The David Crowder Band

Hey, have you seen this guys hair? Have you heard his songs?

The David Crowder Band hail from Waco Texas and produce quirky but sublime music. Crowder is the one with the hair and is possessed with the voice of an angel. The band produced "Collision" in Sept 2005 and it is a glorious mash of bluegrass, folk, alternative, electronic, ambient and worship, dusted with touches of genius.

Thanks to band member Jack Parker (how many bands of this quality do you know who reply to you in person!), here is a song from the album called Be Lifted or Hope Rising.

The Beautiful Letdown

We are a beautiful let down, Painfully uncool, The church of the dropouts The losers, the sinners, the failures and the fools Oh what a beautiful let down Are we salt in the wound Let us sing one true tune | Jon Forman

The VR Hypothesis

Some scientist in New Zealand is saying that physicists should seriously explore the idea that the universe is a giant virtual reality simulation. Apparently this idea goes some way to explaining philosophical issues with the big bang and tensions between Newtonian and quantum physics.

Seems Gary Larson had the same idea...

Verra Cruz

Formed in 2003 (previously Dust) by Mark James, Verra Cruz produce belting rock/blues. A howl of a voice that sounds like the owner is being run over and slide guitar to die for. What more could you want?

Thanks to VC, here is "Cold that you Feel" from their 2007 release "Emancipation".

Trump Dawgs

Trump Dawgs produce some pretty funky stuff. Led by Kenny Carter, this crew of Kansas City musicians, on a mission from God, deliver a heady mix of pop, grunge, hip hop, funk and even jazz. The band are not doing much at the moment but their stuff to date is well worth a listen.

Here is 511 from The Art of Crushin', played direct from their website.

You can download a couple more free songs from or preview songs from one of Kenny's side projects; KLT Presents...Butch at CD Baby.

[edit] Thanks to Kenny, here is Lamblast from KLT Presents...Butch
