You're going to love this: some terrific African music on this blog. (link to "Awesome Tapes From Africa", via Metafilter)
There's funky guitar rock in there (African guitar rock sounds SO much fresher than anything happening in the West at the moment) as well as hip-hop, so that should make everyone happy.
There really is just too much 'pod goodness on that blog, so if you guys dig up something really cool, share it with everyone in the commentspace. (And if you can afford to buy any of these albums or MP3s, please do.)
I just recently noticed the new Free Napster - no registration and no sign-ins! Simply search for a band or a song and press play. (Looks like they have even eliminated the commercials?!)
As a demo, how about this weepie? Those of you without a girlfriend (or a boyfriend - or both?) are allowed to cry into your pillow.
