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.

My PLUG Award Votes

I was reading an email from a label and they mentioned the PLUG Awards and I thought I'd vote. I also thought it'd make for a good post. I'm just going by their nominations and not doing any write in votes.

Album Of The Year-I've got to go with The Arcade Fire's Neon Bible. Have to admit that I haven't heard all the albums but I did really like Neon Bible.

New Artist Of The Year-Not even close here. I'm a huge fan of Los Campesinos! and can't wait for the full length next year.

Female Artist Of The Year-Not an easy choice but I'm going to go with Sharon Jones. I'm sure if I had seen Bettye LaVette when I had the chance I'd be voting for her but I love Sharon Jones.

Male Artist Of The Year-I'm going to with Sam Beam of Iron & Wine. I'm just getting into the latest record but it's enough for my vote.

Indie Rock Album Of The Year-Was thinking about The New Pornographers but sticking with Neon Bible.

Americana Album Of The Year-Another pretty easy one as I'm voting for The Avett Brothers' Emotionalism.

Music Website Of The Year-I'm going with Daytrotter, if only for the awesome Rock Plaza Central session they did.

Music Blog Of The Year-My favorite isn't on the main list so I'm going to go with An Aquarium Drunkard.

Magazine Of The Year-Another easy one for me and I voted for Magnet.

So there you go. The rest of the categories I didn't vote on. Definitely go and have your voice heard.
