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

Scissors in My Pocket / Polly Paulusma
I've commented before about the peculiarities of the iTMS's classification system. But here's a real doozy: Scissors in My Pocket gets placed under Folk, while Cosmic Rosy Spine Kites, a live version of the same songs, somehow makes it into Rock. What's even funnier is that Cosmic is even more Folk than Scissors. Prove it to yourself; give a listen to the Scissors version of One Day. Now listen to the version on Cosmic. Does it sound like Rock to you?

I'm splitting hairs, of course. Just filling space. But whether you prefer the polished version or the more spontaneous one, Ms. Paulusma has a great sound. She reminds me a little of Darling Violetta, the folks who recorded the theme to Joss Whedon's Angel. Only smoother and more adventurous. Now that's something to celebrate.
