Welcome to another edition of Music Emissions’ podcast of the week. This week we will concentrate on lost treasures and guilty pleasures. Rather than admit some of these are my favorites, I think we’ll have some friends and family do that.

Having enjoyed a bit of success working with Black Eyed Peas, Esthero‘s 1998 release “Breathe From Another” will never be forgotten about. Blending lounge jazz, trip hop and rock, here is Esthero featuring Shug, Messah and Dj Grouch with the self-titled track “Breathe From Another”.
Though their self-titled release was not the only, the talent was evident here more than ever. Here is Missouri’s own Stir, with “One Angel”.
Though they literally went commercial when Cadillac featured this feverish Aggro Rock track in an advertisement, H.U.M. never really garnered the attention they deserved. Here is H.U.M. with “Stars”.
Another artist with literal commercial success, but never more than a splash in the independent music industry, Lyrics Born is one of my best kept secrets. Off the terrific release “Later That Day”, here is Lyrics Born with “Callin’ Out”
Having only recorded one album, this Houston, TX based electronic pop duo’s debut release “Boomtown” was a terrific effort. From 1986, here is David & David with “Aint So Easy”
After a tragic car accident involving lead singer Lynn Strait in December of 1998, the closest these guys ever got to mainstream was the tribute album made to benefit Strait’s son named “Strait Up”. A very unique blend of hard rock and blues, here’s Snot with “Get Some”.
See ya next week…
