TOW on 6 Music - Glass Cake and Daughter

Every week TOW plays two songs for the brilliant Tom Robinson on his BBC 6 Music Introducing show... here are our picks from the last two shows:

Glass Cake - Endless Summer:
Michelle Shofet is a Californian who makes dreamy, clever, bedroom pop - there's also a fantastic cover of Madonna's Like A Prayer. It's all a free download at her Bandcamp too - gotta love that...

Daughter - Tomorrow:
Thanks (as always) to the brilliant Wears The Trousers blog for tipping TOW onto Elena Tonra, or Daughter, as she is now known. She's been picked to play HMV's Next Big Thing in a few weeks which makes us think there's still hope! HMV have picked someone with a beautiful voice, a fine ear for melody and head for lyrics, bring on more Daughter. Head to her myspace page and you'll see how you can download a free EP.
