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.

New Yo La Tengo/Sweet Static Update

Well I just moved which sucks for numerous reasons. Least of which is a lack of internet at the house. So needless to say updates won't be as frequent as before but hopefully the site will be still useful to some degree.

With this in mind I was just reading the latest email from Matador Records and they had this to say about the forthcoming Yo La Tengo record.

"On September 12 (September 4 in places other than North America) we'll
be releasing a new CD / double LP by a trio we've creatively nicknamed
"America's Best Band"

Where do Yo La Tengo get off, delivering the most focused, wildly
entertaining album of their longer-than-long tenure? Where does the record
label get off, using catchphrases like "putting the 'oomph' back in
'eclectic'"? Where do you YOU get off, looking for greater details, like
the sort of person who insists on knowing how the cliffhanger ends
before the trailer even starts?

Ira, Georgia and James --- aided by longtime recording associate Roger
Mountenot, have made a habit of blowing us away and confounding
expectations time and time again, but with 'I Am Not Afraid of You and I Will
Beat Your Ass' (title culled from Kurt Thomas' words of warning to
Stephon Marbury) the trio have raised their game to unparalled heights,
creating a multi-genre masterpiece certain to win Nobel Prize
consideration. Or would you believe the Plug Awards? Either way, the believing's
in the hearing."

They also pointed the way to an early version of the song Beanbag and here you go below.

Yo La Tengo-"Beanbag Chair"

I haven't checked it out but will be sometime soon hopefully.

Anyways off for now. Back tomorrow with the Anti-Hit List for this week.
