Lisa Brockmeier's Summer Soundtrack Contest submission, "Travel Around the World This Summer," features tracks from all manner of continents. I'm especially thrilled that she found some music by the Boban Marcovic Orkestar, the great Balkan brass band responsible for much of the ridiculously good music in "Underground" and other films by Emir Kusturica.

2. "Orgasmatron," Albert Kuvezin Yat-Kha
"Man's Word," Natacha Atlas
4. "Don Quijote Marijuana," Brujeria
