I can’t say I’ve ever thought about what Miles Davis’ classic album “Kind of Blue” would sound like if it was ion 8-bit, but apparently someone else did. Warning: they want actual cash for the whole thing. The samples are well worth the visit though.
If you like late 70′s/early 80′s punk rock, :30 Under DC concentrates on the Washington D.C. area and has a discography, some info… and the best part, some excellent and rare mp3′s.
Neil Young playing with Devo? It happened.
If you want an amazing collection of garage, novelty and otherwise awesome tunes then check out Lux and Ivy’s Favorites. A fan-compiled series, this is a must have for fans of The Cramps or anyone with ears.
iiiiiiii. Just because.
I’ve posted April Winchell’s site before, but her collection of holiday songs can’t be beat.
If you’re on Myspace, you have to friend Don’t Kall the Kops. Awesome!
You haven’t heard Rush’s YYZ until you’ve heard (and seen) it played by an 11-year old on the keyboard.
This site has tons of anime soundtracks, but what has me browsing for new ringtone material is the huge collection of video game themes mixed in.
While I detest Pitchfork’s music reviews, they’ve done quite well with their new site: Pitchfork.tv.
Jango calls itself “social internet radio”. While I like online radio, I pretty much detest the idea of socializing. If you take that aspect out, it’s still an ok site. They played “Mouth Breather” by The Jesus Lizard for me, so it can’t be all bad. If you’re bored with Pandora check it out.
How have I gone more than 25 years without knowing that Clara Peller recorded a single for her Where’s The Beef? catchphrase?
If you’re in the market for downloadable, quality audio bootlegs, you could do much worse than The Ultimate Bootleg Experience.
If you’re looking for a few album today, head over and snag Saul Williams – The Inevitable Rise and Liberation of NiggyTardust. If you don’t know Saul, watch the video for List Of Demands and Black Stacey to see if you like his style. The latest is either free or you can donate $5 to help Saul out a bit. Great stuff.
Watch 1,000 music videos from the 1980′s (100 per year). The quality is pretty bad (Youtube), but I haven’t seen some of these since they were hits.
If you’re a fan of music mash-ups, you must visit Go Home Productions for the currently available 5 year retrospective. 20 songs, all quality boots.
Time Magazine claims it’s the 30th Anniversary of Punk. I’m not sure that’s true at all, but the photos used are worth checking out for Ramones and Sex Pistols fans.
