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

Surfer's Choice / Dick Dale & the Del-Tones
Surfer's Choice I've already written about modern surf bands, not just once but twice! So what could be more natural than to go back to the beginning, to the guy who once defined surf music. And not just for the historical value, for the chance to hear Sloop John B before The Beach Boys got their hands on it. (A song which, by the way, is much, much older than that.) But also for the inventiveness of a surf version of the Middle Eastern-sounding Miserlou, which adds a South of the Border brass that may have inspired Herb Alpert and his bunch. Or maybe because it's music like this that once symbolized California, at least to those of us who grew up shivering on the other side of the country.
