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

Two Way Monologue / Sondre Lerche
Two Way Monologue Grampa Simpson once said, "Ya know, you remind me of a poem I can't remember, and a song that may never have existed, and a place I'm not sure I've ever been to." Having listened to Two Way Monologue, I kind of know how he feels. Although I hope that doesn't mean I'm having a stroke too.

What I mean is that there's something both familiar and strange about the songs of Sondre Lerche. I know I've never heard them before, or him either. And yet there's still that strange sense of memory, as if this album is composed of aspects of other songs and other performers, put together in a way that makes them both recognizable and fresh, like that memory old Abe isn't quite sure he ever had.

Getting wisdom from the Simpsons. Maybe I was on the right track after all with that stroke theory.
