Free Download: Making Movies
It's still Winter and this song is hot. This band has blend musics of Afro Cuban, Reggae and indie rock. Listen up to their song here

Artist: Making Movies
Hail From: Kansas City
Song: 'Cuna De Vida'
Album: A La Deriva [iTunes] [Amazon]
Sounds Like: Givers, Devendra Banhart

In Their Words: "'Cuna de Vida' is a song I wrote about the power of human sexuality. The character speaking is a bit abusive and 'machista' while on the other hand is a bit of a heartbroken man watching his relationship end. I've been doing radio interviews in Panama promoting this song and the DJs have been tripping out of over the lyrics. Some nights it's uncomfortable to sing ... but I love it." -- Singer Enrique Javier Chi

Free Download: Picture Day
Here's a band that has a similar sound to Uncle Tupelo.  Check out Picture Day.

Artist: Picture Day
Hail From: St. Louis
Song: 'Madoline'
Album: Every Day Is Picture Day
Sounds Like: Guided by Voices, Uncle Tupelo

In Their Words: "'Madoline' is us consciously trying to do something upbeat, and having fun with that. The verses are about Halloweens in Madison, Wisc. and the chorus is inspired by Del Shannon and Frankie Valli, except with Brian May-style layered guitars. And I can't front like Robert Pollard [of Guided by Voices] hasn't been a huge inspiration to me. The initial guitar part on 'Madoline' is me trying to rip off 'Wings of Thorn' [from that band's 2000 album 'Universal Truths and Cycles.']" -- Singer Brian Weigert

Free Download: Water Liars
You may have heard the new artist 105.5 Triple M is playing "Dawes."  Here's a similar sound. 

Artist: Water Liars
Hail From: Water Valley, Miss.
Song: 'Fake Heat'
Album: Wyoming [Pre-Order]
Sounds Like: My Morning Jacket, Dawes

In Their Words: "'Fake Heat' is more or less about loneliness, and how easy it is to let it really get hold of you and take you places you didn't mean to go with people you didn't mean to go with, and then there you are, and what comes next?" -- Singer Justin Kinkel-Schuster

Good news for Midwest coach accused of child pornography. ~Stevi

World's Worst iPod:Jay Ferguson "Thunder Island"
The late 1970s weren't necessarily a great time for music, but there were a few gems. This song may or may not have been one of them. We got a lot of love for Jay Ferguson's "Thunder Island" which was a hit in early 1978. It made it up to...
