I found this interesting new music site Pandora: radio from the Music Genome Project. You type in an artist you like and they try and match your music taste. Some are obviously easy, any modern pop tune, but others are a lot more difficult and they just pick the same artist, different song. I think that’s cheating, but it’s not my project.
I took a trip down indie 80’s memory lane with all my favorite 4ad artists: Cocteau Twins, Dean Can Dance, This Mortal Coil, Bauhaus, Joy Division–ah, the big hair memories. We were goth before goth was, well, goth. We were so cool it hurt.
