Akcent – “That’s My Name” – (2009)

Here’s something you probably haven’t heard. Hell, here’s a genre you probably haven’t heard – Romanian dance-pop. Akcent is a group of three guys from Bucharest, Romania who have been performing Romania’s signature electro-pop sound since 1999. It has that accordion-gypsy feel to it. Sure, it’s otherwise just bubble-gum pop music with crap lyrics. But the feel of the music is what it’s all about – closing your eyes and hearing those Mediterranean sounds that put you in a very European mood. It’s one of my favorite things and the reason I listen to music like this.
