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

Songs for Ice Cream Trucks / Michael Hearst
Songs for Ice Cream Trucks There was a time when my record collection was way too heavy on comedy and other novelty discs and frighteningly light on actual music. And even when I got things in balance I still had a certain fondness for oddities. I remember one trip to Tokyo where I discovered a shop selling CDs of music box recordings. They were every bit as tedious as you might imagine, which didn't stopping me from buying one. (Okay, two.)

So it's with a sense of both nostalgia and head-shaking that I approach Songs. It's supposed to evoke those tinny tunes that once brought such joy on the hot summer days of my youth. (Now it's Tanqueray & tonic.) In truth, I hear more videogame soundtrack than joy of summer in these selections. But that's me; your mileage may vary.
