Fitz and the Tantrums - Live in the Carter Mountain Music Lounge

Like a male Amy Winehouse, Fitz taps into the roots of R&B -- Motown, Stax, and Philly soul. There was some booty-shaking in the Lounge for this one, and at the end of the session, a news flash about a return appearance by the band for our Winter Warmth show, plus the debut of a slightly sad holiday tune about Santa.

SONGS: Breakin' The Chains Of Love, L.O.V., MoneyGrabber, Santa Stole My Lady

34:37 minutes KT Tunstall

KT's back with a zesty new collection of songs called Tiger Suit, borne out of a dramatic crisis of confidence which led to a reinvigoration of her musical mojo. As always, she fires up her digital "wee bastard" to accompany herself -- and she reveals what she wore for Halloween this year, too.

SONGS: Uummannaq Song, (Still A) Weirdo, Suddenly I See, Fade Like A Shadow

24:14 minutes The Weepies

Deb Talan and Steve Tannen are a married couple who make music together as The Weepies -- their newest album is Be My Thrill. They talk about spiders and snakes in their California house, letting the Obama campaign use one of their songs, and the ups and downs of being a couple in a band.

28:16 minutes J.P. Chrissie and the Fairground Boys'

Chrissie Hynde of the Pretenders and Welsh singer/songwriter JP Jones had a passionate romance which didn't quite work out, but they took a trip to Cuba on a whim, formed a band, and chronicled their affair in every song of their album, called Fidelity! They play three new songs, talk about creating the music, the future of the Pretenders, and Chrissie even gets in a nice vegetartian rant.

SONGS: If You Let Me, Leave Me If You Must, Perfect Lover

28:41 minutes Guster

These guys are always loose and unpredictable, but since they had just regrouped this very morning to begin a radio tour, there was extra mayhem in the Lounge -- some shakey lyrics, a botched song ending, and a story about their weekend expedition to Bainbridge Island for cycling and sushi.

SONGS: Do You Love Me, Satellite, That's No Way To Get To Heaven, Amsterdam
