However, now, through the magic of iTunes and Last.fm, I have been exploring and discovering things. I find, though, that the _disadvantage_ of iTunes is that you download something and then forget that you have it! I keep looking back at my library and seeing albums that I don't remember ever listening to, and then playing them and liking them, but not being able to remember them again when I want to play them again... This is compounded by the fact that there seem to be SO MANY bands or artists out there! You can't keep track of them all.
I think I may start buying cds of my favourites so that I can see them on the shelf and remind myself to play them. Yesterday I bought the Joshua Radin cd for that reason, and anyway, he's someone I've been listening to a lot. I also bought Feist, which I listened to in my car and enjoyed thoroughly.
Other new discoveries that I'm liking a lot:
The Weepies, Say I am You
Kate Walsh, Clocktower Park
Tristan Prettyman, Hello
Kate Rusby, Awkward Annie (asakiyume - you would like this)
