So I am one of three people that own Zunes, but you know, I am quite happy with my machine. I like its interface, I like the Zune store, and I rarely miss iTunes now that I am used to the alternative. I don’t know why I am mentioning this, but I am.
In any case, I’ve been voraciously craving new music, so amongst other recent purchases (Death Cab for Cutie’s Narrow Stairs, Jason Mraz’s We Sing, We Dance, We Steal Things, Ryan Cabrera’s The Moon Under Water), I picked up Foals’ Antidotes, and I am rather impressed with it. Check out this clip:
Here’s the opening track from Mraz’s album, which I think is terrific, partially because it reminds me of a great song by Jon Brion that my friend Carolyn turned me on to some years back.
