XLR8R this week

Mary Anne Hobbs
Recorded live on January 29 in San Francisco, this mix is the first-ever podcast that the Britain-based DJ, journalist, and Radio1 host Mary Anne Hobbs has ever made.

Mi Ami
Mi Ami are a three-pronged assault from San Francisco. Ex-Black Eyes members Daniel Martin-McCormick and Jacob Long, along with explosive drummer Damon Palermo, won't stand for anything less than a full-bodied sonic experience and can't understand why anyone else would either. As they sip cocktails in Chinatown, they talk about physicality, volume and being a "disco" band.

Artists to Watch: Toy Selectah
It’s odd to tout the driving force behind Control Machete, one of Mexico’s biggest hip-hop groups ever, as an up-and-coming artist, but Toy Selectah (a.k.a. Toy Hernandez) has been championing a new-school take on classic cumbia colombiana.

Inbox: Abe Vigoda
Sure, we're always curious to know about an artist's upcoming release, most recent tour, or arsenal of analog gear, but XLR8R's also got a curiosity for quirk. This week, L.A. art-punkers Abe Vigoda talk about flashfloods, digital cameras, and prized t-shirts.

Top 10: P.O.S., Mr. Oizo, Glass Candy
Each week, XLR8R picks its favorite 10 albums, compilations, singles, and downloads of the moment and takes a few minutes to tell you about each of them. This time, we check out the new album from punk-rock hip-hopper P.O.S., get rowdy with the latest effort from Mr. Oizo, soak in some Glass Candy b-sides, and much more.
