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 Roches / The Roches
The Roches Sometimes the iTMS delivers new music; sometimes I find old and forgotten favorites. This debut album by The Roches is a good example of the latter. It showed up under Folk, which is fair enough. But Contemporary? Fifteen years after its release, is it still contemporary?

But no matter. It's still funny and goofy and sweet and surprising. It reminds me of the first time I heard the sisters, on an episode of Tiny Toon Adventures of all things. Where they played real roaches, or at least the cartoon version. And it was another episode of the same show that introduced me to They Might Be Giants, with Tiny Toons videos to both Particle Man and Istanbul (Not Constantinople). Good stuff.
