5 Jan 2011, 16:33 by mmsiYear 2010 in albums... At first it seemed like not many great records were released on 2010. Months passed, list remained short... then, just before the year changed, the list started growing longer. What a race to the end. And with what great albums!
In other news, year proceeded strongly with presence of Spotify. I downgraded to Unlimited subscription, as there was no need for offline playlists nor mobile device usage. eMusic's charging model changed from points to euros, and I decided to keep it for now. I use Mobbler a lot for music on the move.
Here are my album highlights for 2010 in the order of discovering them:
Living Sacrifice - The Infinite Order
In Vain - Mantra
In Mourning - Monolith
Year of No Light - Ausserwelt
65daysofstatic - We Were Exploding Anyway
Long Distance Calling - Satellite Bay
Berry Weight - Music For Imaginary Movies
Noisia - Split the Atom
Submotion Orchestra - EP
The Ocean - Anthropocentric

Welcome back to the end of 2010. I’m your host, Captain Gaylord, and… okay yeah, that was lame. Anyway, yes! On to part two of this silly 100 countdown of my favorite albums of the year. Excited? I don’t blame you, neither am I. Well, that’s enough aimless rambling for now, let’s just go ahead and get down to business. “Finally,” says the reader…
80. Robyn – Body Talk
What with all the clamor about Robyn being the next big pop star and all that, it was quite easy to be skeptical… and after giving Body Talk a few dozen listens, I can honestly say that yeah, she just might. She harnesses that oh-so-important skill of singing about the most asinine things possible, but actually getting you into it. How many female singers go on about boy troubles, to which all you can think in response is “I don’t really give a rat’s ass what’s going on with you…
2 Jan 2011, 13:14 by TechForzeToo much to listen in 2010, there is just too much music =)
Got more into Ambient, found Ultimae Records (great catalog!)
Here's a selection of my 2010 in music:
Best albums of 2010 (random order):
Hans Zimmer - Inception (OST)
Best movie of 2010 and an awesome soundtrack!
Jesse Somfay - A Catch in the Voice (Techno)
From 2009, this album hooked me with the first track, dreamy depressed sounds!
The Flashbulb - Arboreal (IDM)
Great new album of The Flashbulb, totally different of his epic 2008 album, I dislike the sometimes lack of quality of some parts, but this is a must hear!
Alan Fitzpatrick - Shadows In The Dark (Techno)
'Dark' monotome, great release on Drumcode, best techno album/producer of 2010.
Asura - 360 (Ambient)

15 Dec 2010, 07:52 by oruwudeadmau5's latest album 4x4=12 was hotly anticipated for several months, but at release of the track list, my excitement dwindled. The problem I find is that it is simply a compilation album, since I have already scrobbled half the album, and some songs even more than a year earlier (The earliest of which was deadmau5 - Everything Before first scrobbled in April of 2009).
My biggest complaint with the album, however, are the vocals. deadmau5 has had several brilliant vocal tracks, but none of these do it for me. Sofi Needs A Ladder which almost completely ruins You need a ladder and dropped all the Zelda tribute clips (albeit this could be because of copyright) is my peak concern, but I also don't know why Joel thought Raise Your Weapon would be a better use of his Dub5tepthingie project. It just doesn't fit.
Joel was quoted saying "To do an album, I'd need to take six months off. But the touring takes up all my time." We, the fans, love the touring…
14 Dec 2010, 21:47 by bozzlerFri 10 Dec – Deadmau5, Calvin Harris, Magnetic Man, Stanton Warriors, Zane Lowe
This gig was so energetic.
As we walked into the venue there was an unnamed chap doing a DJ set to get the place warmed up.
Magnetic Man were the first support act on, and they were fantastic.
I could tell that at least 75% of the audience must have been MM fans as well as Deadmau5 fans. Everyone enjoyed their set.
Zane Lowe gave us a DJ set next, which was very high energy and very impressive. At this point I had to move back within the venue because I neede air (!)
When deadmau5 himself came on it was unreal.
He played a good mixture of new material from 4x4=12 as well as a good handful from For Lack of a Better Name and the crowd favourite song, I Remember.
The light show was just awesome, with graphics behind him, on his cube stage and also on his newest mau5head.
The last song he played without the mau5head, and before leaving the stage he walked to the front to thank everyone.
