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 Rheostatics Tribute Album Out

Good news as some of Canada's best bands have come together to pay tribute to Canada's best band (in my opinion) the Rheostatics as their final show approaches at the end of the month.

The songs were all recorded early this year and the album is being put out on Sweet Static favorite Zunior. Here's the track listing

1. The Weakerthans - Bad Time To Be Poor from the album The Blue Hysteria
2. Stephen Stanley & Carla MacNeil - Take Me In Your Hand from the album Introducing Happiness
3. Weeping Tile with Chris Brown - Public Square from the album Greatest Hits
4. The Wooden Stars - Saskatchewan from the album Melville
5. The Inbreds - Dopefiends and Boozehounds from the album Whale Music
6. King Cobb Steelie - Seven Stars Remix a reworking of Night Of The Shooting Stars and Music Inspired By The Group Of 7
7. Barenaked Ladies with Tim Mech and Jason Plumb - Legal Age Life At The Variety Store from the album Whale Music
8. The Golden Seals - Loving Arms from the album Harmelodia
9. Cuff The Duke - Claire from the album Introducing Happiness
10. Kate Fenner and Tony Scherr - Stolen Car from the album Double Live
11. By Divine Right - Shaved Head from the album Whale Music
12. Dylan Hudecki - Satan Is The Whistler from the album Night Of The Shooting Stars
13. The Local Rabbits - Record Body Count from the album Melville

For the full official details from the Zunior site go here.

The Rugs Don't Work also has some details which you can see here.

As a huge Rheostatics fan I'm really pumped to hear this. Some notable reforming going on for the album including Weeping Tile, Local Rabbits and The Inbreds. Yes Weeping Tile reforms every year for a Christmas show but for these three bands this is the first time I've heard of them recording anything new in years.

More on this and the Rheostatics final show to come.
