Dave Fischoff - The Crawl (buy it)
Chicago librarian and creepy folk noisemaker Dave Fischoff returns after a five-year hiatus to spring more atmosphere, found sound and insidious melody on the willing. And just where are the cover folks crawling to? City life getting to you, Dave?
MP3: Dave Fischoff - Ghost of an Afternoon
Simon Joyner - Skeleton Blues (buy it)
AllMusic sez: early Dylan meets Television at a Velvet Underground show! If it's an eightieth as good as all that, the umpteenth Joyner record and the first that really rocks is worth picking up.
MP3: Simon Joyner - Medicine Blues
Mirah - Joyride (remixes) (buy it)
It's no J to Tha L-O!: The Remixes but we all gotta strive for something.
MP3: Mirah - The Light (Hooliganship Remix)
Tom Waits - Orphans (buy it)
Like a giant loogie aimed straight for your heart.
MP3: Tom Waits - Bottom of the World
