PS Thanks to Graham Holland for posing for the picture too :)A frantic week again with yesterday spent in London, loads of work pressure and Podcrawl to plan for as well as hosting the AMPed show for Monday.Some great and varied music again this week with quite a few tracks from New York and others from Los Angeles, Ontario, London and Buenos Aires.It seems to be spring around The Barn. Quite a few frogs have been making their way to the pond today (right), with just one thing on their mind and I’d say you can see it in their eye. My Machine – Queen V (New York, NY)From the album Death or Glory. My Machine, is an unrelenting, speeding ride, is about being "a proud sexual woman in the face of all the guilt and shame women are supposed to feel." She explains, "It felt good to vent my frustrations with people who are afraid or intimidated by my Catherine The Great size appetite for passion and intensity." V makes her case for wanting to "just get down to it," with her deep, heavy breaths layered over Tom Morello’s ferocious guitar riffs."www.queenv.comwww.myspace.com/queenv8 O’Clock Train – 46 Bliss (New York, NY)The voluptuous alto voice of Clare Veniot gives way to a satiny upper register that feels timeless in its simplicity, providing a perfect balance to the technological mastery of vocalist, programmer and keyboardist David Cooper and electronic drummer Jack Freudenheim, creator of ambient music software Sounder.46bliss, perhaps best known for their song The Way You Are featured on the show Veronica Mars and CSI-NY, and In A Long Time, one of the most played songs in podcasting, are releasing a 2-CD set of 46bliss tracks reworked by remixers from 6 countries.
