ladies and gentlemen (and others), it’s that time to once again bring you another two in review.
if you’ve missed any past reviews, you can view the two in review archive.
this is one of those where it was really difficult to narrow down a long list of really great music. that’s why you’re getting this on the very last day of april. i’ve spent the last week (and particularly, the last 2 days) adding and taking away tracks from the final 20 you’re receiving today. a lot of great music didn’t make the final cut. nevertheless, i’m happy with the final result. i hope you are as well.
so without further ado, here’s the lineup for the march/april edition of two in review:
ladies and gentlemen (and others), we’re a couple months into a new year which means it’s that time to once again bring you two in review. believe it or not, this is year number 3 of this series, so i’m excited to still be plugging along. i hope you’re enjoying it as well.
typically, the start of a new year is a slow time for new music. this year was no different. with the exception of music from fiction family, frightened rabbit and the lone bellow (and a couple others), there weren’t a lot of major highlights in january. february, though, picked up and helped to make for a pretty good collection this month.
my favorite two in reviews are ones that offer a broad spectrum of music and this one certainly doesn’t disappoint. so without further ado, here’s the lineup for the january/february edition of two in review:
at exactly 11:01 last night, derek webb culminated his 2 month-long (this all started on march 26 or april 24, depending on how you look at it) wild goose chase by, well, delivering the wild goose. the goose came in the form of a free download (direct download link) of the soundtrack for the (likely fictional) film nexus by his new concept band called sola-mi. the band consists of himself, long-time collaborator josh moore and the autumn film frontwoman latifah phillips.
i recently began a new blog series called ’10 spot’ in which i’d be crafting lists of the top 10 songs from artists of my choosing. here’s a little back story about how this began from my original post:
several weeks ago, my friend bryan stormed (when large men walk briskly, the term “stormed” is usually appropriate…) into my office and laid down a musical challenge: “top 10 black keys songs by the end of the day. go!”.
so, throughout the course of the day, i whittled down my original off-the-top-of-my-head list of about 32 to my final 10. at the end of the day, we compared and contrasted our lists. (bryan’s is here.)
and, of course, good times were had by all.
let’s just cut to the chase, friends: jesus is coming to get ya.
well, some of ya.
but not all of ya.
as most of you know, thanks to our friends at family radio, we have ample prep time for jesus’ return on may 21, 2011. that, of course, is tomorrow. it’s coming pretty quickly.
it’s april, fools.
[see what i did there…]
yes, it is, in fact, april and it is, in fact, the first. and you know, it’s just time for a new mix.
