Bob Boilen http://knba.org en Diane Coffee, 'All The Young Girls' http://knba.org/post/diane-coffee-all-young-girls Diane Coffee is the solo project of <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shaun_Fleming" target="_blank">Shaun Fleming</a>, a musician who has been a child voice actor for Disney and the drummer in Foxygen with his friends Jonathan Rado and Sam France. Under the name Diane Coffee, Shaun Fleming is also an outrageously dolled up performer. "All The Young Girls" is from the band's 2013 album <em>My Friend Fish. </em><p>As for the video, which I love; the tale begins with a clay couple in love and literally goes up in flames.

He's known as the guitar player for one of America's best bands, Wilco. His crazy performances, filled with static shrieking and string bending, have led fans to the other side of music. It's a style that interweaves jazz, progressive rock and noise.<p>Nels Cline started doing all of this long before joining Wilco, and continues it these days with his own project, The Nels Cline Singers, a group that actually has no singers.

Eternal Summers make vibrant music. But as this video for "A Burial" unfolds, a darker side of this Roanoke, Va. band's song emerges.

I started the puzzler because I noticed that so often I could tell something about the music a person was playing by the shoes I saw them wearing.
