Teri Gender Bender of Le Butcherettes
It's been a week of bump and grind here at MP3.com, home of free songs from the [mp3com-artist]M Machine[/mp3com-artist], [mp3com-artist]Le Butcherettes[/mp3com-artist] and F Stokes, all on our favorites list! Just yesterday, we dropped a new tune on you in our "pop" category called "Trafalgar," from the mysterious band known as the M Machine. "'Trafalgar' bumps hard with a relentless bass line and heavyweight synths," Phil told us, "destined for setting off a maelstrom of cheers and glow sticks at the height of a DJ set."

Stokes said in a recent YRB Magazine interview. "I am willing at any moment to drop everything I have, absolutely, right now - I don't care about what girl I'm with, I don't care where I stay, I don't care about what's in my pocket - to join a tour that I'm not paid for. Right now, period." That's the kind of passion that Anngie heard in one of our favorite R&B tracks from this past week, Stokes' "My Simple," a song that pays tribute to "the decidedly unglamorous life of living in a small town and living a wholesome life."

"Le Butcherettes combine the lyrical power (of [mp3com-artist]Patti Smith[/mp3com-artist], [mp3com-artist]Bikini Kill[/mp3com-artist] and [mp3com-artist]Karen-O[/mp3com-artist])," I said in my post, "with a fierce rhythmic pulse that is for all the world commensurate with what the Dead Weather have been turning out."
