A nice little selection of tunes I hope you agree?
There is nothing more satisfying than finding a new band or singer/songwriter and sharing it with others to listen to. I've had a chance look at that blip.fm and although I do like the concept, I find it hard to share the newest of new music. I will keep keeping on with it until I can find a way around it, but in the meantime just enjoy these tunes and if you have any rec's for me don't hesitate to drop me a line. I'm always looking for the perfect song!
