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

Night in Old Town / Susan & The SurfTones
Years ago a friend from Dallas introduced me to Riders in the Sky, explaining in the face of my objections that there's a world of difference between cowboy and country music. Cowboy music, she said, is happy.

And so is surf music. It's not deeply meaningful. But it can certainly lift your spirits. And even better, there are no lyrics to interfere with your musical enjoyment. The only problem, if you believe there's one, is that after three or four tracks you're wishing for a little variety.

And that's what I like about Night in Old Town. Unlike their earlier tracks on the iTMS, which I sampled after discovering this album (and which for some reason are not linked correctly; do a search on "susan & surftones" to find them), the band has found a way to vary their style from song to song without leaving the realm of surf music.

I wonder if they too were getting bored with everything sounding the same.
