NWSL #5 = DMCA, and Artistic Openings

We are presently revising the layout of the blog and making a few small changes. This is mostly due in part to a recent claim by chillingeffects.com (on behalf of the DMCA) in regards to the .mp3 sample for Efterklang's Raincoats. The link has been removed from the blog, however, the .mp3 remains to be on the site that hosted it in the first place, which seems ironic to me. As a reminder, we never host music without the prior permission of the artist. Any samples are found on off-site websites.

I also have the opprotunity to recieve an email from Killwave, and they have offered us an exclusive sample of "Kill the King", which previously was unavailable in the post due to it being a private track. You can now listen to the song HERE.

You may be wondering whether or not we will be featuring a "Best of 2010" list or something of the like. Unfortunately, we lack enough material to provide a media list. With more authors and/or more posts, this may become a possibility in the future. Until then, we provide you with the top five most popular posts:

STRK #3 = "Kill The King" by Killwave (46 Visits)
FTRK #3 = "Rain of Astronauts" by Valeskja Valcav (32 Visits)
FTRK #11 = "Bangers and Mash" by Radiohead (18 Visits)
STRK #4 = "Raincoats" by Efterklang (11 Visits)
FTRK #9 = "Snakes" by One Infinite Loop (11 Visits)

We have also reached a total of 664 views as of now. Thanks for visiting.

We are looking for new authors for our blog. If you have a knack for finding new, refined, raw, or experimental music, we could really use your help to develop our blog.
