The Hype Machine's Music Blog Zeitgeist 2009

The Hype Machine

So I was just on The Hype Machine and noticed they posted their final results for top songs/artists/albums compiled via music blog submissions. I almost forgot I submitted my list last month. Three of my selections were counted among their Music Blog Zeitgeist's Top 50 Albums list. Check out the links below and see the entire list for yourself:

#1 - Miike Snow (Hype Machine's #32)
#3 - Mos Def (Hype Machine's #28)
#6 - The Horrors (Hype Machine's #23)

Pretty sweet. I guess sometimes you can't underestimate the P of the I.M. ("Power of the Internet, Mister!"--Tiga)!

MIXTAPE: Disco Desire (Vol. 3)

To welcome in 2010 on the blog, I give you volume three of Disco Desire. I think it's definitely the more amourous mixtape of the three (I didn't anticipate so many love songs, disco made me do it!).

There's a couple of DFA tracks (Walter Jones, James Curd) and Morgan Geist-related cuts (Margueritas, Metro Area), some newer finds (The Revenge, Tensnake, 40 Thieves, Ilija Rudman), and of course I couldn't forget the classic jams (Chic, Kitty Grant's Chas Jankel cover, Was Not Was, Space, Boney M).

1980-2010, this music's come a long way. And we just won't stop!
