The Son Lux download isn't working for me... Too bad because it's the only one I don't have and want to checkout!

The sputnikmusic link was a great read. The list has a few of my favorites as well (Aussitôt Mort, Ghostlimb), but I haven't been able to come down with a proper list yet since there's so much stuff that I haven't listened.

Anyways, great job, and here's to a even greater 2009 for music, and of course, for you and your blog.

ya jamie, i was going to mention that im pretty sure anticon is super intense about protecting their album, which is all good with me. as a result there are very few son lux links on the internet. check out the remixes and free mp3s and if you like it, buy the album. these downloads are not meant to replace buying the album, but rather to supplement and facilitate exposure of good artists.

the psy/op link doesnt work man...

DFelon204409 said...

ya for some reason sharebee took down psy's stuff which he promptly replaced since he wants it to be D/Led for free. check the link now.
