The man running this thing is on an indefinite hiatus. Due to personal reasons and an oversaturated market in this field he doesn't feel the need to speak his voice. Until further ado this remains that way.

Josdigital’s Favorite Albums of 2010

When you thought the time of reminiscence was over, here’s one more for ya. After the fact again but not defying logic by releasing when the year is actually over. In a non-reversed order for your viewing pleasure, this is a non-profit non-judgmental blog anyways. Two things to note though. 1. This wasn’t, to me at least, the most fulfilling year in music. 2. I’m not getting in any discussion about which is best. My post title is pretty self-explanatory. Without further ado, ...

Glasser – Ring

It's amazing how music has evolved these last few years. Mostly for the better, but you can't deny that an over saturated market doesn't have its defects. Most notably the need to stand out, to cross a farther reaching boundary, the so-called wow-factor. In that Cameron Mesirow aka Glasser has no desire. Her whole debut album circles around this dreamy composition that feels lighter than air, breaths warmth and produces a comforting atmosphere. The use of a sarangi, a Nepalese stringed instrument, creates a very distinct sound which is among a vast array of influences. I've been ...

El-P – Weareallgoingtoburninhellmegamixxx3

It's strange Brooklyn based hiphop producer/mc/label owner El-P is still being introduced as a former Company Flow member (see what i did there). Agreed 97's Funcrusher was a groundbreaking album and a jumpstart into his own underground hiphop movement, but I personally think that the man accomplished more throughout his solo career. I remember calling him a revolutionary beat smith on my 2007 favorite albums list. As progressive I’ll Sleep When You’re Dead was then, the more Weareallgoingtoburninhellmegamixxx3 remains his familiar territory, unlike former mixxxes. Anything El ...

Health – Disco2

Health is an experimental noise rock band with a big focus on delivering a distinct mostly conceptual sound. They've been praised for that and if lately you've spent some time on The Hype Machine or any mp3 blog, you know that Health is a common remixee (if you will). This release sees every track of their acclaimed Get Color album reworked by well established remix artists in various styles of electronica, but surprisingly left a pretty coherent piece that's easily played in one setting. Nothing but fun here, with the right amount of eclectic that makes this the perfect driving ...

Caribou – Swim

Canadian Dan Snaith isn't as much an innovator as he is a progressor. Whether it's his previous psych pop spectacle, Andorra, or condensed organic electronica through his Manitoba releases, he knows what works, what needs to be explored and built upon. It's no secret that my adoration for the ...

Four Tet – There is Love in You

Five years seems like a lot in music. Back in 04-05, when IDM was still considered a sole genre in electronic music, when the Ninja Tune label was still notorious for its great releases and when eclectic electronic music was still indie as ever, there were a few artists that could do no wrong. ...
