Co-Editor: Lise (Minneapolis, MN)
Lise enjoys a wide range of musical genres but does have a weak spot for female indie artists and glockenspiels, as well as anything that can be considered a mix between the Beatles and Fleet Foxes. Also, as an owner of a baritone uke and a bright green soprano ukulele, chances are uke songs will be thrown in the mix.

Contributor: Keith (London, UK)
Keith set off to seek his fortune in London 4 years ago, but in Hackney he found that the streets were in fact paved with concrete and dog poo, instead of the gold he had heard so much about. Undeterred by this setback, Keith enjoys his East London life, and spends his time listening to a wide range of music, from folksy indie loveliness to filthy stomping electro, the only real exceptions are R&B, which, like cheese, make him nauseous.
