listen to Como Te Llama in its entirety on his MYSPACE, in case you still need convincing to buy this record (definitely one of the best of 2008 so far)

definitely listen to "Spooky Couch", "Victory at Monterey" and "Feed Me Jack or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Peter Sellers", as well as his standout tracks "GfC" and "Bargain of a Century"

Band of the Week: Jamie Cullum

I fell in love with Jamie three years ago and my heart has not faltered one bit since then. now it's your turn to be exposed to this amazing talent

it's a nice break sometimes from rock n roll, to listen to some smooth jazz, from a talented British musician.

a new album is in the works =)

Morning Benders on Daytrotter!

take a look at the article and download some free tunes HERE

I love these guys, and not just because they are from my very own Be-zerkeley.

they are getting the attention they deserve (Spin had them as artist of the day a while back)

who was that other band from Berkeley that got big? Green Day? yeah, that sounds about right haha

now, take a listen to this and try to not enjoy it. I dare you.
