Modcast #105: I Wanna Be A Mod

What a week. If you're a financier you've been on a wild ride. And if you're not, well you've probably been watching it all from the comfort of your couch -- if you still have one.

Suddenly there is lots of cool new music flooding the markets, the scene is topsy turvy with recent and still to come releases. Next week alone will see a brand new album from Oasis, as well as new mod jazz outfit Trio Valore Inc. And you are going to your first little taste of both on this week's modcast. Also on tap this week is new stuff from Raphael Saadiq, the Private Jets, Brazillian sensation Ari Borger, and Secret Beauty Cream. So as not to overdose on the new drugs, I dug through the suave music vault and have dusted off some old faves from the likes of The Unclaimed and the Goldstars. You can check out some cool bonus videos on the modcast homepage at from Ari Borger and Trio Valore.

No doubt, the wildness isn't over. So, buckleup kids because I'm going to take you on your own wild ride right now.

Questions? Requests? Are you in a mod band? Were you in a band a way back when? Spread the love and send me some MP3s and I'll work them into a future show. E-mail me at
