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 August 5

Back once again with John Sakamoto's Anti-Hit List for August 5.

Going to start off with a weird cover of ZZ Top's "Legs" redone as synth heavy pop song with a female singer. Done by Dutch band Like A Tim it's different but still fairly faithful to the originial. The mp3 is up on the Spoilt Victorian Child blog, which you can find the post here.

Up next is a band from Newfoundland called The Human Soundtrack. Sakamoto points out a song called "Off-Kilter Electronic Blues" which isn't on their Myspace page. He says the songs on the page are almost as good as the one he likes and I have to say I find them pretty decent. I'd like to check out the whole album sometime.

Captain from England is next. Sakamoto points out the song "Accidie" from their forthcoming album This Is Hazelville. Really sweet pop song. Can't remember ever hearing anything about them but I defintely want to find out more now. Check out "Accidie" and three other songs on their Myspace page.

Lastly what would it be without a mash, this time featuring Gnarles Barkley and Hall & Oates. Done by Spin Junkies take "Smiley Faces" and "Maneater" and voila you have "Face Eater". Lots of fun but let's not hope it leads to a Hall & Oates revival like Sakamoto predicts.

Gnarles Barkley vs. Hall & Oates-"Face Eater"

That's all for this week from me. Other things on the list include Jim Noir, Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Lustra.

Thanks for the mention. It's Gnarls actually, no "e". No more Hall & Oates planned. (wink-wink, nudge-nudge)
