This is completely awesome. The Tally Hall song made my day.

Ooh. Lykke Li rocked my summer, and Frightened Rabbit is one of my current favourites. This is awesome, thanks Kattullus!

This is an embarrassment of riches. I'm looking forward to listening to this in my off time.

Does the Frightened Rabbit sound an awful lot like "Say It To Me Now" by Swell Season? I'm kind of surprised Glenn hasn't sued.

Maybe I will get work done today... maybe. As long as there is access to Langhorne Slim, Frightened Rabbit, Tally Hall, Lykke Li, The Raveonettes, etc. I do not think work is really too likely. Does anyone know how I could get paid to sit back and appreciate music? Truly, it is what I do best.

Judith Owen is teh awesome. I've loved her work since I first heard her singing with Richard Thompson. Thanks for posting this, great find!

Nice post. I don't know many of these acts, but Shwayze is cool.

Awesome post! Can't believe everybody isn't all over this one. Oh well, our little secret. Thanks!

I think my favorite session is The Raveonettes one... which is slightly odd given that I'm not that big of a fan, though I have listened to a lot of their stuff.
