The Most Wonderful Time of the Year

The spirit of giving continues with two tasty recommendations for the discriminating Everything is Pop reader. First up is CBC Radio 2 Presentation of Tortoise at the 2008 Guelph Jazz Festival. Regretfully this “Concert on Demand” is only streaming on the Radio 2 Website but it is worth a listen. The recording is pristine and features a number of new tracks from Tortoises' forthcoming 2009 release. I attended this concert and it truly was one of my live music highlights of 2008.

Next up is something you can indeed download to your MP3 appliance of choice. The fine folks at Merge Records are offering a sampler of some of their best music of 2008. Everyone from Lambchop to the Rosebuds to Conor Oberst is featured on this one. Well worth your downloading time and perfect for those last minute trips of traipsing through the mall. Please note that you will have to provide an email address to register for the download.

Is that really what the discriminating Everything is Pop reader looks like? Whew, good thing I am not very discriminating!

I shall certainly have to check out the sampler though, thanks for that.
