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

Nolita / Keren Ann
Nolita I grew up in New York. And sometimes I think I don't know the city at all. Nolita is a Manhattan neighborhood; it's short for North of Little Italy. And it's where French/Israeli singer Keren Ann now lives. Which is enough about Manhattan neighborhoods.

Now let's talk about Nolita the album. Keren Ann has a quiet, gentle voice that reminds me a little of the young Marianne Faithfull. Her songs, some in English and some in French, are soft and haunting. And the backing instrumentals stay in the background where they belong, an impressive feat given the fragility of that singular voice. This is a remarkable album all around.
