The Learning Curve: Music To Contemplate This Week

1/29/2009 10:54am EST
New Years Day
(The Learning Curve) There's literally something for everyone's palette. This week is a journey. Hit the dance floor with SS Nova and Blaqk Audio, whip out the air guitar with Lynam, jump in the mosh pit with Demon Hunter and then start singing along with New Years Day.

Enjoy my friends.

1.) SS Nova - Rock/Electronic
