The Watch List

1. Adam Taylor - Maryland folk singer, Adam Taylor has a voice that will take him far. Listen to: Untitled (mp3)
2. Fable & The World Flat - This Wisconsin band is one part hip-hop and one part indie rock, it is a beautiful combination. It get's me everytime.
3. Motorcade - Auckland , New Zealand sounds like an interesting place, and it is home to Motorcade. The name made me think of Motorhead, but their sound is more like The Killers, Franz, etc. Nice and fun indie-dance-pop, and there is nothing wrong with that. The band just released their second Ep "Into the Fall". Listen to: My Friends (mp3)

1. "Mining of Data Prompted Fight of U.S. Spying" by Scott Shane & David Johnston - I don't really care if Gonzalez lied, but the NSA's secret surveillance program is a major problem. Whether it is data mining or wire tapping, our freedoms are being taken in the name of security. We allow this because we are controlled by fear. Is it a coincidence that the same week of this scandal, word that the Taliban had regrouped came out?
