This album is a compilation of tracks from new, unsigned & independent artists featured at UARADIO.NET. Over 200 bands and independent performers from the UARADIO.NET network submitted tracks for this album. The compilation contains mainly pop tracks, some with a hit of rock, jazz or soul but most are melodic quality pop songs.

Hopefully we will see more "The Best Of..." compilations shortly - they are a great way to discover new & independent music to listen to.
Even as mega-banks topple, Juan Enriquez says the big reboot is yet to come. But don't look for it on your ballot -- or in the stock exchange. It'll come from science labs, and it promises keener bodies and minds. Our kids are going to be ... different.
Dynamoe is quite a unique electronica band from Denmark. They've met almost by accident in 1997, when both Giovanni Campagna and Dennis Lee were signed by the same label. After a long chat, they've discovered they have so many ideas in common that working together was almost a given... "Coming Home" is their second album.
Vocalist, pianist, guitarist, songwriter, engineer, producer and arranger - Allison Crowe is all the above. She lives & creates in Canada, but tours steadily, earning a reputation for exciting live shows that stir together her original songs with much-loved interpretations in an organic blend of rock, jazz, folk, Broadway, gospel and soul.
Grace Valhalla is a young, fresh female French DJ & composer. To date, she's released four albums - "psychopathethic" is her first one. Out of all four, "psychopathethic" is the most influenced by rock music. The second album entitled "PEAK~" is definitely more on the electronic side, while the third, "Wire", is a mix between the first two. Her newest album, "summerCamp", has more of a pop feel to it and is the most upbeat and positive.
This album is a compilation of tracks from new, unsigned & independent artists featured at UARADIO.NET. It's also the first (and hopefully one of many to come) legally distributed over P2P network under Creative Commons license. Over 500 bands showing their work on UARADIO.NET submitted tracks for this album. The compilation contains only rock tracks but in all shades of rock - some are more country, some more pop, some even have a bit of electronica feel to it. The variety is definitely there!
The Future of Ideas is the most important work yet written about the grave threat posed to innovation and creativity in America and throughout the world. Lawrence Lessig documents the rapid and largely undebated expansion of government-granted monopolies over broad swatches of the knowledge our society relies on, and compares this with the role common access to knowledge has always played in America's vibrant culture and economy.
