Sweet Static

Yes, another mp3 blog. Trying to share what I like with the world. The music here is for sampling only and are up for a limited time. It's simple really you see. If you like the music then go out and support the artists. Buy a cd/mp3/eight track, make a request on radio, see them live, tell others about it. This way this wonderful medium hopefully won't be stomped on.

Location: Windsor, Ont, Canada

Sweet Static is an mp3 blog that allows me to share the music I love and also to point out other cool things around the internet that catch my attention. It is also a place where I can talk about my radio show by the same name, now on Thursday nights from 7:00 pm to 8:00 pm on CJAM 91.5 FM in Windsor, Ontario. Got something I should hear? Email me at sweetstatic @ gmail.com. All comments left here are emailed to my inbox, so you can get a hold of me that way also. You can also follow the show/me on twitter at sweetstaticcjam.

I'm not in Texas...

Just thought I'd share that since almost every other mp3 blog in the world is there right now. However I'm in Windsor, working away and getting ready for a long weekend. Going to be a fun weekend of basketball and music.

Thursday night I'm going to The Avalon Front to see the Fembots play. Excited to see them. I saw them at the Hillside Festival when I went three years ago but this will be the first time in a club.

They've put out three albums although I've only heard the last two. Small Town Murder Scene came out in 2002. I was drawn to it when I saw the title track's video on Much More Music a lot.

Download "Small Town Murder Scene" from their website.

Really old good, old time music. It's not everyday you see bands using the saw for their songs.

Anyways last year they came out with a new album, The City. I'll admit it didn't do much for me to begin with but listening to it more the last couple of days it's started to grow on me. Here's two songs from it you can download once again from their site.


"Count Down Out Days"

The album isn't as sparse, got some horns. Really a more full sound. I guess the difference in albums threw me off. I'm curious to see how they pull it off live. Give it a try (although I recommend listening to "Small Town..." one of my personal favorite songs of the decade)

In other notes I didn't update yesterday's post. Nothing really to add except links to the bands and to take out the notes about me updating it later. I looked at the post and realized if I took those notes out then that post wouldn't have much.

Check out Marathonpacks for a college radio session from 1987 of the Pixies.

Also you should head over to Cable and Tweed for the first Silver Jews show from their tour.

Tomorrow the Nathan Coles Outfit.
