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

Gabardine Swine / Fluffy the Pitbull
Gabardine Swine I love being right. It doesn't happen all that often, so I have to make the best of it.

What's he babbling about, I hear you cry. When I first heard Fluffy the Pitbull, my immediate reaction was Klezmer. The track was Rat Race. And something about the tempo and the instrumental backing and maybe even the vocal reminded me of Jewish music. So when I did a quick search on the artist, whose name is actually Nicole Chaplain-Pearman, and read her claim to be (and I quote) "a total klezmaniac", I felt even smarter than I usually do. (I'm sorry you had to see that.)

Anyway, Fluffy has a sound all her own. In fact, I was surprised to discover that she's a she; hers is not what I would call a feminine voice. But the combination of Fluffy's vocals, instrumentation and witty and iconoclastic lyrics puts Gabardine Swine a cut above the usual iTMS offerings.
