What you're about to read is a collection of pointers to some of the music I've discovered on the iTunes Music Store, music I like enough that I want to share it. If you're an iPod owner and an iTunes fan (and if you aren't, what are you doing here?), maybe you'll find something new. Click on any of the CD covers to bounce over to the store and sample a few tracks. And then maybe stop by my other blog for a few well chosen words (and maybe a random snark or two).RSS feed

The Greatest / Cat Power
The Greatest I first read about The Greatest in a recent issue of Entertainment Weekly. It didn't make much of an impression, which is hardly surprising; reading about music is like hearing about a painting. And even EW's enthusiasm didn't get me to sample any of her tracks; that had to wait for my weekly wander through the iTMS.

A few seconds of the title track was enough to grab my attention. As you may have noticed, I like low key vocals, especially female, and especially when they're accompanied by rich but not overpowering instrumentals. All of which are on display here, thanks to a company of well known Memphis musicians backing Ms. Power.

Oh, and since other reviews have mentioned it, I will too: this isn't a greatest hits collection; it's all new material. The Greatest isn't a reflection on the tracks inside, but a reflection on the subject of that title song. Just so we're clear.
