13 Dec 2013, 21:14 by BartGeneralWith another year at a close it's time for my favorite sort of self indulgence: lists! Lots of good releases that I suspect will stay in rotation. 2012 was a banner year for my favorites & new discoveries and 2013 proved no different. Almost nothing I heard was outright disappointing. Even Al Jourgensen drank his coffee and tried this time around. Splitting this list in three parts, the honorary mentions will be on the last segment so if you're offended I didn't include The Arcade Fire, just be patient.
15. Earthless – From The Ages (Tee Pee)
You know that old adage, the one about how writing about music is like dancing about architecture? San Diego’s own Earthless are why that was coined and a tempting compulsion to stop my writing right here and forget trying to describe what their music is all about. The average song (yes, I did the calculations) is 15.75 minutes long. A little daunting on surface level - - they’re not trying to climb mountains with their all-instrumental storytelling…

6 Jan 2012, 05:21 by braholicpunkTop 10 (or so) Albums for the Year 2011
With another year coming to a close, it is time to sit back and refelct on what has happened. We saw "occupy" take on a new meaning as the proletariat class attempted to right the wrongs committed by an unregulated financial monster. We witnessed Google strive to become the next behemoth of social media, aspiring to do to Facebook what it had done to Myspace and Friendster. We marked the death of a visionary, only to see his legend live on with the unveiling of a disappointment to most, the iPhone 4S, not 5. And in music, you watched the rise of both talented (Adele) and talentless (Rebecca Black) singers, to successes no longer thought possible in the music industry, thanks to both viral videos and an ever more discerning ear from the public. Again it is time for me to attempt to sift through the masses of shit, and deliver the golden kernels of joy that I thought delivered something unique in a year laden with letdowns. …
