Hi! No one's updated in a while so I thought I would post with a few presents that user: thistimeofnight and I uploaded last night for community: sharemusic.
Arcade Fire - Age of Consent http://s61.yousendit.com/d.aspx?id=0MJDSQE45M41C0HJP8LP6KBJ15
Kings of Convenience - Homesick http://s22.yousendit.com/d.aspx?id=18OJH4EADGKIP1EVVVO42LAAY7

Oh and I'm attempting to make a sleep mix at the moment to cure my insomnia so if you have any suggestions of mellow/relaxing music I would love to hear them! (I realise I may of asked some people this already). I already have Nick Drake, Air and Kevin Shields on there.

For those of you who have an interest in Japanese music (and I know there are one or two of you in the audience), have a look at Keikaku.net for band profiles, album reviews, and recommended artists.
I'm on the staff, so I am somewhat biased, but it's definitely worth checking out!

It recommends music based on your favourite bands.

|canceled_heaven||01:13 am - Mercury Music Prize|
Any thoughts on the Mercury music prize? I didn't like Seth Lakeman, I personally didn't think that 'Kitty Jay' was particularly innovative but that's just my personal opinion. But I enjoyed the performances from The Go! Team and Bloc Party.
PS off topic but has anyone else heard of Cocorosie?

Greetings everyone, sorry it's been so long but as you can tell the community has kind of been on a hiatus period. Unfortunatly the mixed cd distribution has not worked out like I would have hoped - but we can maybe still make it work so get mixing and reviewing!
So how was everyone's summer been? Are there any gigs and/or festivals that you've been to? Any decent albums, new band recommendations for the communtiy please post if you do, hopefully we can get this community up and running again. :D

I recently received a very cool mix CD from </span></a>jasmineemily,
so here's my review (I'll use the style that Rachel did for her review). </span>
( track by trackCollapse )

While the mixes are being made/distributed and reviewed I thought I would post something to the community. So how do most of you discover new music? Through the media, word of mouth, gigs? And what do people think of the music press? Generally I believe music magazines have interesting articles and are useful as buying guides but are taken far to seriously. I also think its ridiculous how magazines such as Q are mainly made up of lists such as the 100 guitar solos of all time.
Current Mood: lazy
Current Music: Satellite Party-Ultra payloaded Satellite Party

Don't let the CD mix club thing die! I'd really love to read some more reviews.
Also, if anyone (like me) thought that the last Polyphonic Spree album was a bit rubbish, try Architecture In Helsinki, a strange band from Australia that play weird but really catchy pop music. Seriously recommended.
Current Mood: tired
