OK, you have to check out The Kids of Widney High. Widney is a special ed high school in L.A., where teacher Mike Monagan started a songwriting class in 1987. From that grew a singing/songwriting group, which just released their third album Act Your Age (currently on playlist rotation at WXDU). You can listen to 2-minute clips of every song at CD Baby (definitely pick the "play all songs hi-fi broadband" option, because the lo-fi sounds like crap). Whatever you do, be sure to listen to track 1, "Life Without the Cow." It's a standout.
