Me + Music + Technology =

Now you can witness my current musical addictions courtesy of Last FM!



Last FM
if you don't know, monitors whats on your media player and feeds it through to a networking website. Press 'play' and you get a personalised radio station. It's also got few cool features like recommending similar artists, the widgets (like the one featured on this blog on the right) and the comfort that your musical taste and trends are being monitored by a corporate body, probably for marketing purposes.

I've been addicted to a few artists and a few individual tracks and am unable to stop listening!! A strange and feverish musical bathing that I'm currently subjecting myself too. A reward maybe after moving pretty much my entire CD collection onto my PC. Anyway, since a computer far far away is probably working through this I thought I'd give it a go to.

Here's the situation since i joined a month ago.... You'd have seen a hell of a lot more Joanna Newsom if I'd have joined earlier...

So heres the trends;

Song-based music with real instruments - for when I'm feeling all emotional and need an outlet:
MMISL / Joanna Newsom / Tori Amos

Cool as fuck and textural electronica - for audio pleasures, a time to appreciate genius and production values hand in hand:
2 Many DJs / Bjork / Ovuca / Nine Inch Nails

Euphoric Dance - in nostagic yearning for more clubland!:
Sasha / Gabriel Ananda / Various Artists (Track 9 is 'Wrong Direction' by Leandro Gamez, Track 1 is from the spanish Electro Trax Magazine CD #29 from Sonar)

Brutal hardcore and breakcore - for bustin heads to on the dancefloor when I'm feeling physical:
Rolo Tomassi / Hellifish / Shitmat / Ed Gein / Calyx
