"Ode to New York" by Byron Rufus Newton (poetry reading)
Sometimes called "Owed to New York". Byron wrote this satirical poem when he was a reporter of the New York Herald in 1906.

The Dodos performed for Googlers in Mountain View, Ca on April 7, 2011 from their album No Color.

Multi-instrumentalists Meric Long and Logan Kroeber build their best songs around percussion to startling effect: "Good" and "Don't Try and Hide It," from the new No Color, pound and clatter with such precision and clarity, the whomp of the drums mi
