New in rotation this week: WAR CHILD compilation, Ben Kweller, Neko Case, The Vines, Ida Maria, ++++


WAR CHILD presents: "HEROES" - An Album To Benefit Children Affected By The War. Features
Beck covering Bob Dylan, Yeah Yeah Yeahs covering the Ramones, TV On the
Radio covering David Bowie's "Heroes", plus The Hold Steady, Hot Chip, Peaches, Scissor Sisters, Franz Ferdinand, and LOTS MORE.

Ben Kweller ‐ Changing Horses ‐ Ben embraces his country roots that have been slowly been building up throughout his previous albums. Quite a change from his previous records, but not too rootsy that his current fans will be scared away. This is perhaps Ben Kweller's most honest/raw work yet. Recommended for fans of lyric‐driven folk ballads and twangy Americana.

Also added: Neko Case ‐ Middle Cyclone, The Vines‐ Melodia, & Ida Maria ‐ s/t.
