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

Stereotyped / 2 Brothers and a Brotha'
There was a time when I was way too into comedy records. Especially comedy music, which is not at all the same thing as Musical Comedy. For me it probably began with Allen Sherman, who would later become an object lesson in what happens to the Flavor of the Month when we inevitably flip the calendar to a new month. And then it evolved, starting with my brother's tapes of Tom Lehrer and going in all sorts of odd directions. But eventually I grew up. Sorta, anyway. And I left comedy music behind. Mostly, at least.

But every time I think I'm out, they pull me back in. Like these guys, who emailed me out of the blue in hopes of getting a little free publicity. So I finally got around to listening, and I got a kick out of what I heard. As you might guess from their name and that of the album, a big chunk of their output plays on music stereotypes. But not all; I wouldn't wish an hour of Rap parodies on anybody. Well, yeah, there are a few Red Staters I'd wish it on. But that's another conversation for another time.
