I have no idea why I’d never noticed this before. You can listen to a preview of a song in the iTunes Store by selecting it then clicking the Play button.

Right now you’re either shouting ‘what? Everybody knows that you great lummox’, or ‘amazing. I never knew that. This makes iTunes Music Store* so much better’

Anyway, for me it’s new! Tonight saw the following albums wind their way to my compootah:

  • Vienna Teng – Waking Hour
  • Matson Belle – Goodbye Juggernaut
  • The Weepies – Say I Am You

All of which I’ve heard previously on Radio Paradise, and enjoyed enough to buy them. Previously, I’ve downloaded:

  •  the new Eels album Blinking Lights and other Revelations (funky, but getting a little tired of the same sound);
  • Zero 7 – The Garden,  a bit of a mixed bag but Throw It All Away is cracking.
  • Conjure One – Extraordinary Ways – brilliant album, from the people who brought you Delirium.
  • Various odd singles, including T-Rex – Jeepster; Nerina Pallot’s Everybody’s Gone To War; Johnny Cash with Ring of Fire; Scissor Sisters’ I Don’t Feel Like Dancin’ and the Chicago Symphony Orchestra’s rendition of Tchaikovsky’s 1812 Overture.

Bit of a mixed bag, then.

* The program is still awful. And DRM sucks.
