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

Meet The Smithereens / The Smithereens
Meet The Smithereens We're still waiting for the rumoured day when real Beatles tracks will finally make their way to the iTunes Store. (Unless of course that happens between my writing the previous sentence and the moment it gets posted, in which case, never mind.) While we're waiting, The Smithereens' tribute version of the first US Beatles release is both eminently listenable and a reminder of a moment when rock was about to change in a big way. I was too young to appreciate the shift at the time, or too clueless, or more likely both. But even I should have felt how big a change was coming. And The Smithereens have both recreated that breakthrough album and given it their own spin. Which makes me wonder: do younger audiences need to rediscover The Beatles, or did they never disappear from popular consciousness? I suspect I know the answer to that one.
