Here's this week's show!

1. Tanya Morgan - I heard about them on the Indiefeed hiphop podcast. I hope they don't mind me playing this track! (the podcast, I mean!) They play some of the very best indie hip hop around and Tanya Morgan is one! I love this song! Check them out!

Say You Want It All
2. Amel Larrieux - She's become a favorite R&B artists of mine. Wonderful voice as always. Too bad they don't play her music on terrestrial radio. At least, not in my area! There are so many deserving artists that SHOULD be played who aren't. Too bad! Check her out!

Shut The Sun Out
3. Donna Lewis -
She's always had a great voice. I've always thought of her as a cross between Sarah Mclauchlin and Bjork. Her new album is really good. Check out her music and projects at the Donna Lewis website.

Wasp In The Lotus
4. The Dandy Warhols -
Again, another song from their upcoming album. Sounds cool to me. The entire album is good, though.

Kimberly Smiles
5. Utah Carol -
I first heard this band while listening to the Filmspotting podcast. Nice little song with that laidback feel. I love that! Check them out!

Better Days Will Come
6. Tahiti 80 -
I don't remember if I've ever played this song and if not I'm surprised that I haven't. It's one of my all time favorites. Check them out !
