Slip Slidin' Away

I'm having trouble getting inspired at the moment, so I've decided to rest this blog until I've got something to say, which may be tomorrow, may be next week, next month, whatever.

Take care, and catch you soon, hopefully!

Neko Case's New Single - officially available for free!

Having discovered the blogosphere about 18 months ago, I've been eagerly investigating all sorts of music I either heard a long time ago and wanted to hear again, or checked out artists I'd read about and whose music was - until now - all but impossible to obtain, and having heard it was usually glad that I hadn't parted with huge amounts of money for the original vinyl.

Very occasionally I'll download something by someone who I've never heard of, and am not usually impressed, but sometimes I find someone whose music puts a big smile on my face and makes me want to jump around like a teenager again - one of these has been Neko Case.

She's giving $5 to the Best Friends Animal Society charity for every blog which links to the giveaway download of her new single, "People Got A Lotta Nerve".

It's twangy, it's countrified, it bounces along like the Rockingbirds at their finest, she has a fabulous voice - and it's in a great cause.

Read all about it.

Download it here.
