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!

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!
