1. The Beesknees: I received a tip from a friend this week about a great new Chicago group. The Beesknees are an exciting mix of dance and soul, and they will make you move!
2. Anthony Rochester: I am positive that Anthony is the first musician from Tasmania that I have ever mentioned. His lazy vocals and fresh sounds are almost enough to get the image of the Tazmanian Devil out of your mind. Listen to: Lipscombe Larder (mp3)
3. Griffen: Chicago rapper Griffen has some major skills. His latest album is called B-Boycott and has a great cover which depicts Bush taking a bit out of the Statue of Liberty. Listen to: B-Boycott (mp3)

4. Daniel Maurer Brocabulary: The New Man-i-festo of Dude Talk: Check out the trailer! It looks funny, but seriously why does it take a book like this to get a major budget. I won't judge until I read it, but honestly why?
