^M00:00:01 [ Music ] ^M00:00:03 >> Hey everybody, what's up? I'm Angie DeHoyos and these are our picks taken straight from our site, music.download.com. My music pick for this week is the electro-funk duo known as Chromeo with a new album out called Fancy Footwork. ^M00:00:16 [ Music ] ^M00:00:19 >> For over a year now, Chromeo, also known as Dave 1 and Pizza, have been making boat-cutter [assumed spelling] heavy, over to the top synth space music of the 70's and 80's. ^M00:00:27 [ Music ] ^M00:00:32 >> We have the video from one of my favorite tracks off the album called Tenderoni and I have to say it's super cheese but so good at the same time. ^M00:00:38 [ Music ] ^M00:00:45 >> Overall Fancy Footwork is definitely one of my favorite records so far this year. If you grew up listening to cheesy 80's music, then I think you'll dig the Chromeo. ^M00:00:54 [ Music ] ^M00:01:01 >> Hey this is Peter Gavin and my pick this week is the soundtrack from the TV show House, M.D. The 12-track compilation features a bunch of great artists such as Ben Harper, Lucinda Williams and Massive Attack. ^M00:01:13 [ Music ] ^M00:01:19 >> Now I never actually watched the TV show but I heard it's great; my mom watches it. From the soundtrack alone I can tell the producers have good taste. There are some previously unreleased tracks including one by Sarah McGlocklin and another from Elvis Costello who does the unique version of Christina Aguillera's hit song, Beautiful. ^M00:01:37 [ Music ] ^M00:01:47 >> We have the full album stream plus a free download of Josh Roush's song so check it out by searching for House, M.D. on our site. ^M00:01:54 [ Music ] ^M00:02:01 >> Hey how's it going? I'm Kurt from Download Music and my pick this week is the Brooklyn indie Rock band Oakley Hall. They have a brand new album out called I'll Follow You. ^M00:02:11 [ Music ] ^M00:02:19 >> The band is named after a California novelist Oakley Hall. He's best known for writing a Western novel, War Law which means it's no real coincidence there's a gritty western influence in the music. ^M00:02:28 [ Music ] ^M00:02:36 >> Still their not a typical alt-country band. The music on I'll Follow You is actually hard to pin down. It's as much about rock and psychedelia as it is about roots in full. ^M00:02:45 [ Music ] ^M00:02:53 >> They have 2 MP3's from the free download. Check 'em out; I think it's the band's strongest album to date and I think the group is really poised to get a lot of new attention. ^M00:03:01 [ Music ] ^M00:03:06 >> On top of that we had the band in for a Pod Cast last year and they played 3 songs from previous albums live at Studio C. To find that session, just go to our Pod Cast page which is found at studioc.cnet.com. ^M00:03:19 [ Music ] ^M00:03:30
