Sherman's eating as fast as he can....

Sherman is ingesting as much new music as he can from iTunes. Reason being...he wants to be a contest winner (who doesn't?)! Apple is well on it's way to the One billionth download and is running a giveaway inconjunction with your purchases. For every 100,000 download, it is giving away a 4GB Nano and $100 iTunes gift card. The real winner will be the lucky person who purchases the one billionth song....

One 20-inch iMac
Ten 60GB iPods (5 white/5 black)
One U.S. $10,000 iTunes Music Card (good for any media type)

Sherman has been on MySpace for a couple months and has to admit that the exposure to music on there is mindblowing. Not a fan of all aspects of the site, but as far as music goes, it's a winner. SO many artists both new and old make their music available for all to hear either for stream or even download. The latest to do this is Isobel Campbell. Head over to her page and take a listen prior to the March US release. GORGEOUS! She and Mark Lanegan have crafted a real gem here. Campbell's airy sweet vocals paired up with the gruff and growly Lanegan create an ideal coupling. I really couldn't imagine that this would work as well as it has. There's something so "real" about it, not to mention eerie. Campbell wrote most of the songs and produced the album in Glasgow. Lanegan added his vocals in LA. This distance seems to be a metaphor for the entire release. Look for US tour dates too!

Sherman has to share a great top 10 he received today. It fits in with his adoration for the guilty pleasure. DJ Ron Carroll has provided his top 10 tracks for February. Check out numero uno! Sylvester should always be #1!!!!!
