My tastes run the gamut from classic southern soul to modern alternative rock/punk. I am also a big fan of 'world music', especially Rai.
In the last few months I have adding a lot of alt country and folk to my CD collection. This includes work by Carolyn Mark, Neko Case and Her Boyfriends, Giant Sands, Wilco, Robbie Fulks, Stacey Earle and the Be Good Tanyas.
I have included links to the websites of some of my current favourites/labels (along with a link to a page about Rai music).
