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

Fort Nightly / White Rabbits
There's something both appealing and disconcerting going on here, a combination of styles that ought not to work, maybe takes some getting used to, but that seems likely to reward the effort. Quoting MusicRemedy quoting AllMusic.com (talk about lazy; I can't even steal from somebody firsthand!), "If Liberace joined a swing band, and enlisted a guitarist addicted to eclecticism (Western, surf flecked, and C&W included), it might sound a bit like this." Another reviewer hears ska in the mix, although without the rough amateurish quality we associate with ska. (If it isn't rough and amateurish -- and I mean that in a good way -- is it ska?)

Maybe we need another genre. How about Uneasy Listening? Think anybody's go for that?
