Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

Like a new real estate agent in Los Angeles, give a warm welcome to another music venture in an already saturated market. From the founder of (sold to ArtistDirect Inc. and then to Apple) comes a way to get more mail delivered to your inbox every day. It’s called DailyCD and it’s a free newsletter featuring music articles and albums. The catch, only one per day. So to not inundate you. How novel!

You might have heard of the flagship email newsletter, DailyOM, which is one that can be both inspirational and nauseating at the same time just depending on the day.

DailyCD is about the same. We tried it all week and here are the five picks they sent along to us. You be the judge. Do you like their picks? Would they inspire you to actually buy any of these records?
