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

Incidents of Travel / David Correa & Cascada
Incidents of Travel A few days ago I wrote about Herb Alpert & Tijuana Brass. Okay, not really; all I talked about was the sexy cover of one of their albums. But that got me thinking about the other mock-Latin bands of that period: groups like the Baja Marimba Band and Sergio Mendez & Brasil '66 who took sophisticated music and strained and processed it for mainstream consumption.

Incidents of Travel is kind of like that. These Northern California musicians evoke the sounds and rhythms of Mexico and Central America. It's less like strained peas than its predecessors but, in my own limited experience, rather less passionate than the real thing. Nice without being challenging. Me, I like a challenge now and then.
