Martin Sexton —"Wild Angels"
From Seeds on Kitchen Table
Renowned as a die-hard road warrior, Sexton has traveled the globe with his guitar slung on his back and a heart full of soul. His songs are intricate and spirited… His fans range from teenage students to jocks to musicians, from the East Village to Wall Street, tradesmen to doctors, black, white, young and old, all singing together in three-part harmony. To see the crowd at a Martin Sexton concert is to witness a cross-section of America.


Air —"Once Upon a Time"
From Pocket Symphony on Astralwerks
Now entering the 10th year of a highly illustrious career that has seen the band grow in stature to become one of the most instantly recognizable names in music, Parisian duo Air (Nicolas Godin and JB Dunckel) return with Pocket Symphony, a career masterpiece and their most seductive and accomplished work to date. Jean-Benoît Dunckel and Nicolas Godin are modernists. Air embrace the new. Their music is intellectually stimulating yet intuitively simple; elegiac and triumphal; beyond pop and yet resolutely of it, too.


Prosser —"I Met a Girl"
From Prosser: Self-Titled on spinART
Prosser is the new project from Eric Woodruff (formerly of Bellingham, WA, space rock band Delay). His self-titled debut release is a melding of Indie Rock and Alt-Country, with some psychedelic and folk influences thrown in for good measure. Fans of Nick Drake, Cracker, Elliot Smith, Wilco, and heartbreak-induced whiskey drinking music will not be able to resist.


Arcade Fire —"Black Mirror"
From Neon Bible on Merge
The Arcade Fire spent most of 2006 holed up in a small church in a small town outside of Montreal. They were recording their second album Neon Bible. It was a slow year, mostly.
