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!

Hey folks! What a neat little trip we have planned for you this Sunday (July 4)  @ Midnight or ANYTIME/ONDEMAND (once it’s posted.. not really sure about when that automated upload happens… Monday, maybe?) But we’ll get you a link ASAP!

In this show: we start out with a Bolly/Hollywood soundtrack hit from Academy Award-winning Artist/Producer/Composer AR Rahman.   We’ll take you to France to experience the triphop/electronic beats of Emilie Simon then later in the show we go Down Under with Xavier Rudd, a one-man band that will simply astound you (see video below).

 We’ll come back with some DJ Krush some more jazz-infused trip-hop; back to India with Apache Indian. Then we feature music with Latino influences from the likes of Grammy-winner Bebe and Jarabe De Palo, before finishing out the show with a remix from M.I.A. Hope you enjoy!
