Weekend Tongue - Donora
Jake H. met Casey a few hours after she was born. He was
disappointed she was a girl and cried. Eighteen years later he got
over it, and they started a band with another Jake that played
bass. They became Donora and together they make melodic,
dance-worthy, garage rock.

You bought song for a dollar - The Go
Seriously funny music about non-serious, frequently geeky topics,
such as foot fetishes, boring people, and forbidden love on the
The Go Ahead And is a comedy pop band who masquerades as a group of
rascally young hooligans; however, all of the wacky musical hijinks
perpetrated by The Go Ahead And are actually the product of just
one person: Joel Abbott. Joel Abbott's story as a musician begins a
few months after he was born, when his parents took him to a stoned
fortuneteller at a hippie art fair in Boulder, Colorado, and the
fortuneteller said "when this baby grows up he will use music to
express himself." True story.

Jen Lowe is a sincere songwriter who writes straight from the
heart. Her lyrics are direct and thoughtful, as she wastes no
time getting the heart of the matter. Having been a full time
touring percussionist and drummer with many national acts,
Jen's sense of the song writing process is strong. She comes
to you from Atlanta, GA where she has played and been influenced by
great artists such as Angie Aparo, Keni Thomas, Jason Mraz, and
Tristan Prettyman. Her stage presence is larger than life as
she engages the audience in a story, a witty comment, or just her
keen ability to entertain.
Jen is pleased to bring to her audience her first record entitled
"From The End Of This Hallway." Produced by Tim Acres and
mixed by Steve Rizzo, this album will take you in from the first
note. Whether on the stage or in the studio, Jen takes you on
her journey that will leave remembering her sentiments for a long
Beaumont is alive - Dr
From the two track album (what is an album these days) Post-apocolyptic merry melodies
Dr Kananga, conspirateur au sein des Space Jahourt vous a préparé
une cuisine électro qui sent bon le old school à base de hip hop,
trip hop et un soupson de Jungle. Comme dirait l'autre on ne fait
pas de la nouvelle cuisine et même si certaines plages peuvent
sembler lounge c'est pour mieux rebondir après. Les beats sont
lourds, les samples de cuivres et de violons sont jazzy et les
synthés fleurent bon la fin des 70s. Le tout est accompagné de ses
transitions -Entremets à base de zapping télé improbable.
Beginner's Luck - Lindalou and Michael
From the album Beginner's Luck which was originally released in
2003. They finally got around to releasing it on Jamendo in April
Wild spirited teenagers surprise themselves decades later with this
CD of close harmonies, true stories and adventures reflecting their
love for life and each other.
They've made old men cry, and young women laugh, and vice versa.
Their music, while almost all acoustic, is diverse in styles, from
instrumental to A cappella, from story songs and love ballads to
quirky autobiographical tales.
