Well, I'm still mourning the loss of Candy Mind, but life moves on, eh?
The fourth BlocSonic compilation, netBloc vol. 4: Soundtrack for the Coming Revolution was released overnight. As I write this in a hotel in Boston I'm listening to another excellent collection of net music from BSWC favored sources such as archive.org, Jamendo and ccMixter.
A couple of the tunes have been featured on these pages...call that synergy.
The item from Maniax Memori really stood out for me. A track with some raw, but restrained power that you can feel building from the first note.
BlocSonic is an excellent project. They put together a mediated collection of net music, package it very nicely and do a good job with distribution. It is an excellent exercise in tastemaking in the CC licensed, netlabel world. Thanks, Michael.
