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

Live! / Nina
A while back I mentioned hearing a Singaporean C&W band that sounded anything but Singaporean. I guess it still surprises me to learn yet again that local pop stars don't always sound particularly local. That's the case with Nina, who covers mostly R&B in a straightforward way and who is, I was surprised to discover, not American, despite her lack of an accent. (Americans, you see, are the only people on Earth who are totally without an accent. Except Southerners, of course. And New Englanders. And New Yawkers, with the exception of yours truly. But I digress.)

Turns out Nina's from the Philippines, which would explain why she's on the Warner Brothers Philippines label. But unless I'm missing something (and what are the odds of that?), there's nothing in her performance that would give her origins away. Which makes me wonder what her local fans think of that, if they prefer her exotic non-Filipina style. Guess it's all in your point of view.

Nina Live!
