    Good Evening Mr. Slavens! Another amazing show as always.

    New to me this week are ‘The X X’ – nice cool dreamy pop in a song called Crystalized
    http://thexx.info/videos/33/crystalised

    New to me in September was ‘The Mad Violinist and the Symphony Crack Orchestra’ – The just released their debut on August 1st. It’s on Amazon and I-Tunes.

    And for one of my all time favorite artists a guy named Matt Johnson who (along with Johnny Marr and his signature guitar work) records as ‘The The’ This track features a duet with Matt and Sinead O’Connor, Kingdom of Rain. A nicely done anti-ballad.

    Thanks for playing First Aid Kit. Will be catching them at ACL next weekend but I would rather hear them at the Kessler. In the female singer songwriter vein how about some Lorri McKenna from up Boston way?

    Hey Paul
    I stopped in the station the other day and left two copies of the sound track for our film
    “Fight Songs of the Forsaken Generation” from the movie “M15-F1T5″

    If i had to pick one to ask you to play it would be hard
    “Thank You” by Corey Howe and the Dead Flowers
    is a good one and F CC acceptable

    All of the bands are local

    Let me know what you think and if the albums are not there I can drop another off
