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 Tiki & The Guitar / Kahuna Kawentzmann
A couple of hundred posts ago I wrote about Susan & The Surftones, a band that took 60s surf music in some interesting directions. And now here's another one. The Tiki & The Guitar could easily pass for the soundtrack of a retro beach movie. Or even better, a revamp of those kitchy Polynesian restaurants that have mostly disappeared from the landscape. Anybody want to help me invest in one? Who knows; the pu-pu platter could be the next Big Mac... The Tiki & The Guitar

Listen To Your Heart / D.H.T. Featuring Edmée
Listen To Your Heart In his Coverville podcast, Brian Ibbott explains what makes a great cover: that it gives the song a new twist. That's as good an answer as any; if the cover sounds like the original, what's the point? There are all kinds of ways to twist a song. You can make it faster. You can make it slower. You can just make it... different. I'm not sure how danceable these versions are. But as covers I'd say they're not bad.

DiscO-Zone / O-Zone
DiscO-Zone This one takes a little explanation. Which is good, because I only have a little explanation.

This is a collection of dance music by a Romanian pop group. They did a song called Dragostea Din Tei. And then they made a video. And that would have been the end of it, were it not for a bunch of people with a talent for Flash and way too much time on their hands. Starting with these Japanese guys. And followed by some Hungarians. And now I can't get this song out of my head.

If I have to suffer, I'll be damned if I'm gonna do it alone.

Shine / Bond
I first came across Bond in a mention in somebody or other's blog, I think in the context of their performance on an ad for Raymond Weil watches. I never saw the ad in question. In fact, I don't believe I've ever seen a television ad for Raymond Weil. (Then how did I discover the wonderfulness of their timepieces? An interesting question for another time and place. Once again I digress.)

Anyway, Bond is a string quartet. A quartet of incredibly beautiful women. Which shouldn't matter, right? I mean, especially on my iPod, where I can't see what they look like. Fortunately, their performances are dynamite, full of energy and fun. And they've even done a cover of the (other) Bond theme. Called, cleverly enough, Bond on Bond. Given the number of (James) Bond-related discs in my collection, how could I pass this one up?
