EMix! Radio

I'm a big fan of EMix! Radio on They play some solid adult alternative music, much like you listen to here on Vehement Flame. I even paid for premium membership so I could listen on my Android phone and sans commercials. Here's a widget to hear the great stuff they play:

Wendy James

Wendy James, the front woman for the Transvision Vamps, a popular pop/punk group from the early 90s(!), recently came out with a new album, I Came Here To Blow Minds. And it's a great one! Here is the cut that first came to my attention:

Wendy James - You Tell Me

And here's the title cut from the album:

I Came Here To Blow Minds

Free Friday : Amazon Avalanche

A whole bunch of samplers came available on Amazon MP3. Haven't really had a chance to listen to many of them, but here's of what I found.

PS: Music storage is now completely free on the Amazon Cloud storage. So go for it!

The Wooden Birds

The Wooden Birds make my kind of music - funky lyrics with some spunky guitar work. You can get a free sampler by spending your email address for three songs, which includes a couple of really great covers and this original tune:

The Wooden Birds - Two Matchsticks

I originally heard them on the 2010 Barsuk sampler. This is a great tune too:

The Wooden Birds - False Alarm

The Album Leaf

Someone pointed out this lovely song by The Album Leaf, Thule, saying it sounded like the Childs song I posted earlier. I agree, it is very nice! And, as is often the way, I have a song by them from the 2010 Amazon sampler Digital Bang : The 2010 Sub Pop Sampler (which is unfortunately no longer available).

The Album Leaf - Falling From The Sun

First Aid Kit

It's been too long since I've posted here - time to get back into the swing of things! Lots of great music. Might as well start back in with Yet Another Swedish Band, this time First Aid Kit. The sisters Johanna and Klara Söderberg put together a very nice folk/pop sound.
