Next, South Africa's essential Ladysmith Black Mambazo teamed up with the female UK a cappella group The Mint Juleps for a cover of The Tokens "The Lion Sleeps Tonight", which was itself a cover of The Weavers "Wimoweh", which was itself a cover of the South African songwriter Soloman Linda (whose family only recently started getting royalties) song by the same name... but I digress. Anyway, it was taken from a rare 1990 French CD-Single, called The Lion Sleeps Tonight (Amazon). Next was Cameroon's Henri Dikongué with the title track from his 1999 album Wa (iTunes, Amazon).

Then we heard Ladytron with "Destroy Everything You Touch" from their brand new album called Witching Hour (iTunes, Amazon, Other Music).

Season 2, Episode 41

First up North Carolina's The Rosebuds did "Shake Our Tree" from their new album Birds Make Good Neighbors (iTunes, Amazon, Other Music) which I think is more interesting than their 2003 album Make Out (iTunes, Amazon, Other Music), but not necessarily better. Next was Canada's up-and-coming, pop sensation-to-be Columbus with their song "Christian Girls" from their new EP called, appropriately enough, Debut EP (Scratch Records). Then San Francisco's art-rockers Deerhoof did "O'Malley, Former Underdog" from their brand spankin' new album (currently only in iTunes, but coming out on cd on the 11th) The Runners Four (iTunes) which is great, if you like that sort of thing.

ON THIS WEEK'S SHOW: First up, a fun new group from Japan called PINE*am with the song "Do I Know You" from their album Pull the Rabbit Ears (iTunes, Amazon) most of which sounds like it could be heard during an anime film where the main characters just play video games all the time.

Also check out the video to their song "Singing In the Rain". Next was Ireland's Hal who, from track to track, you can actually hear the sound of their hat-tipping to The Beach Boys or Harry Nilsson, but in this song, "Fools By Your Side", they sounds more like something else I can't pinpoint. The song is from their at-least-average self-titled debut album (iTunes, Amazon, Other Music). Then Melbourne, Australia's (NOT NYC'S AS I SAY IN THE EPISODE!), New Buffalo, did "I've Got You and You've Got Me" from last year's The Last Beautiful Day (iTunes, Amazon, Other Music). And finally Iceland's fantastic Sigur Ros did "Hoppípolla" which I am told means "Hop in a Puddle" from their forthcoming (released tomorrow) new album Takk (iTunes, Amazon), which means "Thanks".NOTE: This week's episode features a clip from Real Time with Bill Maher.

Season 2, Episode 36

First up, California's fascinating band The Heavenly States answer the question "what do you get if you cross a punk singer with a rock band a pop tune writer?" with their song "Elastic Days" from their newest, quality album Black Comet (iTunes, Amazon). Then Chicago's The Fruit Bats did a great song called "Lives of Crime" from their great new album Spelled in Bones (iTunes, Amazon, Other Music).

Next was Norway's fluttery songstress Hanne Hukkelberg with "Cast Anchor" from her 2005 EP by the same name (iTunes, Amazon, Other Music). And finally, Los Angeles' Radar Brothers who, the worst thing you can say about is that they are so consistent as to be boring in large doses, did better track called "Papillion" off their newest album The Fallen Leaf Pages (iTunes, Amazon, Other Music).

SPECIAL NEW BANDS THAT SOUND OLD EPISODE! First up, NYC's great new group that could easily pass for being from 40 years ago The Dansettes did a demo song called "Forty Days". They have a new EP coming out soon. Get on their email list for details. Next was Big Sandy (without his Fly-Rite Boys) doing a 50's nod called "Have Love Will Travel" from his album Dedicated to You (iTunes, Amazon).

Season 2, Episode 34

First up, Liverpool's Kathryn Williams did a cover of Nico's "These Days" from her all covers album Relations (iTunes, Amazon). On the same album she covers Pavement's "Spit on a Stranger" which is one of my favorite of their songs. Her's isn't as good as Mr. Malkmus', but it sure beats Nickel Creek's attempt. Next was the song "Forces" from Sweden's The Concretes new release of their album of previously-hard-to-find-in-the-US-songs Layourbattleaxedown (iTunes, Amazon, Other Music). Then we heard Seattle's pre-teen wonder-girls Smoosh, and their song "Massive Curve" from their only album so far She Like Electric (iTunes, Amazon, Other Music). Smoosh is playing a couple of shows in NYC, and elsewhere. So check these kids out if possible. And finally New Orleans' most promising rock band in recent memory, World Leader Pretend, did "Tit for Tat" from their debut album Punches (iTunes, Amazon).NOTE: This week's episode features a clip from The Daily Show with Jon Stewart.

Season 2, Episode 33

(SPECIAL EXTRA-LONG MY FAVORITE COUNTRY/WESTERN SONGS EPISODE!)First up, the Canadian-born country/rockabilly/dance-hall-geniuses Ray Condo & His Ricochets are on full tilt for "Done Gone Crazy" from their 1997 album Door to Door Maniac (Amazon). Then The Dave & Deke Combo did their toe-tappingly fun song "Two Timin' Mama" from their 1996 album Hollywood Barn Dance (Amazon). Next I laid the smack down with some quality country covers of non-country songs. First was the Gap-tastic Queen cover by Dwight Yoakam of "Crazy Little Thing Called Love" from, among other places, his Very Best of... (iTunes, Amazon). Then Austin's Dollar Store did the best Cher cover ever, "Believe" from their not-terribly-good self-titled album (iTunes, Amazon). (Cowboy hats off to Coverville for turning me on to that one.) Then it was back to the good-ole traditional country/western sounds with Tennessee Ernie Ford doing "Ballad of Davy Crockett" from any number of his around 100 releases, like this Greatest Hits (Amazon). Then we took it to the trailer park for Southern Culture on the Skids stand-out Little Debbie Love Ballad "Camel Walk" from their album Dirt Track Date (iTunes, Amazon, Other Music). Faux-old-timey-band Big Sandy & His Fly-Rite Boys were next with "Three Years Blind" from their 1997 album Feelin' Kinda Lucky (iTunes, Amazon). Then we heard two songs by the legendary Austin country songster Blaze Foley. First was "Wouldn't that Be Nice" (not a Beach Boys cover), followed by the title track to the album, his prescient "Oval Room," which one can only assume was written about the Bush Dynasty (iTunes, Lost Art Records). And finally the classic western swing band The Light Crust Doughboys did "Happy Trails" from their limited edition, no longer available album Doughboy Way.NOTE: This week's episode features a clip from the podcast for Ebert & Roeper at the Movies as they review the new Dukes of Hazard movie.

Season 2, Episode 32

First up, the United Kingdom's great new rock act, The Envelopes did "It is the Law" from their forthcoming album (released this week) Demon (Amazon), you can buy this song from iTunes. Next was some quality German electronica by Mouse on Mars called "Send Me Shivers" from their most recent album from last year called Radical Connector (iTunes, Amazon, Other Music). Then one of my favorite songs by the band Solex called "One Louder Solex" from their 1998 album Solex vs. The Hitmeister (iTunes, Amazon, Other Music). And finally from the eagerly anticipated new album from Michigan born Sufjan Stevens called Illinoise (iTunes, Amazon, Other Music), we heard the appropriately titled song "Chicago."

Season 2, Episode 31

First up, New York City's awesome, modern-day-ragtime-band The New Rags did two songs off their new EP Take Jennie to Brooklyn (Silent Stereo Records). We heard "Your Room" and one that reminds me of older Of Montreal called "Love of My Life". Next was a song by former Pixie and longtime quality rocker Frank Black called "I Burn Today" from his brand new album Honeycomb (iTunes, Amazon). Then another New York City indie rock band, The Cloud Room, with their song "We Sleep in the Ocean" from their self-titled debut album (iTunes, Amazon). They have a great video for their standout song "Hey Now Now" on their website as well. And finally Andover, Massachusetts' longtime pop-punk band Piebald did "Part of Your Body is Made Out of Rock" from their 2004 album All Ears, All Eyes, All the Time (iTunes, Amazon).NOTE: This week's episode has a Sounds in My Head first... an ad! But it's not really an ad, because no one is paying me to play it. It's really just a promo for The Dorktones Podcast, which is a cool show out of Norway that features classic surf/soul/reggae/rock/etc. This week's show also had a clip from the July 21st episode of Air America Radio's The Majority Report about Bush's "bold pick" of John Roberts for the supreme court.

First up, the UK's Interpol, known as Apartment, did "Everyone Says I'm Paranoid" from their EP by the same name (iTunes, Amazon). Then Austin's Ghostland Observatory did "Silver City" from their recently released, self-titled debut (Indierect Records). After listening to Ghostland Observatory's album I was reminded of New York City's The Bravery, so we heard their fantastic "The Ring Song" from their self-titled debut (iTunes, Amazon, Other Music) from earlier this year. And finally on this episode, California's alt/country King Straggler did "Rebel" from their new, also self-title debut (iTunes, CD Baby). NOTE: This week's episode features a clip The Muppet Show.
