Really, really loving this collaboration between BT and Christian Burns, which just hit Spotify today but has been available on vinyl for a while. The only negative is that it’s not enough and I want more.
2016 sucked in many ways, but at least we got new Metallica out of the deal. Can pretty safely say that after listening to it for a few weeks straight, Hardwired…To Self Destruct is one of their strongest efforts in the last couple decades (and has a really face-melting title track that really nails this […]
The hardest part about switching to a Mac was the serious hoops it would have taken me to retain Winamp as my music player. The Mac adds a third inevitability to fans of music with local libraries: Death, taxes, and iTunes. iTunes has been a bulky mess for years, especially when compared to a minimal […]
I’ve had 20 minutes with Spotify Free (disclosure: it was a Klout Perk) and it, so far, has been incredible. With millions of tracks on demand at pretty good quality, no wonder it took so long to reach the States. I may toss some invites out later as I receive them (depending on how many […]
It’s pretty rare when a band pumps out albums in back-to-back years. It’s even more rare when it’s a band that I like that does that. Well, Tantric has delivered with Mind Control, the reconstituted band’s followup to The End Begins, released last April. The End Begins was a second debut for Tantric, which had […]
the girl Riot asked over Twitter: “[W]hat songs -move- you?” Needless to say, I’m a sucker for “moving” music, and 140 characters can’t do my list justice, so here we go (with last.fm links to listen if possible): Am I Ever Gonna Change? by Extreme. Yes, I fully realize this is the “More Than Words” […]
Back in July I put together a little list of “stuff I like.” It’s been a few months, so I think I’ll do another round. FriendFeed Real-time. It’s friggin’ amazing is what it is. This launched a few weeks ago and it has helped increase my FriendFeed usage substantially. It partially fills the void that […]
The machine I use at work to stream my music over iTunes has been offline since I moved offices, so I’ve been taking a lot to Pandora in recent weeks. I’ve crafted up a pretty sweet station of chillout music, seeded with Enigma, Blue Stone, and BT so far. (I call the station Love, Sensuality, […]
I’ve been taking a closer look at my last.fm statistics, and it’s been interesting watching the trends evolve. Most notably, there is definitely evidence of my trending away from a smooth jazz/newage/Weather Channel phase back to a more mainstream hard rock selection of music again.
I’m dusting off the cobwebs here in my WordPress administration panel…been a few days. These are busy times — and they’ve been largely chronicled on Twitter. Last night was our regularly scheduled blogger/tweeter meetup at Gene’s Haufbrau just west of the Ashley. Great times as always. Eugene and I kicked some butt in pool, and […]
