The Rumble Strips – Girls and Weather (ska)
Influenced by third-wave punk ska, but with more than just the relentless two-step beat. This group throws a good bit of horn-driven rock into the mix.

Clan 537 – Habia Una Vez: La Caperucita (Reggaeton)
Solid Reggaeton, which for the uninitiated is the relatively new and immensely catchy Latin rap-pop dance craze. Roll down the windows and play loud.
