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.

This week's Anti-Hit List

Well in this week's Anti-Hit List, John Sakamoto has a few nifty tunes.

Most importantly is pointing out that Ron Sexsmith has a sneak preview of a track from his new album, Time Being. The song, which was released to radio in Canada last week, "All in Good Time" is called by Sakamoto as "...deceptively jaunty rumination that's so effortlessly melodic, it's downright McCartney-esque." and that it "...deserves a place on any mix CD designed to accompany the first truly summery day of 2006"

The other song to catch my eye was by Justine Electra. She's from Germany, via Australia. You can stream two songs and download "Defiant and Proud". He compares Defiant to Jenny Lewis (which is why it caught my eye since I love her record) saying, "Set to a haunting waltz tempo, it takes the same chilling, matter-of-fact approach to narrating events that Lewis does, and to similarly memorable effect."

My take, I like the song you can download and it definitely will be liked by those who are still digging the Lewis record. Not sure about the other two songs though. I'll have to give them a couple of more listens. They're different then "Defiant and Proud". Still I'd recommend checking her out.

Other then that he points the way to his usual favorite mashups (including one of Kansas and Korn????) and new music including The New Cars (which I'm thinking is just wrong).

Hillside Festival post this afternoon. I've started it just editing it up still.
