    Kaki King’s not on many best of 2010 lists, so good to see someone else is highlighting her music, several terrific songs on her 2010 album ( :
    A few artists I don’t know here, hope you found some new music to listen to on my top 100 songs list.

    By the way, I added your link to today’s What are other people blogging about? So maybe some traffic will come your way ( :
