Nov 25 2007, 17:04 di rantamayI love making these lists and looking at what new bands and music I've discovered over the year. And especially how I can see this all on my Last.fm music charts. Music is such a huge, HUGE part of my life, I can pinpoint exactly certain times of my life with a track, album or band. No music, no life indeed. I'd rather eat the same dish for the rest of my life than be starved of music. Likewise, I think it a far, far worse fate to be deaf than blind. No music for the rest of my life? God forbid! Before I go on to list my music, a couple of significant music-related happenings. TWO iPods died on me this year. My first, a 4th generation white 20GB iPod, then my second, a second-hand 30GB fifth generation black iPod. It churns when I try to turn it on. Sob. My heart is broken, my love is gone. 2007 marks my second year as an emusic subscriber! And my first year as a Last.fm user.
And now, my music discoveries and rediscoveries, in no particular order, just what comes to mind first:
Nov 23 2007, 20:24 di VenerableBeanSean inspired me to make a list of my top albums. This isn't a top albums of all time per say, because that concept of “all time” makes me think of death and freaks me out.
Rather, this list just reflects the albums that have had the most impact on my life at a given moment. They're in no particular order, and each has a memory attached for your enjoyment.
Of course, from the very start, I have to separate the band that has had THE most influence on my life thus far, and probably forever. There are certain bands that just click with you. They make you see life in a special sort of way; in a way that you rarely see and only lasts for a short period of time. A lot of people don't get this band, and a lot of people do. The point is, they may not even be that spectacular as a band, and yes there are better bands out there, but Wilco unlocked something inside of me from the very start. So in their honor, they get a separate little place here.

Mar 5 2007, 0:28 di sprucemoose5Top 5* Listened Songs in the past 3 months:
*they were all whiskeytown, so i did top 5 from different artists
1. 16 Days
2. Round Here
3. Breathe Me
4. 9 Crimes
Top 5 CD's I've aquired in the last 6 months :
1. Pneumonia- I am getting into alt-country and it's really scaring me, but this album is truly fantastic if you like Ryan Adams and if you have an appreciation for music that isn't terrible.
2. Strangers Almanac- I can't talk about Pneumonia and not mention Strangers Almanac in the same category. They are very close on my most played list, and this one certainly doesn't disappoint either.
3. Colour the Small One- her vocals are superb and really relaxed. this is a great cd to listen to when you're tired and want to space out a bit.
4. Teaser and the Firecat- my mother gave me her appreciation for Cat Stevens at a young age, and I am finally taking advantage of her musical knowledge. This is a fantastic record from Mr. …
Mag 27 2006, 22:02 di SuperNauticaPneumonia was Whiskeytown's swan song, recorded in 1999 and finally released in 2001. It was touted as the band's Sgt. Pepper's, w/ a rough mix circulated on the internet during the time the album languished in non-label limbo. When it was eventually released, it was a much different version than the one on the net. Songs had been changed, the mix had been spit-shined, and guest musicians abounded. Caitlin Cary, when asked what she thought about the released version, said that she preferred the more 'organic' original mix but gave Ryan Adams credit for sticking with the album, working on it, and making sure it got released. She also said she understood the reasons for the more polished mix as the album was to be Whiskeytown's grand statement. Adam's compatriotEthan Johns (producer of Gold) produced as well as played drums, bass, mandolin, mandocello, keyboards and guitar on the record. Whiskeytown, as it existed when the basic tracks were layed down, was Adams (guitar, vocals, piano, harmonica)…
