October 26, 2009 Music Go Music's "Light of Love" incorporates girl-group harmonies, airy synths and slow-then-fast pacing reminiscent of '70s rock radio. It's an earworm of a track worthy of ABBA, given its unabashed pop pretensions and simple, universal story line: Lonely, down-in-the-dumps girl meets dreamy boy, girl hems and haws but eventually falls under his spell, true love comes speeding around the corner and knocks her onto her derriere.

May 22, 2008 Summer road trips are a time for both celebration and meditation. There's an urgent need to be free and explore, while also blocking out the rest of the world and getting lost in wistful daydreams. For Carrie Brownstein, former guitarist for Sleater-Kinney and host of NPR's Monitor Mix blog, nothing captures those moments better than these five songs.
