New Blog, First Show, First Post

Wow, I haven't had an internet presence in a long time. It feels weird. Anyhoo, I plan on using this blog for playlists for my radio show, My Little Underground (Monday night/Tuesday morning Midnight-2AM), in addition to my thoughts/comments about music and perhaps some non-music related things (comments on movies, comics/manga, TV, events in my life, etc.). We'll see.

Playlist from my first show (January 15, 2008):

24. Fire Engines "Meat Whiplash" Hungry Beat (2007)
25. Aphex Twin "Blue Calx" Selected Ambient Works, Volume 2 (1994)

The theme of the show was mostly all-time favorite songs/bands/artists with some favorites of 2007. I wasn't all that in touch with new music throughout '07, otherwise I would have played more newer stuff.

And I'd probably make a list of favorite albums of '07. Eh, I'm still going to. Here:

1. M.I.A. - Kala
2. Pig Destroyer - Phantom Limb
3. PJ Harvey - White Chalk
4. Pelican - City Of Echoes
5. Fire Engines - Hungry Beat (Reissue, but still excellent)

Sadly, Björk's Volta is not on this list. It was such a disappointment. Maybe I'll edit this little list later if I catch up on '07 tunes.
