FTB podcast #81 is a grab-bag of mostly new Americana releases, with a few from acts who I saw last weekend at the Pickathon Festival near Portland.   We got new music from THESE UNITED STATES,  MANDA MOSHER and CALAFIA. The full playlist is posted below.  Check the artist's websites and order their CD's or downloads and tell 'em you heard the songs on the FTB podcast.  Please email me with any questions or suggestions for the podcasts.


Here's the iTunes link to subscribe to the FTB podcasts.  Here's the direct link to listen now!
