Augustana All Foggy

I heard Augustana for the first time in June. I really liked the song, but forgot about the band. Then, they played the video on 120 Minutes last night and I remembered the song and how good it was. They're definitely alt-country which I totally dig. They remind me a little bit of Old Pike, a band that's no longer in existence, but was also a bit melancholy and melodic. The band started in Illinois in college and was quickly signed to a record deal. Check out Augustana's official website for news, sound clips, and tour dates. You can also check out the video for "Stars and Boulevards" there. Pre-order the album.

Tina Dico

Tina Dico

You probably haven't heard the name Tina Dico (sometimes spelled "Dickow") before, but I bet you've heard her voice. She's one of the many female vocalists on Zero 7's latest record "When It Falls". She sings the song "Home" and has a truly beautiful voice. Check out her performance of the song from Jimmy Kimmel Live. While you're there, check out another Zero 7 track that Tina sings back-up on called "Somersault". Tina's from Denmark and her debut cd "In The Red" came out there in July. It's not out in the states yet, but will be released this fall. Check out her official site for news and music. Buy the ep "Far".
