Frederico Aubele: Berlin 13
Playing For Change 2: Songs Around the World
Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds: Murder Ballads


Our initial selection is from Rob Levy, who comes in with Frederico Aubele. Rob says of Aubele, "an Argentinian guitarist who dabbles in down tempo a little but but makes these gorgeous sounding records!" This is his track "No One."

That's off his latest album, Berlin 13, available from Amazon as both an MP3 download and a regular CD.


Doc Ezra joins the fray by reminding me that Playing For Change has a new album out.

That's available as a CD/DVD and MP3 download both.


Well, Rob also threw in Murder Ballads, one of my favorites from Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds. He says of the album: "This one is an underrated masterpiece. Shane MacGowan, PJ Harvey and Kylie Minogue are amongst the guests who sing with Australia's National Treasure." He didn't specify a song, however, so I'm going to step in and pick my personal favorite, the truly warped "Curse of Millhaven." Here is Dr. Cave from 2001.

It's recently been released as a CD/DVD edition. It's also available as an MP3 download.

Thievery Corporation: Culture of Fear
Black Nasa

Rob also throws some Thievery Corporation to you...their new album Culture of Fear hits tomorrow.

You can order that on CD via Amazon.


The one I'll throw in for this time...an older track I just stumbled back across and was reminded how much I enjoyed this album. It's Black Nasa from their self-titled album. This is "Diamond Girl."

That's available as an MP3 download or CD from Amazon.


Here's an additional pick thrown in by Doc, which I find positively delightful: it's The Andy Lim Trio featuring Rage Against the Machine. It's edited, so it's somewhat SFW. But just be aware. And groove with this.
