a few tunes

I’ve bought a good several songs in the last day or two, and a few more in the couple weeks previous. Most are not that mainstream, having only been introduced to me through pandora, sirius, or maybe the “similar artists” box on iTunes, or else coming from artists I already knew and liked. Here’s a partial list:

The Weakerthans – Civil Twilight

Diamond Rings – Wait & See

The Gaslight Anthem – 45, Blue Jeans & White T-Shirts

Shawn Mullins – Here & Now

Mark Erelli – Lately

The Forecast – Broken Bottles, Snake Charmer

Goo Goo Dolls – Fallin’ Down, On the Lie (both off their 1993 album “Superstar Car Wash”)

Roddy Woomble – Waverly Steps

Those selections run the gamut from folk to pop to punk to alt-country/americana, but I personally like them and find them all worth a listen. As somebody said in some movie (maybe Blutarsky in Animal House? Yes, I think so, during the pledge week party scene), “it don’t cost nothin’ [to preview 90 seconds on iTunes]!”
