Liyana Fizi‘s album launch showcase was held in the Bentley Music Auditorium on the 11th of September. A wear-stripes-theme fits the “Between the Lines” album launch perfectly!

Before the showcase, the audience was treated to supporting acts. We first saw Narmi on stage belting out soothing songs accompanied by samba-like drums. Tenderfist was up next performing three to 220-802 four songs (interesting music arrangement), I never kept track because of one reason: the digital percussionist. He looked like he was having the time of his life, forgetting everything except him and his music, resulting to me having the time of my life observing his expressions! I checked them out on Facebook http://www.facebook.com/tenderfist?sk=info and they have bizarre names for their CompTIA 220-802 band members. Anyway I found out Napoleon Polarbear is the name of the digital percussionist. Funny!

The White Shoes & The Couples Company, celebrated as one of the “best indie pop band to call Jakarta home” by Allmusic.com will play alongside local band, Khottal and French band Saycet to transport the audience into a different dimension of poetic and mesmerizing soundscapes and melodies.

Formed in 2002, The White Shoes & The Couples company blends 1960’s Burt Bacharach-inspired melodies with winsome indie pop to create a truly unique sound that bring us back to the 1970’s or even to the 1930’s, with charming, distinct melodies and orchestration. Singing in both English and Indonesian, they have been named “one of the Top 25 bands on MySpace” by Rolling Stone, featured in Times Magazine and praised by Pitchfork. http://www.myspace.com/whiteshoesandthecouplescompany
