Angela McCluskey

Hafdís Huld
3. Diamonds On My Belly 
4. Sumri Hallar 

Hafdís is an Icelandic singer songwriter and ex Gus Gus member featured in Reyka Vodka commercials (youtube it). Here we have an ode to piercings and a folk song about the end of summer. Íslanders seem compelled to cover their traditional tunes (Björk with Vökuró on Medulla).

Brazilian Girls

6. Don't Stop 

The Brazilian Girls is one hot girl from Rome via Munich and Nice and three white guys from NY.

7. Dancing Behind My Eyelids

Múm lost the other squeaky voice but gained Hildur Ingveldardóttir Guðnadóttir, the hardest-working cellist in Iceland with her own moody solo recordings (Lost in Hildurness) to boot.

Instituto Mexicano Del Sonido (Mexican Institute of Sound)
1. Ok! 
2. Mirando a las muchachas 

Is Mexican DJ, Producer and EMI Mexico exec Camilo Lara's project. Samples of old-timey Mexican music with modern beats and scratches. I can't get the "¿Estan listos? ¡Okay!" out of my head.

3. Gimme The Power 
4. Here Comes The Mayo 

Straight-ahead rock hip-hop Latin Grammy winners from Mexico City. "Here Comes The Mayo" was heard in "Y tú mamá también" as Julio and Tenoche drove around the city. "Do you smell bread?"

Two brothers calling themselves Residente and Visitante and their sister PG-13 make up this Puerto Rican hip-hop reggaeton group. Overheard on the streets of Mexico City. They're also Latin Grammy winners.
