Ago 30 2010, 17h18 por Babs_05The idea is for a journal for every month listing new albums I listen to and what I think so that when I review the year's music in December, I will have a handy reminder. I will add to this as the month goes on. Suggestions welcome.

Dez 30 2008, 5h15 por moonstreamTop 3 Discoveries of 2008
1. Mackintosh Braun
Album: The Sound (2008)
Each track is light, airy, atmospheric and fresh. The beat is pleasant, it keeps you going. I especially loved listening to The Sound on my mp3 player because it is a perfect album for a walk in the city. Needless to say, I had The Sound for at least three months on my mp3 player :D
I also absolutely love their new song Nothing Else Is Real
Keep it up, guys, your music is great.
2. Dirty Elegance
Album: Finding Beauty In The Wretched (2007? ahhh whatever :))
I’ve never heard anything as magical and dark. Scratches, soft-spoken lyrics, layers of various strange sounds covering the melody like autumn leafs…
3. The LK
Album: Vs. The Snow (2008)
No comments—just pure happiness.
The title of the album explains the songs really well. The LK makes it possible to face the dull and gray days of winter with bright colors, awesome lyrics and a feeling of spring hidden in the melodies of their songs.
Top Music that kept me going this year
Out 24 2008, 21h08 por MackintoshBraunWe're working on our next album and wanted to give you all a free download to tide you over until we're done...
"Nothing Else Is Real" is the name of the song, and we hope you all like it.
Download it, give it to your friends, play it for your mom, she'll love it...
Much more soon.
Out 17 2008, 14h23 por MackintoshBraunHello all, so even though we want to post our new song "Nothing Else Is Real" on LastFM, we can't do it quite yet. But for now you can check out our brand new song that will be on our next album that we're still recording. We wanted to give you all something new to listen to while we continue to finish the album. Hope you enjoy, and let us know what you think.
Out 14 2008, 4h37 por MackintoshBraunWe just wrote the music that is being featured in the latest NHL Hockey '09 commercial. Pretty cool stuff. Check it out, you might be surprised. Much more to come soon. Amazing live show. New Album. We'll keep you posted.
