Jonny Greenwood, Sufjan Stevens, Sigur Ros

Moon Trills

Radiohead guitarist Jonny Greenwood wrote and recorded this soundtrack to the experimental documentary, Bodysong -- a stunning exploration of what it means to be human, from birth to death.

Ba Ba

This 3-song EP was recorded for a dance performance at the Brooklyn Academy of Music.


Sufjan Stevens, a singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist from Michigan, has been compared to Elliott Smith and Nick Drake with warm, delicate melodies. His previous album, Greetings From Michigan, the Great Lakes State was featured on All Songs Considered as one of the best albums of 2003.

Homeless Child (feat. Ben Harper)

Charlie Musselwhite got his start in the so-called "white blues" movement of the late '60s, and is now considered one of the greatest living blues harmonica players.

Prisoner Of

Charlemagne is otherwise known as Carl Johns. He wrote the songs, played all the instruments and recorded this collection of mostly pop and folk-rock tunes at a home studio in Wisconsin.

Open the World

Leslie Phillips was a gospel singer before switching to her childhood nickname, Sam and took on a whole new sound reminiscent of '60s psychedelic folk/pop.
