    The one album I would strongly recommend is Middle Class Rut – No Name No Colour. They’re like the White Stripes because it’s only two guys, but they have some great songs with great lyrics. Free song courtesy of Front Magazine
    If you’re into techno at all, Daft Punk’s TRON:Legacy soundtrack is a must. Awesome sound.
    Humans – Avec Mes Mecs is another techno album that I’ve been loving since I picked it up.

  2. Alright – I admit it. I googled my name.

    Nice to know we’re getting some play in Kelowna! Thanks for the support.
