i'm quite into downloading new music. excuse me, i'm also prone to understatement. yes, im very into downloading music.
one of my favourite sources is emusic. they work on a monthly subs plan. i pay about US$12/month and get 30 tracks/month.
this isn't some veiled advert for emusic, i genuinely dig the new music that that service has revealed by virtue of not representing the big name music labels well. instead we find all kinds of gems that have escaped the attention of the mainstream (universal, emi, sony etc - i'm looking at you).
so i'm going to do a new regular feature on this here blog where each month i list (with a brief comment) the music i've discovered around the net (with a bias towards music obtained on emusic).
- Radio Citizen 'Berlin Serengeti' [an oldish album but very cool - solid downbeat for fans of the likes of bonobo]
- Mux Mool 'Skulltaste' [the new-comer delivers an album where virtually every track is good]
- The Radio Dept. 'Clinging to a Scheme' [new album from providers of lovely swedish indie pop]
those are the main ones, then there is a vast smattering of one or two tracks from other artists. highlights include: architeq, neon neon, phantogram, balmorhea, delorean, beach fossils.
