The Second in the Strip Tease: Some More Bro

Praise for Bro is out of this world. It even had a spin or two soundtracking Kramerbooks and there are now copies floating all over the Earth.

>> Featured Artist: Lily Allen

It's summer. The Toaster included, we all like to unplug and get in the pool. Lily Allen seems to jump in with us on "LDN" even if the lyrics are kind of a downer and we suspect her optimistic chorus ("Sun is in the sky, oh why, oh why would I want to be anywhere else?) is a bit sarcastic.

This Brit's debut, Alright, Still has a number of tracks that the indie kids like to dance to. And she fits right in on Bro.

>> Album Lookout: Cansei de Ser Sexy
CSS - Released: July 11, 2006 Sub Pop

So you want to keep dancing? Track 3, "Music Is My Hot Hot Sex," brought to you by the lovely Brazilian pop group CSS, which stands for Cansei de Ser Sexy, which we're told is translated to Tired of Being Sexy. Hott.

Indeed, music is our great-grandaughter.

>> Reverting to: 2003

The Long Winters have a new album out, which is in queue to get its review from Mister Toaster. Investigating the new album, however, brought to our attention "Cinnamon," which polishes up the second side of this mix. Upon hearing the sheer catchiness, Bro insisted. And the rest will go down as history.

Dig in. Next week we'll resume our regularly scheduled programming.
