 Lorraine - When I Return To The World
[umm...so this one isn't on youtube anymore. :( So umm...here's the video for 'Transatlantic Flight', which is 2 years old and not quite as good but it apparently will have to do.]
 Parralox - We Believe In Electric Love
[grrr, another one not there...so here's a live version of the almost as good 'I Fell In Love With A Drum Machine' instead - what a title! - instead]
 Alphabeat - Boyfriend
[hands fucking down]
Albums to come.
