    This is awesome.

    I mean it does look cool, but damned if I can read what it says.

    Also the file name doesn't help either.

    I know it's old news and I know it's not extensively indie but I do want to shout out that I just purchased Minus the Bear's Planet of Ice and....damn. I love their previous cd's, but this path they're going down is just phenomenal.

    Seriously, you call that singing? This is a joke.

    Works much much better on album than as a single, I think.
    But I don't know what to say to people that don't like TV On The Radio.

    Why? is fantastic. Really great lyricist.

    And when I finally do it
    I wanna do the dirt like the dead leaves do
    and if you do leave the earth
    when the earth leaves you
    cold and hard as a marble table top with nothing on top
    there's no hip hip-hop hooray
    heaping Heaven's golden-barbed gateway
    no bright confetti high-step march ticker tape parade
    There's no mound of clouds to lounge on
    no mound of clouds to lounge on


    Only someone like Why? could take a whole song about wanting to commit suicide and not make it sound whiny and melodramatic. Hymie's Basement, his collaboration with Fog, was pretty ace too. Check out 21st Century Pop Song.

    Dear Science is awesome and tight and also shit hot.

    Cookie Mountain had its moments but sounded like someone with a stomach full of static jammed two fingers down their throat, this time they decided hey that thing we did last album was cool so now let's just peel it down to a series of simple recombinant elements tied together with vocals and oh we can make it political as well because the mechanical structure of the songs can be taken as an appeal to rationality in an uncertain world.

    So good.

    It's a totally different animal. The static and ultra-dense production have given way to rigid beatbox-ish drumming and electronica backup on a lot of the songs, and Adebimpe's vocals are way more prominent.

    I couldn't take most of Cookie Mountain either but I love this.

    I get so bored so quickly by them. I saw them live with Portugal. The Man, and we left after their third song.

    But God Damn do I love me some Portugal. The Man. They never fail to put on a great performance.

    He did a string sessions a while back and that is all that I have of him, he had a weird song on it comparing his love to that of various superheroes's love interests, took me a while to realize that. No Suprise is another song of his that i enjoy.


    Also people need to listen to Fields its suprising and sad to me that not many people had heard of them.

    Girl Talk is cool, but I'm always embarrassed to listen to it when friends come round, because I can never remember when it's going to break into hardcore rap.

    Also, I'm pretty sure someone mentioned Late of the Pier in here and I just heard 'Focker' by them (well, watched the video clip to be precise), is the rest of the album similar? Should I get it?

    So, in case any of you haven't heard yet, Muxtapes is relaunching, but it's not what it was.
    Muxtape is relaunching as a service exclusively for bands, offering an extremely powerful platform with unheard-of simplicity for artists to thrive on the internet. Musicians in 2008 without access to a full time web developer have few options when it comes to establishing themselves online, but their needs often revolve around a common set of problems. The new Muxtape will allow bands to upload their own music and offer an embeddable player that works anywhere on the web, in addition to the original muxtape format. Bands will be able to assemble an attractive profile with simple modules that enable optional functionality such as a calendar, photos, comments, downloads and sales, or anything else they need. The system has been built from the ground up to be extended infinitely and is wrapped in a template system that will be open to CSS designers. There will be more details soon. The beta is still private at the moment, but that will change in the coming weeks.

    I realize this is a somewhat radical shift in functionality, but Muxtape’s core goals haven’t changed. I still want to challenge the way we experience music online, and I still want to work to enable what I think is the most interesting aspect of interconnected music: discovering new stuff.

    Thank to you everyone who made Muxtape the incredible place it was in its first phase, it couldn’t have happened without your mixes. The industry will catch up some day, it pretty much has to.

    Preceding that is a long and troublesome story about legal trouble and the RIAA. Long story short, there was just too much pressure from above, and Justin decided that if he did everything the labels and RIAA wanted him to do, his site wouldn't be anything like what he wanted, and he didn't have any money for legal actions. So he's relaunching as a band service.

    It's better news than I expected, but still a little disappointing.
