Our 7th annual Zeitgeist! In our roundup of the best music of 2014, we have:
An Album for Every Moment: We asked musicians, music bloggers, and friends to recommend a perfect album for every moment of the year. Use this guide to find albums you may have missed or make a new connection with something you already know.
Top 50 Artists: The most-blogged artists of 2014.
Top 50 Tracks: A set of the most-favorited tracks on Hype Machine this year.
You can also toggle between past Zeitgeists using the dropdown menu on the top. Check them out—good music is good music, any time or year.
Thank you for listening with us!
Living Spaces is a traveling showcase series organized by our friends at Portals. Their next destination is Austin, on New Year’s Eve. We’re once again happy to be supporting the event, as the first two, in Brooklyn (pictured above) and Baltimore, were exceptional.
In their words, what it’s all about:
“Reaching out to old and new friends, we’ll move from city to city, occupying a unique independent space in each one. For each event, we’ll collaborate with local visual and multidisciplinary artists to construct large-scale spatial installations. Our overarching intent is to create inhabitable space for live performance–space where everyone can engage wholeheartedly with the present experience. We hope to include both more familiar and less familiar visual artists, musicians, audiences, and places.”
Explore the sights and sounds of each artist (and RSVP if ringing in 2015 in Texas) here.
We’ve restocked our Merch shop with new tees. They feature a soft print of our logo bubble, and feel very nice. Get one!
All of our t-shirts are silkscreened by Paul and Mookie at City Dog Screen Printing in NYC. Most of the screens have been reclaimed, but 1 or 2 of the old designs are still in this rack here ↓
Do you have any of them? All of them? Send pics!
Our Android app is finally out and you can get it here. It is very nice to use, has all the major features of the site, and does not have ads or monthly fees.
Thank you to all the Android users for your patience; this is the fastest we could build something well-made given our constraints.
It’s almost CMJ week in NYC. There’s a lot to navigate, officially and unofficially, on both sides of the bridge. And like anything with music, it’s generally a good idea to see what the blogs are up to. So we built a thing that highlights shows in the music blog community. Have a listen/look at the lineups here.
