Three "Z"-themed tracks for your listening enjoyment...
Zero 7 - "Pop Art Blue"

(She just chimed in and said I could call it "ethereal pop.") So here's the hauntingly beautiful, ethereal pop group, Zero 7.
Stornoway - "Zorbing'
An alternative indie-folk band from Oxford. Their sound somehow reminds me of times long forgotten while being strangely modern. Well worth a listen.
The Cab - "Zzzzz"
An alternative rock band from Los Vegas, The Alternative Press called The Cab, "The Band You Need To Know," back in 2008 when the group released their album, Whisper War.
A quick note:
We jumped in on the Musical Alphabet with the letter "i." I'll wrap around and begin working through the beginning of the alphabet on Monday. After that? We'll see. :)
