Music Beta. Version 2.2

More 30 second reviews of my new music purchases

Jack Johnson and Friends
Sing-alongs and Lullibies for the film Curious George

Alright...I love Jack Johnson and I really love Curious George. That little monkey brings back memories of being read to as a wee little lass, along with Goodnight Moon, Harold and the Purple Crayon, and Goose Goofs off, but now I'm getting off subject, Anyways this is a fun little album. Innocent in a little kid kind of way, like the tracks "The Sharing Song" about you guessed it sharing and Three Rs" Reduce, Recycle and Reuse, A perfect compainion to the new movie about that curious little monkey and The Man in the Yellow Hat (I wonder how many more times I can say little in this review). He got some of his friends guesting on it Including Ben Harper, Matt Costas, and G Love. Favs include "Broken", "People Watching" and the White Strips Cover "We are gonna be Friends".

KT Tunstall
Eye to the Telescope

Tunstall said it best herself, this is "Acoustic Folk Rock Girl Stomp" What fun. This Scottish import is great. Love Her...WhooHoo

Now frankly I haven't bought much full albums is a while. Mostly just random tracks from iTunes, however I have also discovered the podcast, a bit late I know. I have been procratinating on my acting packet listening to The Answer Bitch and SPINsider. And I have to say the Answer Bitch is quite funny, entertaining, wonderful, all of the above and I love her little bitchlings (her interns).

Thats it for me until next time...

KT Tunstall sounds interesting. I'm going to do some research on her. I'm probably missing out by not investigating more new music. I'm afraid I've been spending a lot of time and money rebuilding the sparse collection I had as a teenager. I couldn't afford too much back then so now I'm buying all the albums I wanted but couldn't afford. Ever hear of "County Joe and the Fish"?

Now my posts seem to be working but your comment meter seems to be dead.

Tunstall has a brief write-up in Rolling Stone. She is also featured in some music DL ad.
