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.

The Anti-Hit List/The Old Soul

As usual here is my rundown of John Sakamoto's Anti-Hit List. A weekly top ten of songs you may not normally know about.

In this week's Anti-Hit List is pretty low key. He points the way to new stuff from The Wreckers (Michelle Branch's new country group, didn't do much for me), new Dixie Chicks (produced by Rick Rubin and not actually sounding half bad. Never thought I'd say that but it's a good song) and of course a mash-up of Boston, Skynyrd and Warren Zevon.

Not that I check everything out but my favorite this week is "Bonne Brae" by Twilight Singers.

Also very cool is a link new Billy Bragg, recorded less then two weeks ago, called "Bush War Blues". Not sure if it's me but the song seems to be a bit political (yeah I'm being a smartass or a dumbass depending on your perspective).

In other stuff

-The Old Soul was really, really good. No horn section which kinda bummed me out at the start but when they started playing there was no disappointment.
-Tomas left a comment saying that my Johnny Cash zip files are the same. I'm gonna check that out today but it's gonna take time since Rapidshare only lets me download once an hour. Thanks and I'll get it fixed up.
-That's it for now. Later today a covers post (since that seems to be what the kids like these days)
