Best new tune for me has been Aloe Blacc so far.

So people actually listen to the songs before voting?

I'm glad to hear that.

I've already listened to At Home He's a Tourist by Gang of Four 3 times from Tie 1. I love it!

I like that Terry Callier version of Cotton Eyed Joe - made me download its parent album from eMusic.

Some nice Brazilian stuff from Rita Lee and Astrud Gilberto. There's something really refreshing about Brazilian pop, I find.

Son House's 'John The Revelator' was, er, a revelation. Seriously powerful music.

Rahsaan Roland Kirk's version of Ain't No Sunshine is the best thing I've discovered so far I think.

As astonishing as this may seem, my fave discovery so far has been 'She's Gone' by Hall & Oates. Completely passed me by till now. What a superb slow jam!
