James Blake - Limit To Your Love

alex on December 10 2010

Very chill winter music. You might notice the new social and fund boxes on the right info panel. I've completely funded this project for 4 years and never asked for anything back just knowing that we're supplying people with awesome music to make their life just a little better is enough for me to keep this thing going. Moving forward into 2011 I'd like to make some big changes to left as rain but I need the help of our listeners to make that happen. We currently recieve about 15k global hits a month and stream absolutely insane amounts of data, if each of those hits donate 1 dollar for a month we'd have enough money to run left as rain until I get prostate cancer or chris gets alzheimer's. as most of you probably know, this site will always remain a niche entity, you'll never see a banner ad or the typical weak music blog format here. With that being said I think there's some really bad ass shit we can do with this format that involves the users as well, I've set a soft goal for the donations so as soon as I see that number get close to where it needs to be I'll begin making some really cool shit then you'll be all like fuck yeah I'm glad I donated.

Warpaint - Majesty

This album blew me out of the water. For a couple reasons actually. This is me Not being misogynist, but it's rare to have a full band of amazing women musicians, I'm talking top tier. They break into some Jaco Pastorious grade bass riffs in this jam. It's pretty remarkable. Their ex-guitarist strums for the Red Hot Chili Peppers for Gods sake. They are also hot, which is me being a dude. Get the album, it's called the Fool.

THIS is actually the 800th post because no one lives in programmer world but you alex.

Supposedly this album came out in May and no one told me about it, I feel so betrayed. Guess what kiddies?! this is our 800th post, chris will undoubtedly protest and say the post counter says 799, to which I'll replay 0 is a number in programming world. Speaking of 800 songs, we streamed 107,000 MBs last month... time for another makeover...
