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

Gold & Wax / Gigi
Gold & Wax Gigi is Ejigayehu Shibabaw, an Ethiopean vocalist who combines her impressive range, her musical heritage and a more western sensibility and ends up with something that's easily more than the sum of its parts: seductively neither African nor European and yet strangely familiar.

But before I even got to sample a few tracks, I had to laugh at the Top Songs list on the iTMS. It seems the store confused this Gigi with a whole 'nother Gigi. A natural mistake, I suppose. At least if you're the sort who doesn't know one furriner from another. But just to keep them straight, this one's musical, the other one's a musical. Are we clear now?
