Magical Madjo

Madjo is a French-Senegalese singer with a wonderful, spirited voice. There’s virtually no info on her on the net, so this entry will have to be brief. She put out her first and only CD, Trapdoor in 2010.and it’s a dandy. The songs are mostly in English, but that doesn’t really matter—her joyful singing transcends language. Her music is mainly catchy pop and will put a smile on your face.

Night of the Living Dead

The Dead Texan is a duo comprised of Adam Wiltzie and Christina Vantzou. Wlitzie is better known for his work with the ambient group Stars of the Lid and Vantzou is avideo artist. There music sounds like it would be perfect for a soundtrack of a science fiction movie. So far, they only have one cd out, 2004’s self-titled release, however they have a bunch of very cool videos on youtube.
