The new U2 song, "Get On Your Boots," debuted today and I just heard it for the first time a few minutes ago on XPN. I think it's a very different sound for the band, as they continue to explore new territory.

2. The Hooters - Time After Time (live) - always liked Cyndi Lauper's version of this song, but while she made it famous, these are the guys that wrote it. This live version is pretty nice.
3. Bob Dylan & Johnny Cash - I Still Miss Someone - I recently found a whole bunch of Dylan/Cash performances online. Two great tastes that taste great together!
4. The Juliana Theory - 10,000 Questions - really like these guys, but this isn't one of my faves...
5. Soul Junk - 3PO Soul - my favorite lo-fi/punk/hip hop/jazz outfit. Prefer their oldest stuff, but this really like this song in all of it's electronic deliciousness.
6. The Fray - She Is - newer song from these guys. They are hit and miss with me, but I like this song. Really like this dude's voice.
7. Damien Jurado - Hell and Highwater - nice quietly dark tune from Jurado's debut album, Water Avenue S, on Subpop. Still a great album 12 years later...
8. Land of a Thousand Rappers - Water Displacement - Don't know much about this band but I really like their sound...and they are on Asthmatic Kitty Records...which counts for something!
9. Dean & Britta - Threw it Away - beautiful song from a seriously beautiful album. Love it.
10. The Decemberists - The Crane Wife 1 & 2 - Really like this album, though again this isn't the best song. Still, it's good.
And....ten more to keep you warm over the weekend during the supposed snowstorm...
11. Vigilantes of Love - It's Not Bothering Me
12. Mark Heard - Shaky Situation
13. Pedro the Lion - I'm Always The One Who Calls
14. Andy Pratt - That's When Miracles Occur
15. Lisa Loeb - Taffy
16. Johnny Cash - Ring of Fire
17. The Violet Burning - There is Nowhere Else
18. John Vanderslice - Numbered Lithograph
19. Hiram Ring - Breath Deep
20. Moby - Find My Baby

One of the newer bands out there that is getting a lot of buzz is Frightened Rabbit out of Scotland. The band is primarily a project of Scott Hutchison and his brother Grant, and they are really starting to catch on over on this side of the big pond.

There's a big push here in Central PA to "Buy Fresh, Buy Local" and now a relatively new website/blog can help you with that task, at least in terms of local Pennsylvania artisans and crafters. Handmade in PA (HiP) features the work of those in Pennsylvania who are creating all sort of handmade goods, from jewelry and clothing to the fine arts and pottery. If it's handmade, and from Pennsylvania, this is the site to check out.
