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 Else / They Might Be Giants
I've always thought of They Might Be Giants as something of an acquired taste, rather like beer or many of the foods of my childhood, the kind of things that would be suspect or even mildly revolting to someone who didn't grow up Jewish in New York in the late 50s and early 60s. I first heard Giants on Tiny Toon Adventures, as I recounted around the beginning of this blog in a post about The Roches. And it took a while after that to appreciate their particular blend of tuneful and weird.

So what does it mean that I don't get that sense of weird listening to The Else? Have they mellowed? Or have my musical taste buds been so corrupted, at least where they're concerned, that I can't be disturbed any more? Truly a puzzlement. Now I'm just left enjoying the music, which is hardly a complaint. Still, I miss being disturbed. (No, not like that!)
