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

Crossing the Stone / Catrin Finch
Crossing the Stone I can feel a rant coming on. Not only does this album not remotely belong in Classical, but Sony ought to be ashamed for leaving out one track and then expecting us to pay more for an incomplete collection than the CD goes for on Amazon. Bastards!

Okay, rant over. Now let's talk about the music. Catrin Finch plays the harp. And if you're like me, you can tolerate two, maybe three harp tracks before you want to hear something else. Anything else. But that's what's so interesting here. Because these aren't just harp performances. And they certainly aren't classical harp performances. There's the infectious energy of Café Vamp Latino, the New Agey sound of Mountain Dance, the Irish lilt of ThingamuJig. And yes, there's even a bit of classical in Clair de Lune. (Which for some reason the iTMS insists on calling Claire De Lune, but never mind that.)

As a fan of crossovers and covers, I think a little bit of classical is just fine. Although I'll be buying my copy at Tower, thank you very much. Bastards.
