(Fabienne DelSol - when you thought music got boring, she comes along)

When I started this nightly feature, it was completely in my head to play things that were of a certain vintage that hadn't been heard in a long time, if ever. I more or less drew the line at the new decade, believing there are enough avenues and opportunities to make new discoveries and to hear new acts without my help. But then I thought, who was I to exclude artists who were incredible. If anything, new artists on the scene need more help getting their work across than ones who have been there, done that, and got the t-shirt. These are the new ones going for the long haul and they need every bit of support we can give them, and they need to be discovered and heard by as many people as possible.

With that said, we're expanding our coverage to include everything, no matter how old or new - the one rule of thumb is that it's good and not mainstream.

So tonight I've started with an artist I first discovered on MySpace, Fabienne DelSol. As much as people like to rag on social networks as excuses for navel-gazing, they can serve a very useful purpose. And MySpace has been excellent in exposing the world to bands and artists in a matter of days where it used to take months, if not years to accomplish. Her track "And I have Learnt To Dream", the b-side of her single "I'm Gonna Get Me A Rat" is one of the most haunting and beautiful songs I have heard in years - with excellent production and part of a very rich cataloge of work, not only as a solo artist but with her backup band The Bristols.

Check this track out - and I urge you to visit one of her many sites. In addition to MySpace, she has a Facebook page and Damaged Goods, her record company site as well. It is completely worth it.

It's discoveries like this that let me know we're not doing nearly as bad musically as we think.

And that's a big relief.
