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.

Jon-Rae & The River

On Tuesday when I went to get the new Arcade Fire album I also happened to grab the latest record from Jon-Rae And The River, Jon-Rae and the River Knows What You Need.

Last year I had the pleasure of seeing Joe-Rae solo opening for The Barmitzvah Brothers here in Windsor. I had really liked his 2005 album, Old Songs For The New Town. So much so it was my third favorite record of the year.

So I've been been really looking forward to the new one's release. The record came out last year but the CJAM never got a copy and I had only heard a couple of songs. I saw the record while doing a quick look after grabbing Fire's album and decided to get it.

Well I've hardly been listening to Neon Bible at all the last couple of days. Partly this is because I've been listening to the record for the last month quite a bit. Mostly though, it's because I'm really enjoying the new River album. They're on tour across Canada with The Constantines this month so check them out if you get the chance.

They have a free download on their website for you to sample yourself. It's down below.

Also there's an excellent article on Jon-Rae And The River from Exclaim last year go here.
