Here it is:

Digable Planets/"Blowout Comb" – Now that the jazz-influenced rap trio has reunited and will headline Chicago's Lollapalooza festival, it's time to dust off this 1994 album, which, in retrospect, was waaaay ahead of its time. The Planets got out of beatnik mode and started messing with some harder beats, and the results are funkier and a little angrier than the group's debut, Reachin'.

www.fluxblog.org – At this MP3 blog, art begets art. Cartoonist John Cei Douglas interprets Spoon's "The Two Sides of Monsieur Valentine" in graphic short story form. "Valentine," by the way, is one of several sweeping, epic rock songs on the Austin band's latest, Gimme Fiction, due Tuesday.

Lil' Jon and the East Side Boyz, "Crunk Juice" (expanded edition) – The bonus CD features two notable mixes of "What U Gon' Do:" a version with reggaeton stars Daddy Yankee and Pitbull and one with dancehall rappers Elephant Man and Lady Saw. Also, you get Lil' Jon's remix of Daddy Yankee's "Gasolina," which is, in case you didn't know, the party jam of the year.

Why Lindsay Buckingham, why now? Did I miss an explanation post?

Over the past few months I have become fascinated by Lindsey Buckingham and Fleetwood Mac. I had always liked their music but for whatever reason this stuff has become a lot more interesting and resonant for me recently...Also, I figured that there were probably a significant number of readers who either were not very aware of Lindsey’s music or hadn’t given it much thought.

Considering who likely reads Fluxblog in 2011, this is probably true.

It woulda had that exact text if I'd spent more than five minutes doctoring the original illustration.

I was worried Fluxblog would wind up being a casualty of this current blog assault. RIP blogs, indeed. At least Matthew has other gigs now.

dunno, seemed sort of reckless for him to post those ridiculously large "year overview" things recently. literally thousands of songs, all (or at least most) commercially available.

tylerw, Monday, 7 May 2012 18:18 (1 year ago) Permalink

Yeah, that was a lot of what worried me. They were awesome, but still, probably not the best time to do it.

Sadly, this is turning out to be pretty true. Third hand information, but I heard through a friend of a friend this weekend that he got a cease and desist email for posting album covers on his blog.

tbh this kind of thing has looked like an inevitability for at the very least 4-5 years now. i tried to stop posting anything that might make my sites a target way back then, i just hope they're only really paying attention to things that were posted recently but i don't know if that's naive to think.

I think that rather than being shut down for sharing mp3s he might have been shut down by the pharma hack. Giving him a tweet... maybe it helps.

Back up now, so maybe not an RIAA thing.

No, remember that MBV group of blogs that Ryan Catbird put together? Well, the hosting went out and Ryan was incommunicado.

heh i just got a DMCA complaint notification on my blogger account. of course it doesn't say WHAT post they took down, but it's probably a really old one from years ago when i sporadically posted mp3s. anyone have an idea how at risk i am for getting the whole thing taken down or if i should just start deleting any old expired mp3 link just to be safe, or is this all guesswork right now?

lo, we will look back on the golden age of mp3 blogging, where people downloaded just one or two tracks and then forgot about them.

remember when that one critic dude put up his mp3 playlists as albums of the year in pazz & jop? that was truly mind-blowing.

Adams: There’s no problem with it, but I do think you need to have listened to a certain amount of music to be able to state that something is the best thing around right now.

If writing about music is like “dancing about architecture,” as the now-hackneyed phrase would have it, music blogging is like walking through buildings with an architectural expert.
