So we are a quarter way into this year and i think it has started really well.
These are some of my picks of the year, so far. Some you will know, some you may not.
My way, way overdue list. I wasn’t even going to do one this year considering just how little new music I listened to last year, but I’ve found myself repeatedly going back and referring to old lists and I figured I should put this here just for my own reference. So read on for my favorites from last year, and by all means, add your own.
Just…. just watch it. The whole thing. It gets better and better.
Over at Bill’s Board, Bill brought up that it’d been five years since we last listed our favorite songs, and wondered how much the lists had changed, if any. So I ask the same of you guys.
Here’s the original thread: http://www.thescrabbled.com/posts/59060-Post-Your-1-Favorite-Songs-of-All-Time?page=1
What’s still there for you? What’s changed or different? Read on for the hyperbolic and overly colorful novella that is my list.
What are everyone’s thoughts on crowdfunding? The movie based on the TV show Veronica Mars has reached it’s goal of 2 million dollars in 8 hours. I donated, but that’s beside the point.

my band started a kickstarter to get our album released on vinyl. Help us if you can, or want.

if you like it. back it here
i have only heard the single so far, which is a grower. This will be my accompaniment while i pack and catalogue
Two hours of eerie, dirgey, noisy awesomeness.
In case you missed it, Snoop’s changed his name and is coming out with a new album with Diplo/Major Lazer. If it’s anywhere near as good as this single, it’ll be outstanding.
and he was not even drunk or stoned
You had me at “best Radiohead album since Kid A,” NPR. You had me at “best Radiohead album since Kid A.”
supposedly a whole new direction for them. Hearing more electronics apart from that sounds like Sigur Ros. Whis is a great thing. Cannot wait for the show at The Mann
Thought some of you might appreciate this
I generally don’t give much thought to celebrity deaths, but this one’s really upsetting.
I am thinking this would be appreciated here more than most places
Let’s here ‘em. If I get a bunch of responses, maybe I’ll throw them up on a scrabbled mix.
Filling the whole in my heart left in The Advantage’s 6 year absense, Bit Brigade not only covers whole NES soundtracks, but does so while some dude beats the game from start to finish. I’m so in love with this.
I know she is no longer a new thing but I just wondered what the consensus was on her. I know the stupid limeys love her and I can’t help[ but wonder if that is because of some Adele run off (eewww).
Stupid cool. Even if you hate the second piece, stick around (or skip forward to) for their brief cover of Cage’s Living Room Music afterwards.
Need I say more?
Portishead’s Geoff Barrow’s goosebump-inducing new hip hop project.
The official list of all releases pressed for the annual Record Store Day. It’s April 21 (which is also the date that John’s Roast Pork starts serving on Saturdays).
I tournament bracket I can get behind.
I would like to try Primus out. What two, and only two, albums should I listen to first?
Don’t give me crap about only allowing two. I really just want one to start with, but I’m willing to give you a second vote.
I’m skeptical, but intrigued.
