the current is responsible for most of my purchases at the amazon .mp3 store these days. some recent awesomeness bestowed on me by them includes:

  • broken bells – ‘broken bells’: debut album from james mercer (of the shins) and danger mouse.  good in a way i haven’t figure out yet, but definitely good.
  • edward sharpe and the magnetic zeros – ‘edward sharpe and the magnetic zeros‘: “home” is toe tapper that just got under my skin (in a good way), and the rest of the album is just as awesomely weird.
  • jason lytle – ‘yours truly, the commuter‘: reminded me a lot of sparklehorse when i first heard him.  then i started listening to (and buying more) sparklehorse.  and then things got very sad when mark linkous passed, and now i can’t stop listening to either of them.

so go ahead and add the current’s live stream to your iTunes: i listen to it almost every morning, and i swear it makes me a better person. or something.

blah blah “amazon associate” blah blah blah “tiny percentage of your purchase” blah blah blah blah blah.
