HEARTS OF ANIMALS (Houston) Girlish desperation meets soul, hope and wisdom for sweetly soothing music. Features Mlee on guitar, drum machine, xylophone, vox and saxophone. http://www.myspace.com/heartsofanimals
LINDSEY SIMARD (Houston) Simple and charming tunes overflow with wit, irony and a sentimentality that would make Hulk Hogan smile.
