L.A. band The Like are cute as hell and gifted in the way of the dreamy pop hook.
Portland's Motel Gallery has an impressive roster of artists. A fave from the list is Megan Whitmarsh, whose knitted, intergalactic worlds featuring yetis, crystals, boomboxes, and Flying Vs are pure gold.

Uffie, part of the Ed Banger heat pack, spits brat-tastic electro-rap over squiddly finger snaps on her recent "Pop The Glock" and "Hot Chick" 12"s. Stay out of her way -or don't- as she's already let us know that she's "Ready to Uff". Dangerous.
