The Watch List

1. The Mint Chicks!: I received the strangest e-mail from a pr person this week. All it had was a subject line that said "The Mint Chicks!". Nothing else, no info or links, a blank message. So, I will not give you any information, I will just say... The Mint Chicks!
2. Fig Leaves: London is home to this genre bender. Deep dark electronic merge with sleazy rock n' roll to sound the is complex and intense. Listen to: Kissed (mp3)

2. All of No Man's Land is Ours by Jill Summers: A wonderfully written story that is currently featured over at Gaper's Block.
