Chris & Georgena Taylor present Imported (airs Sundays @ midnight on WKMS-FM) or On-Demand here.

In this episode we start off en espanol, playing some Los Bunkers (Chile) and The Pinker Tones (Spain). We dabble with some Chinese pop music and some Russian psychadelic-electronica / demented Mario Paint tune… One of Georgena’s faves The Noisettes rock out; and a German singer covers a Linkin Park song in some opera-ish glory. We ❤ hearing from you: importedwkms@gmail.com

This episode is fun! We start out in Iceland with a pair of great selections from there, play a bit of Moby, then bounce from Paris to Quebec jamming to some indie rock and the lyrically-soothing rap of MC Solaar. We feature a nice Bollywood track from India and get a little poppy with Lykke Li. Come take a quick spin around the world with us!

Yeah, this playlist is pretty fun. We have a selection from MySpace-spawned, French band Yelle; another awesome track from our (2nd) fave musical Canadians: Malajube; and we succumb to one of Georgena’s favorite artists: Florence and the Machine (watch the video).

We also have a space opera! (sortof/notreally)
