Thanks to Pandora.com, I turned onto a song buy a band called Artichoke. I sent them a check and in the mail today, two day's shy of Darwin's birthday, was said album. Why is Darwin's birthday important to an album?
The album is called:
26 Scientists: Anning to Malthus
And it rules. The link has a sample of the song of Mary Anning, the Englishwoman who was the first woman paleontologist.
I'd really like to post an MP3 of the Darwin song, but I feel weird about piracy. So much, that I bought two, so I could give one as a gift (rather than ripping/burning). Also, Vol. 2 is on the way! Joy!
So, if you like indie music and you like science, get this.
Listening to while posting: Darwin, Charles Robert (1809-1882). For the third time tonight.
