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.

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.

Rainy day, blah.

Forgot to set my alarm and ended up sleeping all day. Had planned to get up and listen to my friend Sookie's radio show on CHRW in London. Her show, The All-Syrup Super Squishee Show is on Thursdays from 3:30-6pm. So check it out next week.

Just a couple of random notes tonight

-You Ain't No Picasso is in the middle of putting up the annual Yo La Tengo covers night fundraiser for WFMU in New York city. Really great mix of songs. Can't wait to hear it all.
-Funny checking out the WFMU page and their pledge drive. Their goal is $850,000. At CJAM we made like $12,000 for our pledge drive and I thought it was successful. Weird how things can be different.

Lastly I'm just going to recommend a band to check out. Greenfield Main is from Ottawa and is on Kelp Records.

The band has released two albums, Hunting Tips for Everyone and Barnburners and Heartchurners. Hunting Tips was a fun album but a bit of a novelty. All the song titles were taken from chapters in a hunting book (hence "Woodchucks Can Fool You") Still the songs were great.

However Barnburners was a more straight ahead record with man beautiful and great songs. The album is a couple of years old now but I've been listening to it a lot the last couple of weeks. It's one of those records I find myself going back to a lot.

Download "Fireworks Display" off of Barnburners and Heartchurners from the Kelp website directly.

In fact just check out all the free downloads here from the label's site, including 3 more from Greenfield Main (I just recommended one above), Rhume, The Acorn and more.

For more on the label, Exclaim Magazine has a feature on Kelp in the latest issue.
