a new series of posts and geotic's new project
i have come to the not-so-startling conclusion that i have much too much music that remains unlistened-to. trying to maintain something resembling a role in an upstart musical blog, along with having various musical interests (and lots of similarly interested friends that like to share) means i have a lot of good material in my iTunes library with a play count of zero. This combined with the remaining 7 days of vacation i have left has led me to start an Album-a-Day series of posts where i write about the things i haven't seriously listened to yet, like Cosmogramma (Flying Lotus), Teen Dream (Beach House), My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy (Kanye West), Sunset Tree (The Mountain Goats), The Age of Adz (Sufjan Stevens) and 4 x 4 = 12 (Deadmau5).
i feel that music blogging, just like hosting a personal youtube channel dedicated to narrated videogame walkthroughs, has a certain amount of egoistic value associated with it. i mean, you post about music, tell people its really awesome, and urge them to spend their money on it. on one hand a discussion of culture and art, on the other maybe a power trip of personal taste. that isn't my aim here. hopefully you will read (or not read) my blurbs about albums and hopefully you will follow (or follow) the download links to various tracks i post with them. if you have any albums i should listen to, let me know at firstname.lastname@example.org. happy reading!
Also: Geotic (AKA Baths AKA Post-Foetus AKA Will Wiesenfeld AKA one of CC's personal heroes) has a new album. Please donate, download and listen HERE. Its great listening. Maybe i'll talk about it heheh
