Comment: Because Direct Current’s taste is so different than mine (yes, I know, but one thing at a time) their list of new releases works as a litmus taste, I scan the list and check and check and check and more than three quarters of the time I check out. So let’s move merrily along: The Wombats, Laura Marling, Nellie McKay, Estelle, Juliana Hatfield Three, Martin Sexton, Texax… maybe I am being a little difficult but those are the ones that catchy my eyes on this list.
