Tunes

BHI BHIMAN

My newest obsession, Bhi Bhiman layers of-the-moment, deep-thinking social commentary with upbeat, head-bobbing melodies.

PHIL COOK

Most of North Carolinian Phil Cook's southern rock tunes feature fun, friendly vocals, but his instrumental work is wonderous.

LAURA MVULA

First heard this song on Radio Marginal while sitting in a window at a hostel in Lisbon, Portugal. One of those perfect moments.

LANGHORNE SLIM

Have you ever grabbed a used CD out of the $2 bin and gotten incredibly lucky? Yeah. I did.

JOSH RITTER

He may just be the best story-teller making music today. Case in point.

tUnE-yArDs

I heard these ladies at Pickathon one year when I had a break in other shows, and they blew my head right off.

LUCKY BROWN

I started listening to jazz radio station KMHD while working with Studio Jelly, and it totally expanded my taste in music.
