Olin & the Moon - Open Air California

Music today often feels like it’s all about image; the look of a band or how "professional" the album sounds have become dominating priorities when recording and marketing an artist. To hear someone like Olin and the Moon, whose music and lyrics are grounded in earnestly, is a stimulating change of sonic scenery and it sounds brilliant.

Todays tune is "Open Air California" with Olin and the Moon

Foo Fighters - The Pretender

The 3:rd band from W.T.A.I is Foo Fighters, one of the big headliners.
Foo Fighters is an American alternative rock band formed by singer/guitarist Dave Grohl in 1995.
Grohl formed the group as a one-man project after the dissolution of his previous band Nirvana in 1994.
Prior to the release of Foo Fighters in 1995, Grohl drafted Nate Mendel (bass), William Goldsmith (drums), and Pat Smear (guitar) to complete the group.
Goldsmith and Smear left after the recording of the group's second album The Colour and the Shape (1997).
They were replaced by Taylor Hawkins and Franz Stahl, respectively, although Stahl left prior to the recording of the group's third album, There Is Nothing Left to Lose (1999).
Chris Shiflett joined as the band's second guitarist after the completion of There is Nothing Left to Lose.
The band released its fourth album One by One in 2002.
The group followed that release with the two-disc In Your Honor (2005), which was split between acoustic songs and harder-rocking material. Foo Fighters released its sixth album Echoes, Silence, Patience & Grace in 2007.
Over the course of the band's career, three of its albums have won Grammy Awards for Best Rock Album, and all six have been nominated for Grammys.
Todays tune is the first single and video from the album Echoes, Silence, Patience & Grace.

Mando Diao - Long Before Rock'N Roll

Mando Diao is a garage rock band from Borlänge, Sweden.
The 2:nd one of Artists at W.T.A.I

The roots of Mando Diao date back to 1995 when Björn Dixgård and the former Mando Diao-member Daniel Haglund were in a band called Butler. Band members came and went and four years later the rest of the current line-up decided to take that project more seriously. Björn Dixgård and Gustaf Norén locked themselves up in a summer house and spent 14 months writing songs. They claim the Beatles as their original source of inspiration. Actually, Gustaf joined after he and Björn had talked all night about them. The two renamed their band Mando Diao. According to the band, the name has no particular meaning, and it appeared to band member Björn Dixgård in a dream.

The Byrds - Eight Miles High

The Byrds (formed in Los Angeles, California, in 1964) were an American rock band.
The Byrds were popular and influential through the latter part of the 1960s and early 1970s. Critic Richie Unterberger declares The Byrds' most enduring contribution was "melding the innovations and energy of the British Invasion with the best lyrical and musical elements of contemporary folk music," but they also helped forge such subgenres as folk rock, space rock, raga rock, psychedelic rock, jangle pop, and –- on their 1968 album Sweetheart of the Rodeo –- country rock. After several line-up changes (with lead singer/guitarist Roger McGuinn as the only consistent member), they broke up in 1973.
Some of their trademark songs include pop covers of Bob Dylan's "Mr. Tambourine Man" and Pete Seeger’s "Turn! Turn! Turn!", and the originals "I’ll Feel a Whole Lot Better", and "Eight Miles High".
They were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and several band members have launched successful solo careers after leaving the group. In 2004, Rolling Stone Magazine ranked them #45 on their list of the 100 Greatest Artists of All Time.
Todays tune is Eight Miles High.
