Our ongoing search for reasonably priced recorded major label music continues. Tonite, one of my favorite new artists of recent years: Jack Johnson. If you like folk- and blues-inflected pop or surfers/singer-songwriters, than this is your boy. Its $10 bucks, so step up and buy one. Both of these are must haves.
Also in tonites very short list: Matthew Sweet’s Girlfriend. Its the only CD that is not under $10 this week ($10.99), but I included it because 1) it is one of the best discs to come out in the past 15 years; b) it shows you how braindead the major labels can be – A&M Records dropped this prior to its release, only to watch it become a Gold record (idiots); and iii) its available used for about $3. If you like undeniably great songs and alternative/power pop, this is a must have.
Please use the comments to demonstrate your own ignorance, unfamiliarity with empirical data and lack of respect for scientific knowledge. Be sure to create straw men and argue against things I have neither said nor implied. If you could repeat previously discredited memes or steer the conversation into irrelevant, off topic discussions, it would be appreciated. Lastly, kindly forgo all civility in your discourse . . . you are, after all, anonymous.
