On the wget menu

Can Joann, Endure en Vogue
A sweet, petite, amuse oreille to start things off.

Cloud Cult, When Water Comes to Life
Beverage: starts off sounding like symphonic TV ad music, but soon develops into an insistent diatribe on our aquatic origins.

Ratatat, Mirando

The Retail Sectors, The First Step to End the Life
A light, airy morsel that develops into a full-bodied instrumental with a metallic aftertaste.

Sven Libaek, Inner Space: Dark World
A smooth, chilled, after-dinner drink with notes of the "Hill Street Blues" theme.
