1. Santana - Santana vs. 2. Nico - The Marble Index
7. The Go-Betweens - Liberty Belle and the Black Diamond Express vs. 3. The Breeders - Pod
6. Passion Pit - Gossamer vs. 4. Brian Wilson - Brian Wilson
5. Focus - In And Out Of Focus vs. 8. Ritchie Valens - Ritchie Valens

Again the first match-up is by far the hardest. In advance I thought I would go with Nico, but Santana hit a sweet spot this week. The other choices were easy. The last match-up is relatively weak.
