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

The Bottom Half / Umphrey's McGee
There's one of those imponderables, which seems worth discussing when guys get together, at least after several beers have been consumed. Given a chance to encounter a mermaid, would it be better to have one that's top girl and bottom fish, or the other way around? Then again, there are implications that are better not considered sober.

What brought this to mind are the lovely but appallingly bottom-heavy models on the cover of this album. And which are easier to discuss than is Umphrey's McGee's music, which defies easy categorization or even description, or maybe that's just me. Still, in two CDs-worth of material there's plenty to explore, to wonder at and to enjoy, sometimes all at once. And if nothing here is quite as profound as that mermaid question, well, what is?
