You can download the new DangerDoom EP Occult Hymn for free from the Adult Swim website. By the sounds of things it wont be available for long, so best be quick. It features seven tracks (two of which are skits), one of which is Korn Dogz, a track that was made available to download via MySpace a couple of weeks back.
I haven't listened to it yet*, but I did listen to Korn Dogz a couple of weeks back and it's … [read more]
In an attempt to not bore the pants off you, today I have some snippets of news and thoughts…
Gnarls Barkley have deleted Crazy as a single. So, you can no longer buy the track Crazy on it's own. They claim that fans could get tired of the track (shock horror!) and that could in turn mean people don't go to their shows. [INITIATE CYNIC MODE...] I think it is just a way to make sure that anybody that has yet to purchase Crazy (all … [read more]
Last week I told you of a new discovery here in Australia; Gotye. You can find that entry here. Anyway, with the extreme power of the internet I managed to speak to Wally a few days ago, he very kindly gave me a copy of his latest album, so I figured it only fair to share my thoughts on the entire record.
If you cast your mind back to last week you'll remember there was a mention of exactly where in the mine-field … [read more]
Another five MySpace Music pages to share with you today. Just like last time, all of the artists and groups I feature have one thing (at least) in common; all have had less than 10,000 page-views. If you know of any artists on MySpace, with less than 10,000 page-views, that you think I should feature, please let me know. Aside from the page-views, the other things I look for are at least a bit of a bio (so I can give some detail in my … [read more]
Much has been said over the years with regards to artists releasing double albums, but the recent release of Red Hot Chili Peppers' double album Stadium Arcadium got me wondering bout this subject once more. Double albums; double the value or double the trouble?
Firstly let me clarify what a double albums is; a record released on two discs as the content will not fit on to one disc. Historically vinyl LPs were often released as double albums as vinyl discs could not hold as … [read more]
Decided to go for another not-so-new track this week…

A wizard with a sampler and Oz as in Australia. I am talking about someone that a lot of Australia seems to be talking about, but I hate to see the rest of the world miss out. I'm talking bout Gotye, apparently pronounced Go-tee-yeah. Gotye is 25-year-old Wally De Backer from Melbourne, Australia. He plays a multitude of instruments, can sing, and also produces all of his music from the the very house he lives in. On his MySpace page he lists his … [read more]
So, this blog is already one week old! Thanks to everyone that has read the entries, and even greater thanks to those people that have left me comments, you guys really are fuelling this thing.
Today I decided I'd feature the group that have remained at the top of my last.fm charts for a long time now; The Herbaliser. Since 8th February 2005 I've, apparently, listened to The Herbaliser 654 times – so they must be pretty good, right? Right!
Ollie Teeba and … [read more]
I am of course referring to albums due out sometime within the rest of this year. I'll list the ones I am looking forward to, as this is in-fact my blog. So there! However, feel free to leave me comments with any albums that you are looking forward to, I'm a pretty open minded kinda guy, so chances are if you are looking forward to it, then I might just appreciate it too.
DJ Shadow – Well, I could write a whole essay purely based … [read more]
