New Site Launch

Late Sunday night = Ironing Tweaks in the New Site Design. Full functionality is key! Aim for perfection always! Seriously though, we are going to have this baby up and running tomorrow if it kills me.

Top Five CDs to Listen to While Redesigning Your Music Blog:

1. Califone - Roots & Crowns

Sometimes you just need something you can ignore. This is for those intense sessions when the CSS gods are frowning upon you, and you need a sweet golden voice and experimental acoustics to guide you through the fog.

2. The Field - Here We Go to Sublime

To wake you up from that Califone you just listened to, though it's still suitable background music -- now with beats! What SonicRyan would call, "Techno music on your own terms."

3. Neutral Milk Hotel - On Avery Island

To remind you why you are putting so much time and energy into your music blog. WARNING: Turn off "Pree Sisters Swallowing a Donkey's Eye," or you'll be sucked into the abyss of madness. Which reminds me of a couple good quiz questions, "Tracks That You Turn off on Otherwise Remarkable Albums" and "Tracks Liable to Trigger a Migraine."

4. New Pornographers - Challengers

AC Newman's latest pow-wow of what his site calls "ridiculously talented musicians" (they are). Some good slow ones to bolster your concentration, some good fast ones to snap you awake. Oh and, didn't you promise to review that for tomorrow? First things first.

5. Built to Spill - Perfect from Now On

For irony. And because it fucking rocks.

Stay tuned -- site ready to launch in 5, 4, 3, 2...
