My apologies dear readers for this six month late entry. A lot of things have happened in 2014 that have really forced me to put music on the back-burner. Having said that however I do think 2013 was one of the better years in the last five or so as far as music was concerned. So many fantastic records really made it difficult to order my list so whenever I got a bit of free time i painstakingly chopped and changed until I arrived at this seemingly end result. I hope you enjoy. Let me know what you agree/disagree with or give us a shout as to what records I may have missed last year. Cheers :)
#50 Akron/Family - Sub Verses
I've always been aware of this Portlandian three-piece experimental rock group but never really took notice until their fantastic previous album 'S/T II:The Cosmic Birth and Journey of Shinju TNT'. That record had this perfect balance of heavy psych and soft ethereal folk that permeated with a real spiritual force. …

7. Dez. 2013, 8:10 von Confessions87What a brilliant year for new music. I seem to say this every year, but the standard this year was truly exceptional.
Or perhaps it was the same as every year. Maybe it's all down to how much time and effort and patient listening you invest over the course of those twelve months. I'm a firm believer that if you have a keen ear for sound - and are willing to explore the vast multitudes of those sounds - that you'll develop a cohesive way of finding nearly something to like about the majority of music you come across. The familiarity that often comes with repeated listens is linked closely to one's personal enjoyment of it. Somehow the more you listen to something, the more you obtain from it and draw from it.
It seems that we are all becoming more and more a part of an online music community. The websites that publish daily reviews and news have allowed us all to evolve into something of refined connoisseurs of contemporary recorded music.

It's been a busy month, but then, that's been every month lately hasn't it? Not too much excitement this month, mostly just dissertation, clinical work, and preparations for moving. Oh, and Pacific Rim, which was so good we went to see it twice in the space of two weeks. Though I wouldn't put it up there with the best films I've ever seen, I'd definitely rank it near (or even at) the top of "films that demand viewing in theatres" and "films that are the most fun." The soundtrack is awesome, too, and the main theme leads off this month's mix.
As far as the rest goes, there's some promising new material from Okkervil River, a fun track from Mikal Cronin's excellent MCII, a random Beck single, and some strong electronic stuff toward the end. King Creosote has taken the mantle of "most prolific artist I listen to," with this month's track coming from a…
