A blog on gigs, music, art and London.

Saturday, 31 May 2008


Following on from the last post - another great place to find excellent new music is the eMusic website.

It is a subscription based service, allowing you to download and keep MP3 files from artists on some of the best alternative record labels around. I have the 100 tracks per month download package. It can be very addictive.....

My downloads refreshed on Saturday and I have gone for the following:

Dirty Three 'Whatever You Love, You Are'
Spaghetti Western String Co. 'Lull And Clatter'
Devotchka 'A Mad And Faithful Telling'
Bon Iver 'For Emma, Forever Ago'
Beach House 'Devotion'
Tape 'Luminarium' (a real find - shades of late Talk Talk crossed with quiet electronica)
Vaughan Williams ‘Symphony No. 5’

Alan Hovhaness ‘Sympphonies No. 4, 20 & 53’

Edvard Grieg’s Sigurd Josalfar (after hearing it for the first time on Radio 3 earlier in the morning)

And I still have 27 downloads left.

Let the listening begin!
