Win an iPod

Just thought I'd let my dozen readers know about an iPod Nano giveaway that's going on at Carbon Records. Buy $20 worth of stuff and your name will go into a drawing for a new iPod Nano. Pretty good deal. The music there ranges from "(some) indie pop/rock to improv/noise/drone/experimental." Check it out.

Fans of smart power pop, ala Elliot Smith, Big Star, Rogue Wave, etc., should definitely check out Hinkley. Very very nice. You can get some MP3s here.

(No, I'm not making anything from this, but the proprietor there is an old friend.)
