Favorite new finds

I have a shameful itunes addiction. I love finding new music, and I have such eclectic tastes that the poor "just for you" feature in my itunes is as confused as a kitten in a geometry class. I have three new obsessions...

Hymns by Beth Neilsen Chapman -- a collection of pre-Vatican II hymns, mostly in Latin, all arranged with multi-part harmony. They are really beautiful, and enjoyable for a Catholic-dabbler such as myself. I am a sucker for Latin.

Walking in the Air by Chloe Agnew -- She makes me seriously jealous, since she has the voice I wish I had. Pretty standard "pretty voice" music (she does a lot of the same stuff that was on Josh Groban's forst album), but in a good range for me to sing along, which I like. It goes well with the Beethoven and Debussy I listen to while I am trying to go to sleep.

Lady Sovereign -- British white chick rapper, think Spice Girls meet Eminem. Awesome dance music, really fun mix of hip-hop and techno with an edge. I LOVE it.

I told you it was eclectic. At least I have not put them all on the same playlist. Yet.

ahhh the joys of itunes. It's the best thing that ever happen to music.. Oh just go crazy and put them on the same playlist.. then you get a great surprise.. i love that!

I've got my Lucy 1 mix and Lucy 2. The first is just all my favs that make me happy : Juanes, the Shins, David Gray, U2, etc and Lucy 2 is suuper chill for delivery time: Enya, Loreena McKennitt, Hem, even a little Josh Groban for fun.. i use it all the time already to settle me down.. Hope it works for D-day..
