Song of the Week
La Strange
I'm addicted to some thoughts
I survived Blue Monday and received some nice new tunes, so I am ready to bring you a new programme. Quite a few bands and solo musicians joined TalentCast last week, but only two of those bands (a pop rock band from Florida and a 5-piece alternative rock band from New Zealand) sent us their music.

Sometimes the last song I play doesn't really fit between the other songs, but is still interesting to play. Today's last track is like that. It's a track by an experimental music project from Warsaw, Poland. I start the programme with one of the TalentCast newcomers.
