13 Apr 2010, 02:21 by earthcrossingRecently I hit '1300' artists in my library, so I thought I'd make a list of them all for posterity! Of course, I already removed one of those artists frmo my library during this process (it was my music, but under the wrong name...) and there are others I can probably get rid of immediately. But I want to take care in doing so.
Anyway, without further ado...this is the result of coming on up 5 years of scrobbling here at Last.fm, and away from it (on iPod). There have been times when I wasn't able to scrobble, so a lot of data wasn't recorded then. But other than those times, this is what we have...
* A Camp (7s)
* A Perfect Circle (210s)
* A Streetlight Song (1)
* Abbe May (88s)
* Abbe May and the Rockin' Pneumonia (5s)
* Abra Moore (7s)
* Ace of Base (2s)
* AC/DC (64s)
* Adam Cohen (2s)
* Adele (2s)
* Aerosmith (8s)
* Afghan Whigs (1)
* AFI (29s)
* Aimee Allen (22s)
17 Mar 2010, 17:08 by SI_FailedArt is always convoluted, and if its personal stuff, which it almost always is, (let’s just say that it is) – then it’s really convoluted. It’s not like watching the entire season of a dodgy soap opera, because that stuff is really black & white and not particularly subjective, it’s fairly predictable – it is what it is.
With “art” it’s a snippet of a much larger narrative. It becomes vague and interpretive to the audience. For its creators it’s a masterbatory and self serving exercise.
But I’d prefer for an artist or band to write/make/create/draw/design things that are personal and find an audience by its own merits, rather than shitty formulatestuff that become just that – stuff; disposable stuff.
Anyway, this comp is kinda of about that, but more so emo/post-hardcore bands that do write long winded convoluted songs, some are pretty easy to understand; others are like that snippet thing.
01 Knapsack – Balancing Act
02 Cap'n Jazz – Little League
03 Cursive – Dispenser
15 Mar 2010, 22:18 by JyotiMishraWoo - loads of requests tonight: Russian Circles, MSTRKRFT, Refused, Venetian Snares. But I still managed to cram in craploads of brand-new music as well.
The best from the new was Swanton Bombs' 'Who's Asking.' I love the rawness of this track, I love the middle bit guitar riffery. There's a lot to be said for eschewing the wanky solo in favour of the cranking rhythm, The Kinks knew that and so do Swanton Bombs, even though they sound fuck-all like The Kinks.
The best old track has to be Venetian Snares' 'Einstein-Rosen Bridge.' I'm sure I've had it as a best old track before, it's so utterly awesome. And, as old as it is, it still makes people look up and do good WTF?? faces. Pure loveliness!
And, tonight, I broke all my normal Bzangy rules by playing not one but three tracks currently on Radio One. The first was Wiley because I love it and, hey, it's nice to have (a bit) of my song back in the charts! :-)

Wednesday's best new track was by Akira Kiteshi and it was the awesome 'Glitch Pt 1&2.' As soon as I first (illegally) heard this stuttering, grunting, groinking track, I nipped onto iTunes and bought the single. Wonderful, rich electronic music.
The best old track was by tonight's featured artist, The Hidden Cameras. Although it could have been any of them, I have to go with 'A Miracle' as this song has helped me through some dark times. Joel Gibb's voice, the beautiful lyrics and the silky strings add up to one of my favourite ever recordings.
This is what I played:
Bad Religion - American Jesus
Pedro the Lion - Foregone Conclusions
Aardvarck - Untitled
Aesop Rock - Zodiaccupuncture
Black Flag - Louie Louie
The Narrator - SurfJew
Loefah - disko rekah
Fireside - Left Rustle
Friendly Fires - Jump In The Pool
The Cramps - Goo Goo Muck

Wooo - what a packed night! And loads of great requests, old and new!
Speaking of which, the best new track was 'Gold For Bread' by Blitzen Trapper. It's off their very poppy new album, 'Furr,' and it was released last week. Check it out for singalong loveliness!
The best old track was 'Observer' by Gary Numan. I was a teenage Numanoid and it's pretty obvious that his synthiness has stuck with me since then in the music I make myself. Where would synthpop, electro and all their modern derivatives be without Numan's huge influence? 'Observer' is just perfect.
