From the 2012 album, Bang Bang Boom Boom.  For some reason, this LP was first released in Europe and then released in the U.S. in 2013.  The U.S. release has a bonus live cover of Etta James’ “I’d Rather Go Blind” with Jeff Beck.

(June 28, 2015): Correatown – Everything, All At Once

From the 2012 album, Pleiades.  Angela Correa somehow got the nickname Correatown at some point and that became the name for this band (Correa, Rob Poynter, Mike Corwin, & Jenni Tarma).  Correa has a captivating voice.  It seems that without intending to write soundtrack, many will have heard her as just that in a number of U.S. network series.

(June 25, 2015): Peaches – You Love It (feat. Joan Jett)

From the 2006 album, Impeach My Bush.  Ever the provocateur, Merrill Nisker is one of the best at music full of explicit lyrics, double entendres, and gender politics.  Here she enlists Joan Jett to belt it out.
