23 Maggio - Men in Route
From their demo album 'Ndemo!
'Ndemo! is a demo (now, really?? …ok, in Venetian dialect it means
"Let's go!"…Men in Route, Let's go…get it?) recorded in 2007. It
contains four songs, similar to each other but each with its own
sounded really good.
Sing Along - Virginia
Virginia Coalition is a band that has made its reputation with the
blazing energy of its live shows and ability to play almost any
style of music. Home This
sees the band moving in a new direction. They've
blended their diverse influences into a sound all their own with a
maturity and attention to detail that shines on every track.
Terrible thing - David Yazbek
(New York, NY)
Yazbek is a long-time cult favorite - a recording artist, vocalist
and pianist known for his thrilling live performances and
irreverent style. He is a two-time Tony Award Nominee, whose shows

record producer, and an Emmy-Award winning TV writer (for Late
Night with David Letterman).
Lift me up - Arianna Solare
Arianna Solare has created a timeless sound in her debut EP,
Book of Us
, that resonates
with the classic recordings of the 60"s and 70's yet is unique to
the contemporary music of today. Created in the City of Angels,
Arianna"s birthplace, Book of Us was recorded at Los Angeles' Blue
Forest Studios; featuring guitarist Angelo Vermuelen, drummer Chris
Steele and bass player Henrik Linde, as well as appearances by

The Cajun vibe is a bit of a surprise from Sweden but non-the-less
