Fresh Air…new songs for your ears

November 20, 2009

What a month. Fresh Air has drawn to a close and I’m finding it hard to keep up my shopping list of new tracks I’ve heard over the month.  Here’s a list of most of the picks (roughly in order of how they were played from oldest to newest) with links to where you can find them online.

The link for the Artist will either go to their myspace, their own official site or a wikipedia page if they are older artists.  The link for the song will go to a youTube or streamed blog if I can find one…. Leave a comment if you’ve more info on any of them or you know where a missing link can be found

If you want to buy any of the above try Road Records (great delivery service in Ireland and great at sourcing things if they don’t have it in stock) or City Discs or if you need a quick fix lots (even the old ones) are on iTunes. Most artist sites have buying info on them too.
