They are quite big at home in Sweden; their music is like no other, mixing together metal, jazz, gypsy folk, swing, rock and half a dozen other genres; and they are also one of the most popular artists on jamendo.

This week's featured artist is Diablo Swing Orchestra. We're all the more thrilled to see the response their music is receiving on jamendo, ever since they joined us last summer, as their out-of-this-world, beyond all possible categorization music matches exactly what this site is all about: discovery and diversity.

Arthur Pope is a newcomer on jamendo. His album "From Thorns to Roses" was uploaded only a week ago.

An American songwriter from St Louis, Pope's sound is acoustic and bare, but his songs are heartfelt and emotional. And with a name like his, it won't come as a surprise that he he adds a christian element to his lyrics (sorry, couldn't resist the pun).

Welcome Arthur!

Yesterday, the CC-themed blog The Creative Uncommons published a long interview of our very own Chief of music, Patrick Haour. Now, we're not sure we really qualify as the "orange world eater" the site calls jamendo, but it's always nice to get some recognition in the free music world, so thank you TCUC!

Go ahead and read it, it's right here

Professor Kliq, aka Mike, a young hip electronic music producer from Chicago, has been a favorite on jamendo for awhile. The reason we're featuring him this week is because he entirely re-uploaded his stack of available tracks on jamendo.

The good news is there's now more Professor Kliq available for free download than ever, now neatly wrapped up in two soberly titled albums: "Community Service" and "Community Service II". From what we understand, the former is some kind of a "best of", the latter a B-sides and rarities collection. 

And he's still one of the best electro artists on jamendo, so enjoy!
