1. Satin-voiced folksinger James Vincent McMorrow. Listen to Down the Burning Ropes.
2. A great act to see live: Joe Acheson Quartet, or rather their new name Hidden Orchestra. Listen to Celtic Harp.
3. Australian indie pop folk duo Agnes Kain, who apparently don't have any streamable songs here anymore. But anyway, they're good.
4. Indonesian synthpop extravaganza Goodnight Electric. Their track Am I robot? is free to download, yipee!
5. Blippy electronic act Lissi Dancefloor Disaster. Have a listen to their freely downloadable track oh my god.
To replace them, here are some musical tasties that I predict will go viral next (who wants to give me a nickel?):
1. Diana Pops, who has the kind of voice you want to curl up and sleep in. Go see what I mean with her song Mary Janes.
