This week on Unlocked, The Key got the scoop on Modern Baseball‘s new LP You’re Gonna Miss It All.  Check out Mark Snitzer’s review here, watch the local pop / punk band perform deep cut “It’s Cold Out Here” and then hang out with the boys in an in-depth profile while listening to “Broken Cash Machine,” which you can download for free below.

World Cafe and host David Dye are making February a little more exciting by releasing twenty free downloads, availble only until the 28th.  This week, get ten tracks from Dr. Dog, Little Comets, Pet Shop Boys, Jason Isbell, Neko Case and more, recorded exclusively for the World Cafe.

After releasing “Cougars” last month, South Philly rapper El Malito is back with a few remixes of the single.  Bringing in friends to put their own spin on the song, El Malito’s ode to older women gets some Cumbia and dance club tweaks in the new versions.  Stream and download them below.

This week’s Folkadelphia session featured Irish singer-songwriter Declan O’Rourke.  The Dublin based musician released an album called Mag Pai Zai last year, which showcased his undeniable talent for crafting intriguing “story songs.”  Check out his work below.

Yesterday was Valentine’s Day, and Kate Faust took advantage of the holiday to release a great cover of 50s doo wop track “I Only Have Eyes For You.”  Her version, titled “Eyes 4 U,” puts an electronica spin on the classic Flamingos song.  Stream and download it below.
