    I absolutely hate rating music. I hate dating it too, but rating… That’s just wrong. I mean, how can you compare the minimalist beauty of Taylor Deupree to the pounding beats of Chris Clark? What’s the scale here? Last year, in Headphone Commute’s Best of 2008, I attempted to tier my favorites into “Absolute Must“, “The Very Best“, and “The Essentials“, and even that, of course, is rating music. This year, I wanted to select my favorite releases from each category – but then I was faced with another dilemma – lumping music into genres is probably even worse than rating it! All this negativity has been clouding over me until in a bout of frustration I came out with the answer!

    And so, I present you with 15 lists of 10 favorite releases unified by a unique theme in alphabetical order by artist. That’s 150 albums of the year! You will see that these entries tend to fall within similar styles anyway…

  • Headphone Commute Reviews (July)

    19 Jul 2009, 14:21 by liftmuziek

    Looks like I've been falling behind even further. Something is happening, and I'm wondering if it's just me, or is the time really slipping away between the snow and the sprouted greens and the steaming asphalt and the fallen leaves. All I have between now and then are these words, and between the words is always the music. Meanwhile, I was able to squeeze out a free mix for your enjoyment, compiled of some of my favorite Intelligent Breakcore tracks. So point your clickers here for a free download. Besides that, I am also super excited to present you with not just one, but two label profiles covering some of my favorite music. There is the n5MD and the forever beautiful Merck. Click the banners below for a full label profile and interviews available only on reviews.headphonecommute.com. As usual, I would appreciate a comment or two, and recommend that you Subscribe to RSS Feed.

  • FNM 2008 dzeń 3 recenzja

    1 Jul 2008, 11:59 by jmvarelse

    Ze względów materialnych, a także ze względu własnego gustu muzycznego (bo po cholerę mi karnet 3-dniowy jak nie trawię ani Lidella, ani Deadbeata) w tym roku (zresztą jak i w poprzednim) na Festiwal NowaMuzyka zawitałem tylko jednodniowo. A, jako że Prefuse'a raczyli ujawnić dopiero kiedy już miałem bilet, wybór padł na niedzielę.

    Do Szarej trafiłem tylko na półtorej setu, nie wiem zresztą, kto grał, bo programu Szarej nie znałem. Pierwszy wykonawca grał jakiś eksperymentalny ambient/drone, co nie zawsze dawało się wytrzymać, chociaż niektóre momenty miał dobre. Swoją drogą byłem świadkiem (symbolicznej?) sceny, jak to przyszła na ów set dwójka ludzi z dzieckiem. Po paru minutach wychodzą. Dziecko z zatkanymi uszami. Morał z tego taki, że edukację muzyczną dzieci od experimentalu zaczynać nie można, choćby to był i sam Edgard Varese.

    Drugi set z kolei dryfował w stronę IDM-u, chwilami przypominając nawet The Marcia Blaine School For Girls. …
  • Rotations (Mar 3)

    3 Mar 2008, 01:56 by liftmuziek

    I shut down the lines, turned over the locks, silenced the clocks, and took a vacation. That was a week ago, and now seems like last year. Meanwhile, I had to take a step back from rotations, even though the music kept spinning on my mind. Thus a month went by, and now I'm back with another installment. All that doesn't mean that I haven' been keeping busy - I was able to document an exclusive interview with none other than The Flashbulb. So make sure to point your clickers there and read!
