A shout “hello!” from an otherwise quiet blog this week. Traffic, comments and my posts were a little less frequent this week due to a number of things. But I am here and wanted to give a quick rundown of what’s been happening as of late with some of the projects and features on this here blog.
Blog Features update
Firstly you may have noticed a pause in the Multi Kulti Pandora’s Vase feature. Our lovely host, Marianne, has been very busy with her DJ sets and her appearances on RadioSonar in Rome. For now you can check back there to see what’s she’s up to (I’ll keep you posted of any upcoming DJ set streams) and I will also be putting up an archives page for past posts of that as well.
Secondly in the radio department, due to circumstances of the work kind, I was unable to archive this week’s airing of Trash City Radio Show, so if you’ve been looking for that, apologies, and for now I’ll point you to the Trash City Archives page that has been updated and includes several recent weeks of shows. Next week I will resume again with the archive.
A few items in the project arena . . . I’ve announced the newest group project you can get involved with last week, that being the more elaborate but potentially very dynamic and exciting Musical Heads project. Check it out, and consider screwing on your music loving head and let me know if you’re willing to submit a post. I’ve started to collect a few items to give away to those willing to dish out a few hours of their time listening to music, researching, writing and creating something for it.
Mondo Instante 8 is coming up fast…Saturday, May 28th, 2011 at 20:00 UTC. Go to the Mondo Instante page for details and what time you’ll need to take a photo.
As far as submissions are concerned, the blog now has a new official email address to use for any future submissions. Please make note that blog at tuliptreepresents dot com is the new method of contact (I’ve removed the Contact Form page).
Free Music Alerts!
Finally, for some musical goodies, I’ve got a few links in the free music alert category. First is a track by good friend Donny Taylor and his band, Lovesoul. If you head on over to the band’s page, you can download the brand newly available “reason 2 live” It’s infectious, funky and I love the sound of Donny and band mate Rebel Mariposa’s voices together. There’s also three other songs you can stream there as well. Check them out!
I also want to point you over to 19 free tracks from Hayvanlar Alemi, a band I recently discovered during a jaunt in psyberspace, self-described as “contemporary Turkish improv-psych-folk-rock freakouts!” You can listen as well as download any of the songs posted there . . . a virtual treasure trove from a really interesting band.
And that’s pretty much an entire week of blogging in one post. Hopefully next week will find me posting a little more often. Now to get the sketchbook out! For now it’s off to work for me . . . enjoy the weekend!
