|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).
|Have some music to recommend? I can always use a few pointers. Use the comments link at the bottom of the page.

|Queen of Night / Ella Leya
As the iTMS grows ever more international, it gives us the chance to
explore a vast array of musical styles. Ella Leya is from Azerbaijan;
her music is a combination of Middle Eastern and Russian with other
influences. A lot of it is soft and haunting, like the
Prayer that made an appearance in Oceans 12. Some
are wistful and romantic like
Close My Eyes. And then there's
Just a Little Boy reminds me of my Russian grandparents,
overlaid with with a sound of sabbath prayers.
I've spent a little time in Israel and a very little in Egypt. Here is the sound of a place and an attitude. It's a sound I don't hear very often. That's a real pity.
