Cats On Fire (the best band to come out of Finland) have just released a 20-track compilation of some of their earlier recordings. The compilation starts off with a cover of one of my all-time favorite songs, White Town's "Your Woman". Get the album on Matinee records.

{ mp3 } Cats On Fire - Your Woman (White Town Cover)

The Divine Comedy release a new single from their tenth (!!) album "Bang Goes The Knighthood" on May 23rd. The single is titled "At The Indie Disco" -- which is where I was in Glasgow on Sunday night!


{ mp3 } The Divine Comedy - At The Indie Disco

As I recently returned from Glasgow (my current favorite city), I should mention one Scottish band to check out.....

Zoey van Goey are that band! They will soon to release their second album. I was fortunate to catch them play a matinee show at Captains Rest on Sunday and thought they were terrific. Their debut album was released in the US earlier this year. Highly recommended!

{ mp3 } Zoey van Goey - We Don't Have That Kind of Bread


Also, if you're in NYC this Friday, i'll probably play these songs and many more at MONDO! So come dance with me!



Indonesian pop band Annemarie are currently working hard recording their second album. Their debut album "ABC on TV" was one my favorite albums of 2007. Their charming and tuneful indiepop is perfect for summer afternoons. The new album will feature latin and jazz elements, while still holding onto their signature jangly guitar sound.

Annemarie - Blue Sky on Holiday
