Aural Fixation: 33 Tracks From The End Of The Aughts, My Heart To Your [Downloadable Device]*

✼—Limited Time Offer/”It’s A Lot Like Life”—✼

Alright you guys: Apart from a few tracks on which I had some creative involvement, I’ve never utilized Ye Olde Dot Com in the context of a public music share. Never until now, that is… With this: a veritable list of my 33 favorite songs from ’09.

As stated on Fluxblog, Music For Robots, NME’s “Daily Download”, Music Is Art, Glorious Noise and a slew of other noteworthy locales among the internet ethers, any music posted is provided under a code of ethics ✼ [& Disclaimer]

Though it should go without saying, if anything from this catalogue aux Catalottalisps moves your spirit, contributes to involuntary thrusts of elbows and hipbones, or just plain pleases your ear canal with good aural: give the musicians some much-deserved love and support. That’s “love” as in: the kind from your pocketbook—not Nature’s Little Pocket, and “support” that doesn’t involve an underwire or cup size.  Odds are, Pamela Des Barres has that Other territory covered, anyway—unless VH1’s Next Big Hit: a competitive “reality” series entitled Groupie: Go Ho or Go Home! is still in negotiations.

So, yes…here’s my first Em Pee Three Web Log

a play list intended as a means of promoting the artists as well as the art

for the sake of art itself:

The creative spirit is contagious

and these are the the lullabies that transmit inspiration
Lily Allen and Annie’s bubblegum pop with biting, cyanide-laced lyrics that
induced an emotional imprint, capture an essence:
the interrobang I experienced upon hearing the somber vocals of Fever Ray’s Karin Andersson
collide with boody-bass, a re-mix that shatters her glacial strip-tease & throws everything
off, like the crepuscular hour in which I was first infected by Demdike Stare:
hunched over at my desk, fist gripped around a sweat-slick black Ticonderoga, that
late night/early morning’s weapon of choice for my
battle with words—though what I fought more than anything was to stay awake
floating in and out of consciousness, when
suddenly and without warning, I was surrounded by an echoing incantation
that rose up, a miasma as mysterious as voodou yet synthetic, manufactured, cold

Wait…What the F was I rambling about?

:: never mind all that :: just ::

close your eyes :: inhale deeply, & :: listen

Things You Should Know: Tonight & Otherwise

Sleep-deprived, eyes feel like my corneas have been fried by my monitor,
just spent something like a nine-hour span working on what
less than 15 minutes after my marathon of fingerprints
I’m already thinking was a lame concept to develop.

But enough with the waaaahmbulantastic “tl;dr”—
lemme get this outta the way instead:

As an art fag, yeah:
I’m backin it.

Full Appreciation/Yes, Indeed
