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

A Prairie Home Companion / Original Motion Picture Soundtrack
I really, really hope this movie doesn't suck.

I'm a fan of Garrison Keillor's homespun radio humor; I've spent more than a few hours listening to him tell stories of a place that never was and we wouldn't like if we found it was real. There's a gentleness to the show, the storytelling and the plays and the songs. I'm curious to see how it'll translate to film. And dreading it as well.

But at least we get the album. And that's pretty good. It's a little more star-studded than the radio show. And they probably took more than one take to get it right, not that the radio show seems to have suffered from the demands of live performance. The best compliment I can pay to the album is that it sounds like a particularly good episode of the show. And that's nice, mostly. Which is a Powdermilk Biscuit reference. But then you knew that, didn't you?
