BEIRUT "Postcards From Italy" Download MP3
From the album Gulag Orchestra Ba Da Bing (BING048) CD
Orchestrated pop for fans of Sufjan Stevens, Calexico, The Magnetic Fields and Neutral Milk Hotel, not to mention the Boban Markovic Orchestra. Guests include Jeremy Barnes (Neutral Milk Hotel, A Hawk and a Hacksaw) and Heather Trost (A Hawk and a Hacksaw)

LISA GERMANO "In The Maybe World" Download MP3
From the album In The Maybe World Young God Records (YGR 32) CD
New album from former 4AD recording artist and session player's follow-up to 2003's acclaimed Lullaby For Liquid Pig. For fans of PJ Harvey, Marianne Faithful, Cat Power and Bjork. In The Maybe World features some of Germano's best work to date. Typically, her self-produced arrangements are uniquely inventive, her lyrics cut right to the core, and her voice carries gently into a world where distinctions between beauty, loss, love and pain tend to blur.

THE MEMORY BAND "Want To Know You" Download MP3
from the album Apron Strings Dicristina (Step 08) CD
"The songs mix arrangements and bastardizations of traditional pieces-- a summery take on the trad "Blackwaterside" as beloved of Anne Briggs and Burt Jansch; a genuinely moving take on Irish folk gem "Green Grows The Laurel"-- with original compositions and unlikely cover versions (Carly Simon's "Why" and Ronnie Lane's "The Poacher"), to make an album both modern and timeless, completely unconstrained by most people's ideas of "folk music."

TWO DOLLAR GUITAR "The Wild Night" Download MP3
From the album The Wear And Tear Of Fear: A Lover's Discourse on Smells Like Records (SLR 051) CD
Ten new songs from Hoboken guitarist and songwriter Tim Foljahn. Having collaborated with artists like Steve Shelley (Sonic Youth), Christina Rosenvinge and Dave Motamed (Cell) on previous releases, The Wear And Tear Of Fear is almost entirely a solo affair, closer in spirit to his original, mid-'90s recordings for Smells Like Records. The album features a pleasing mix of guitars, singing and electronics, including two instrumental tracks, recorded by Foljahn at his home and mixed with Fred Smith (Television).
