Sometimes it's scary how well li'l ole last.fm knows our likes and. . .loves. Here is a sampling of what "they've" recommended or made available for free downloading activity. Left click arrows to listen, right click bandnames or song titles to download. We kind of went "Grrrr" when Blogger wouldn't let us include more than 200 characters' worth of labels, so we'll be adding some more last.fm

Andrew W.K. may have had his dreams rock and roll diplomacy crushed , but that doesn't mean someone else can't make the world a better place one guitar solo at a time. As The News-Leader reports , Springfield, MO indie-pop rockers Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin have been appointed Cultural Ambassadors to Russia by the United States' State Depatment. What's more, they've been invited to headline a Russian music festival, which coincidentally is being sponsored by the Boris Yeltsin Foundation. Let those who ever critiqued their name feel [...]
Hesitant adult despair gives way to wholesome adolescent angst. I never would've thought that this slight (and terribly named) band would've popped up a second time on the 'blague. But these kids have good pop sense and a dorkiness you can't help but nod along to, even as you tune out the insipid words. Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin - Dead Right
It's been a great year - arguably the best since Prince's pre-"formerly known as" glory days - for soulful, chanteuse-driven electro. Look no further than Jessie Ware, Sky Ferreira, Solange Knowles and now Dragon Inn 3, a trio led by Roni Dickey and fleshed out with her brother Phil (of indie-pop geniuses Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin) and Brook Linder. The group's latest, "Rocket Launcher," finds Dickey getting breathy and calling in "late for work" over humming synths and drum tracks straight from the John Hughes IMDb page. The soundtrack to your next montage. [...]

When Philip Dickey starts a band, he looks to his closest compatriots to fill out the ranks. In high school, he hooked up with his friend Will Knauer to form Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin , adding his new pal John Robert Cardwell as a college freshman. For his latest endeavor, he looked no further than his own family and the man who's been behind the lens for each SSLYBY video. With his sister Roni Dickey and camera-man-turned-bandmate Brook Linder, they became Dragon Inn 3 . The new band is set to self-release their debut [...]
St. Louis is mostly known for beer and baseball- and those few years in a row where it was ranked as the country's most dangerous city, but Detroit took that title from them recently. While some of music's most famous stars are from the St. Louis area (Miles Davis, Chuck Berry, and Ike Turner to name just a few), it has never been a well-known music town. Growing up in the area, I remember the closest St. Louis came to widespread fame was The Urge's "Jump Right In" playing on MTV, and being the closest major city to where Jeff [...]
Soundsupply Drop 2 from Soundsupply on Vimeo . We previously wrote about Soundsupply a few months ago, but with the release of the second bunch of albums we thought it was something worth revisiting in more detail. Over the past two years, the bundle model has become a viable distribution channel in the world of games. The idea is simple: gather up a bunch of independent games and sell them for cheap, usually without digital rights management (DRM) and with the bulk of the money raised [...]
I've been digging through my old records lately and I can't believe just how awesome music was between 2003 and 2007. This awesomeness has inspired a new series, The Throwback Mix Series , which will be a six or seven installment set of mixes each containing 20 songs that I loved during that time span - and each mix will be completely rad. Spread the word and be sure to support the artists you enjoy. Neutral Milk Hotel - "Holland, 1945" [...]
