LISTEN: The Big Beat 'cast 52

As TBB's go, I'm pretty proud of this one.  It's got a good mix of new artists & songs coupled with the return of some pretty big players: SIGUR ROS, THE FLAMING LIPS, BECK and LIARS.  More new music from BEACH HOUSE, ALABAMA SHAKES, PAUL WELLER, HERE WE GO MAGIC and BAD VEINS.  Recent discoveries that I'm excited about: TAFFY, VIRGINIA WING, ODONIS ODONIS, PUBLIC SERVICE BROADCASTING, ISLET, and ARTHUR BEATRICE.  And that new record from ALLO DARLIN' is nothing if not swoonworthy.
