Hi everybody, I'm still alive!
Eythian - thanks very much for all your work, it's great that everything still seems to be working after the switchover. I'll update the DNS later today so if everything falls apart you'll know who to blame.
I'll add a VERY good word for The Decemberists - The King Is Dead!
Loved it at first listen when streaming the pre-release, ordered the CD+DVD set immediately (thanks xmas amazon vouchers!), been playing it A LOT since it arrived last Sa…Craig - congrats on your fantasy success! I'd quite like to have a go at american ff but haven't really been following the game very closely for a few years, so my picks would probably all be rubbish now. Maybe next season? It'll be an excuse to wea…Merry Xmas emusers!(Quote)
Why? I assume you're using iTunes, but you can change the default format to mp3 or a few other things in the preferences.
Although I've been an Apple fan (ish) for a looong time, there's no need to help them lock you in :-)I like their track 'obscura' on the recent WIRE magazine cover CD.
Almost led me to get some of their stuff from emu last month, if I'd been staying I would definitely have picked up at least one of the albums.
This is the sort of thing …Some interesting choices, never heard of Perfume Genius or Fences and never actually heard Tallest Man.
I'll have to start trying to come up with a top 10 myself soon.
As for Bon Iver, have you heard in My Top Ten of 2010 Comment by xtrev November 2010Aha! Discovered the 'trick' is to actually be lucky enough to happen to have the main black friday page open as the countdown runs out and then click to buy something in the few microseconds before it sells out.
If tha…BigD, thanks but it's amazon UK I'm talking about - no such thing as a deal of the day over here :-(
It just seemed odd that whenever I looked there were NO current or available deals. I appreciate they'll be going fast but to see none a…We have a few here somewhere...
Here's a US one from last year - should have been updated in Nov/Dec if they stuck to their recent timetable...
in Lyin' sacks o chit! Comment by xtrev November 2010Ah, I see where you were coming from now kargatron.
Although to be honest I probably have actually spent more time acquiring and reading about new music than I have listening to it recently.
I get too many interruptions at work some days…Kargatron, I was still on an old 90-a-month plan at emu and over the last year or so (for various reasons) I seem to have spent less time actually listening to the albums I get.
I first realised the problem when coming up with year end charts …Well, had a re-think and cancelled my eMu account instead of putting it on hold.
I was thinking about cancelling before all the recent upheaval anyway, it was only the amusing appeal of being given more in 'bonus' money than I was paying that …(Quote)
I'm not sure it is now. I think those days have gone.
Now that higher prices have become the norm I can't see the labels backing away from that anytime soon.
They can sell from their own sites and/or through amazon, itu…Well, despite having decided to stick with emu for another year, the latest farce of the 'big indies' leaving has almost changed my mind.
My annual grandfathered 90 per month (with them basically paying me to stay under the new scheme) is now …False alarm!
Site working again now.
See you all here tomorrow when it really does break :-)
