Have you heard Express and Company? They're a traditional band for modern ears, leaning on the soulful voice of Dylan Ireland and the feisty fiddle playing of Melissa Payne. The band received this weeks most on-line votes placing them just outside the top 10 with their d├ębut "Carry Me Along."

Vampire Weekend sneak onto the chart with a song from their new album "Modern Vampires of the City." Check out the wailing penny whistles and Celtic flutes at the end of "Unbelievers."

We should also give props to the twins Quin. Tegan and Sara stay at number one for the second week with their track "I Was A Fool."

Check out this great duet featuring two of this weeks Top 20 artists, Donovan Woods & Meredith Shaw. Here, they're performing the Joel Plaskett song "I'm Yours" live at the Dakota Tavern in Toronto.
