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

Veronica Mars / Original Television Soundtrack
Veronica Mars is a Buffy for a new decade.

I read recently that Joss Whedon's a huge Veronica fan, to the extent that he's supposed to do a guest shot in the new season. Not really a surprise; Veronica's a show Joss might have produced. It's stylish, darkly funny, incisive, smart, surprising, visually stunning and, more relevant to this discussion, musically interesting. Not in the au courant sense of The O.C., at least not exclusively. More in the way Buffy and Angel used different songs in different styles to enhance the storytelling.

I don't want to overstate the similarities between Veronica and Buffy. But they're both rich entertainment. And they're both great ways to discover new and exciting music.
