Rodolfo recommends (again)

This time Peruvian reader Rodolfo hasn't written a post, but instead he has sent me a nice long list of artists that he thinks I should check out. And why shouldn't I give them a listen, because so far I've liked most of the stuff he has recommended?

Rick Witter used to be the singer in Shed Seven (I have to admit that I never really liked them) and his new band is called Rick Witter and The Dukes. The music is pretty good, though it is rather straightforward indie rock.

+ Sky Falls Down

London band The Free French lists Scritti Politti among their influences and I definitely get sweet memories of that (very fine) 80's band when I listen to Ghost Writer. Nice one!

I've already mentioned Manchester band kni9hts a few times before, but since this is such a great (fantastic according to Rodolfo) band I sure don't mind mentioning them again. This is music for the fans of Doves, Puressence etc.
+ Coastal
+ Jolan District

I guess most people are already familiar with She Wants Revenge? A so- so mix of Tear Your Apart is available at Myspace.
+ Tear Your Apart (Hotel Persona Remix)

Margot and the Nuclear So and So's has the weirdest name, but nothing weird about the music. Talking In Code is a wonderful song with a nice acoustic feel. I've streamed a few other songs by the band and I definitely should get my hands on the album.

A few other (some of them very interesting) bands were on his list, but since none of them offer any free downloads, they won't be mentioned here!!

hi I came across your site and I really appreciate your work. I’m fond of music and just wanted to say that you provide people with very useful information. By the way my new passion is PinkPink music I'm Not Dead mp3 .Tell me what you think.

As Rhodri from 'Free French' is actually IN the group Scritti Politti these days, that makes sense!

Margot and the Nuclear So and So's are a great band. I'm loving Skeleton Key at the moment.

If you haven't already bought the Margot album you need to - NOW. You don't know what you're missing.
