Some of my favorite discoveries of 2006...

I found a lot of new (to me) bands this year. I'll share some to close things out as I work feverishly on the new design. Also, Congrats to Jenny and Rick on their new baby!

Anyway, turn off the monkeytunes up top and takea look at these! We'll start with Over the Rhine, a great folk group. Sorry for the poor video quality, but they don't have much on YouTube. Great group!


Next, as a change of pace, Billy Talent, a Canadian punk group that rocked balls on the Conan O'Brien show. Here's "Red Flag"


Erin McKeown is another great folksy musician. Someone spliced some home movie to her song "Born to Hum". Check it out!


We'll finish this post with Iron and Wine."Southern Anthem is a great song evocative of Sam Beam's best work. He wrote, produced, and played every instrument on this song (and every song on the album The Creek Drank the Cradle).
