Every now and then, the stars align when someone sends me their music and asks for a plug. Mike Ferraro sent a seemingly innocuous e-mail, then mentioned he was friends with Ned (aka "No Love For"), and had recorded a cover of Guided By Voices' "Awful Bliss" (mp3 link). My curiosity was aroused, then he said that the wonderful net label (disguised as a blog) A Bunch of Beatniks had released one of his EP's. That put him to the top of my ever-growing "to-listen" pile. Ferraro's minimal guitar-pop is fueled by his honest lyricism, and the music breathed some fresh air into my afternoon.
