PHOX — Slow Motion ::: omg omg, this whole album is amazing, it’s like sea salt caramel for your ear drums.

FUR CUPS FOR TEETH — Buffalo ::: a really, really solid femme punk band with pretty sparkles of electronica.

KAN WAKAN — Forever Found ::: dreamy, i-am-a-strong-independent-emotionally-complex-lady music.  loving this record.
