Hey, thought I would join in the action here.

I have been a big fan of Paste Magazine for nearly 2 years now. Basically you get a CD every month, online, with about 20 songs from various bands that you would probably never hear on local radio. Some really good music for the most part. The last one Number 57 was especially good.

I think I'll check Paste out.  Two questions:

1.  Are the bands balanced between male and female?  Most compilations tend to be heavily male, unless it's a compilation of 20 Celebrated Female Artists of the 60s, for example.

2.  Are the songs from different time periods or contemporary?

I took a quick look at some of the play lists from Paste and there is a good representation of female singers. Can't really tell about the bands. The music for the most part is contemporary and current bands. Certainly not the kind of stuff you hear on local radio, more like a college station playlist. Whoever is making the selections has a good ear. Paste was having some serious financial problems but they have gotten past that I think. It is a bargain for $20 IMO.

I'm hooked on Them Crooked Vultures http://themcrookedvultures.com/, the self titled album from a new super group.

Josh Homme  - lead guitar and vocals (Queens of the Stone Age)
Dave Grohl - drums and vocals (Nirvana and Foo Fighters)
John Paul Jones - bass and other instruments (Led Zeppelin)

Black Angels - Passover.  Nicely modern fuzzy-guitar blues-influenced rock.
