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.

Back with my look at the weekly Canadian Music charts. I've decided to just use the Earshot charts since they are the official ones of the NCRA and there is timing differences between the Chart Magazine one and Earshot.

5 They Shoot Horses Don't They? Boo Hoo Hoo Boo Kill Rock Stars
6 Calexico Garden Ruin Quarterstick
7 Magneta Lane Dancing With Daggers Paper Bag
8 Destroyer Destroyer's Rubies Merge
9 Run Chico Run Slow Action Boompa
10 Mogwai Mr Beast Matador

and of coure the top ten from my home station, CJAM is

1 Ten Year Drought Memoranda Independent

-in other news the Winnipeg Sun has an article on the upcoming Neil Young album.

It includes a song called "Impeach the President". Details of it come from the Last Left Turn Before Hooterville blog where singer Alicia Morgan describes the session. Check out the entire post here.

The album according to the post may be out in six to eight weeks. Should be interesting.

Probably one more post today with the Anti-Hit List recap and anything else I can find.
