A Nice Surprise


I was exploring Blip.fm, yet another networking device – this one allows you to send links to mp3s via Twitter and its own list – and found an extensive selection of Allen Toussaint on Warner Bros., much of which is hard to get otherwise right now. I haven’t further investigated the New Orleans-ness of Blip.fm, but so far I’ve been pleased by its range. Yes to Acid Mothers Temple, yes to the Mekons, yes to the Tindersticks, yes to Red Simpson, and I’m listening to K-Doe’s “Popeye Joe” while writing this.
