Brazilian Girls - Sweatshop
Megapuss - Adam & Steve
Megapuss - Theme from Hollywood

Goldfrapp - Winter Wonderland (for some reason the fact that this song was called "Winter Wonderland" didn't deter me from accidentally playing a Christmas song at the end of February)
Here We Go Magic - Only Pieces
Broadcast - Come On Let's Go
Pinback - Penelope
Low - In the Drugs
Juana Molina - La Verdad
Yo La Tengo - Damage
Arcade Fire - Black Wave/Bad Vibrations

My Brightest Diamond - Golden Star
The Fiery Furnaces - Blueberry Boat
Hanne Hukkelberg - The North Wind
Gospel Claws - God Keeps Me Alive
Other Lives - Paper Cities
YACHT - Hot Dog

Juana Molina was incredible. More later. A real review on the WTBU blog, perhaps!
