Some quick thoughts: The Submarines are delightful, potentially more on this later. I love Vox Vermillion, many others will not. The Pipettes have, indeed, dropped me in their nets. I don't remember a darn thing about Vivian Linden, The Organ, or Joseph Arthur. The Rogers Sisters were dissapointing. The Weepies are nearly perfect background music. Devotchka remain my favorite band that features a french horn. There aren't nearly enough downloads available. I have over 50 albums in the Saved For Later list. I don't have enough time to really know most of this music.
