo - What I Want (UK)

    Does it sound like Neon Indian? Kind of.

    Do I dig it anyway? You bet.

  • Rat Boy - Sign On (UK)

  • Buffalo Sunn - Told You So (Ireland)

    It's dreamy. That is all.

  • Bitter's Kiss - No One Will (North America)

    That break up song that you want to learn on the ukulele so you have something to do besides eat ice cream and cry.
