    Here’s one, from one of the oddest records to ever get really, really popular. Listening to this tune with my coffee now, and I think it just launched me into 2013 early.

    See y’all on the other side!Report

    Everything old is new again.

    Jeff Beck’s Song Reader isn’t an album, it’s a song book, a beautiful book, too, that Beck didn’t record. Instead, musicians (those who can read music, I presume) record versions and upload them to the website. It’s the song itself, the sheet music, that’s the product, and the rendition to the artist without the composer’s sonic formulations stamped upon it.

    There’s everything here, from out-of-tune honky-tonk sounding pianos to glitch. A crowd sourced album. Videos, some very imaginative on You Tube, and just sound clips on Sound Cloud.

    Sheet music. Imagine that.Report
