Imported airs Sundays @ midnight on WKMS or listen to it On-Demand here.

In this episode, we get a little house/electronica up front, but sink into some Swedish indie rock jams by Peter, Bjorn, and John. We introduce some fine salsa by Rey Ruiz, get down with the upbeat Muse among several others. Best of all (and we build it up the whole show…) we have an epic (+15 min) long track from Cut Copy! Check us out and drop us a line: importedwkms@gmail.com

Hey folks. This episode is a particularly fun one!

As partially-mentioned during the show, Dengue has been featured in depth on NPR.
