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 for June 17

As I play catch up with the regular Sweet Static features, here comes one more, John Sakamoto's Anti-Hit List.

Going to start with a band called Strays Don't Sleep. Sakamoto says taht they've been called "ambient alt.country" and you can hear that on the song he points out, "For Blue Eyes". However listening to a couple of other songs from their Myspace page and they also have some poppy stuff going on.

Strays Don't Sleep-"For Blue Eyes"
Strays Don't Sleep-"Cars And History"

Next up is a Robert Pollard side project called the Keene Brothers where he teams up with Tommy Keene. A really sweet song and I can't wait to check out more of their stuff when the album comes out.

Keene Brothers-"Death Of The Party"

Other stuff included this week is a Bob Dylan/Missy Elliott mash-up, Junior Boys, Matthew Sweet, Petra Haden, Roddy Frame and more.

To read the entire Anti-Hit List for this week you can head here.
