Mar 28 2009, 8h13 por eardrumsI am liveblogging on Eardrums (http://www.eardrumsmusic.com) today (Saturday 28th March) about the new Eardrums compilation "Birdsongs, Beesongs", and maybe, just maybe, I'll be finished with the first volume and release it today. Lots of new songs from lots of great bands, and it's all free and legal to download. I have only planned the tracklisting for the first volume by now, but I have received over 80 songs, so you can expect a 4 volumed compilation. Wonderful cover-art too! On the liveblog-session, I will give you some previews of the songs, answer questions, show you the artwork and you can comment and interact all the way through the session. I will also reveal the full artist-list for all the volumes.
Artists on the first volume will be:
Hari and Aino (SE) - new, unreleased
Cor'delle (AU) - new?
The Starfolk (US) - new, unreleased (the singers from The Owls)
Hexicon (UK) - new, unreleased
Monzano (NO) - new, unreleased (main band of Sjur from The Little Hands Of Asphalt)

Music I Couldn't Live Without
- Their music walked me through the whole of this year, through good times and bad times. Also, their music provided me with inspiration for writing, my greatest passion. Eternally Missed, Easily, Hoodoo, Glorious, Stockholm Syndrome, Dead Star and Futurism hold special meanings for me.
2. Blue October
- The heart wrenching Congratulations didn't catch my attention at first, but when it did, I fell in love with it. I love Sound of Pulling Heaven Down, X-Amount of Words and Drop, too.
3. Greg Laswell
- He is an amazing songwriter, and he has a wonderful voice. Comes and Goes (In Waves) left a very deep impression on me.

Dez 30 2007, 9h38 por Mozo78I had a great time discovering and listening to music in 2007. An excellent crop of new records were released in the past twelve months, and with the guidance of so many new information sources -- music blogs, editorially-heavy web merchants like emusic and boomkat.com, and especially my valued friends on last.fm -- I was inundated with new material all year long.
Here's my list of the records that provided the greatest listening thrills in 2007:
1.Andrew Bird - Armchair Apocrypha
After much anticipation, I was immediately impressed by this record when it arrived last March. Although the opening five-track sequence of its predecessor Andrew Bird & the Mysterious Production of Eggs was simply impossible to outshine, this record struck me as more consistently great from start to finish, with so many splendid sonic flourishes and fantastic songs. There are so many textural and melodic details in the music (filled by Bird's trademark fiddle…
Ago 1 2007, 11h33 por foafThis playlist is based on one that I've got set up in iTunes. "Lie In The Sound" is made up of bands with female singers and female singer/songwriters. It's pretty mellow and leans heavily towards the folk/country styles of music.
Unfortunately last.fm doesn't have tracks by some of the artists so I've added a few ring ins. Sometimes the track I wanted to put in wasn't available so I've picked one at random. Still I think this playlist stands up pretty well.
Lie In The Sound
Trespassers William - Lie in the Sound
Chapin Sisters - Don't Love You
Bachelorette - The End Of Things
The Owls - Air
Joanna Newsom - Emily
Kate Maki - Mid-March Blues
Jolie Holland - I Was Drunk At The Pulpit
Bic Runga - When I See You Smile
Hayley Hutchinson - Climb Through
Nina Nastasia - Jim's Room
Marissa Nadler - Diamond Heart
Jenny Owen Youngs - Fuck Was I
Rilo Kiley - The Execution of All Things
Jenny Lewis with The Watson Twins - Rise Up With Fists!!
Jim & Jennie And The Pinetops - st. helens
