"I thought Dev had dibs for Laptop Symphony... if not, I'll look at it!"

I do, Trey only adds to this list once the review is done. Trey, you got any more info for BT's release date? He's been putting out free mixes under the name of Laptop Symphony for awhile now, but as far as I've seen the album isn't due until March 27th

Willie

--Burial's been delayed - issues with the vinyl pressings--

It for sale right now at http://www.hyperdub.net/


--Trey, you got any more info for BT's release date?--

Amazon US has it listed for Tuesday and Amazon UK for March 27th. It's hard to find information on it because of the radio show and podcasts with the same name. I'm just going to leave in on there until Tuesday to see if Amazon starts selling it.

who is Loincloth?

Xenophanes
01.31.12
Loincloth Is an instrumental metal band sort of in the vein of An Endless Sproradic. That's Voivod and I's doing.

Willie

--"...info for BT's release date?"--

Amazon changed from a Jan 31st release date to "out of stock" so... March 27th it is.

Leonard Cohen review please

GnarlyShillelagh
01.31.12
don't these last.fm lists only refer to how many members listened to the artist, not how many plays the artist got? That would explain the odd inclusions

SowingSeason
01.31.12
was going to review leonard cohen but he's like 80 something

i don't know how to judge it

Adabelle

The Jealous Sound album is alright, there's a stream up/there was a stream up the other day, will try and find it.

Irving
02.01.12
I left my iTunes on shuffle overnight a few days ago...that may have resulted in a single random Katy Perry play, and since this batch of Contribs have wildly varying musical tastes (for example, no one else appears to dig Disney), a single play from two people might be all that is needed for an artist to chart on here lol.

I have no excuse for having Katy Perry on my laptop though.

In other news, I should have that Ringo 2012 review up in a few hours.

SowingSeason
02.01.12
I listen to my music on shuffle at night as well

Wouldn't be surprised if Miley Cyrus or Britney Spears pop up on the staff list some week because I have tons of awk shit on my itunes

Crippled Black Phoenix released an album on the 30th. Would love to see a review for that if any staffers have heard it.
