Welcome to Mousekitty's Music Review!

An eclectic music show.

Let me start this by saying I LOVE MUSIC.

Music has been part of my life for as long as I can remember. I was raised singing along to my mother's piano when I was little, to enjoying classic country music when I was young, moving on to take up playing the flute (as well as playing-at and learning other instruments), and finally listening to almost every radio station Oklahoma City has to offer. I love to sing and I love to listen to good music.

My musical tastes are very eclectic. I can enjoy everything from country to rap, classical to heavy metal, pop to blues, and everything in between. That said, lately I've tended to rock of some sort.

Music these days seems to defy classification, even though people still want it. We want music to fit neatly into the nice labels we've created for it. We also tend to only rely upon the radio to expose us to new music and new bands. This is an unfortunate side effect of our "rat-race" society.

Luckily for me, I took up a challenge a few months ago that forced me to break with tradition and seek out new music and new bands wherever I could find them. That challenge, of course, was (and is) the YDK Music Search.

I have been able to find some excellent music for specific sections of the Life And Deaths Of Cooter Brown. So far, we've featured three different bands that might otherwise never been heard of by many.

In the process of finding music for LDCB, I listen to probably hundreds of different bands and songs. Most of it we can't use in LDCB (or at least we can't use it yet) because it doesn't fit what we want at the moment. So, I write it down and keep track of it for later use.

I've got probably files and files of pages and pages of music I found in my quests that is simple awesome. I save the lists for later, so I can have something to refer to when we're looking for something new. But recently, I decided to put those lists to even better use.

Thus, I introduce to you Mousekitty's Music Review. This will represent my effort to share more great, unknown or little known music with the wider world. Through this, I will recommend songs I've found that I think need to be heard by everyone.

Here's how it will go. Each podcast will feature 5-10 songs and bands. Sometimes I might go with a central theme, or a specific style of music, but usually, it will simply be a hodgepodge of music styles, themes, and bands. You might hear something you've heard before, or you might hear something you've never even considered listening to that you like. Sometimes I'll give some commentary on a song or a band, and sometimes I won't.

I make no promises to cater to specific music tastes. I make no promises that you'll like every episode. I make no promises of regular updates (following good YDK tradition, obviously). I make no promises at all except for two: I promise to try to expose others to things they probably have never heard otherwise; I also promise to encourage my listeners to seek out the bands I feature, listen to their other songs, purchase their music, and support these great bands.

I hope you enjoy my newest project. Click the headphones at the top of this page for the newest podcast and check back frequently for the next episodes!
