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

Gitane Cajun / Beausoleil
Gitane Gajun There's only one thing I miss about records: those big beautiful album covers. CDs are in most every respect superior; they sound better, they take up less room, they don't require nearly the maintenance. Heck, they don't need flipping! But even the best CD cover art can't compare to the detail on an album.

That's what caught my eye when I was browsing the iTMS and came upon this disc. All those shades of brown and that old fashioned lettering, they were enough to make me stop and listen. And I was impressed with what I heard, although I freely admit to knowing nothing about traditional bayou music. A little reading tells me that others think these guys are the authentic article, both instrumentally and vocally. But what do I care? What I know is that they don't sound like anything else in my iPod. I can't wait to get them into my Smart Playlist rotation.
