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

Songs for Bright Street / Amy Speace
Songs for Bright Street It's the incongruities that get my attention. Like now, which is why I mention the subject. I see the name of an album or artist and decide to investigate. The iTMS says it's folk, although the outfit and the hat suggest country. And I don't like country all that much. But I persevere. And I notice that the Top Songs list starts with a track called Dreaming. But it can't be that Dreaming, can it? I mean, what's a folksinger doing covering Blondie?

Good things, as it turns out, even if she sounds more country than folk as she reinvents Debbie Harry. And the rest of the album keeps the surprise going. There's more genre-bending throughout. And not nearly as much country as I feared.
