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 2008 Sweet Static Baker's Dozen

Another year has come and gone and despite my erratic posting tendencies another edition of the Sweet Static Baker's Dozen is here. This is not the best or greatest albums of the year. These are the albums that I found myself going back to over and over.

As in every other year on my radio show I will be playing a song from each album and then uploading the entire playlist as a zip file. The link for that is at the end. For now though in alphabetical order are my favorite albums of 2008.

Write ups coming soon. Just wanted the list of albums (and songs played on the show) online.

The Awkward Stage-Slimming Mirrors, Flattering Lights
-Mini Skirt Of Xmas Lights

Jason Collett-Stay Positive
-Out Of Time
