Hi. This compilation, featuring songs by experimental electronic music pioneer Bruce Haack, is a very recent addition to the Spotify library. Enjoy!
(Note: I’m busy today, which means the next 2010 Mega Project update will happen late tonight.)
Bruce Haack – Farad: The Electric Voice
Howdy folks. It’s time for another part of the 2010 Mega Project. The title says it all today. Enjoy!

Seeland – How To Live
Sonny & The Sunsets – Tomorrow Is Alright
Spectrals – A Spectrals Extended Play
The Crookes. Indie pop. Review here.

Hey there. The new album by Yellow Ostrich has just been added to the Spotify library. Genre: experimental folk/rock. Enjoy!
Yellow Ostrich – The Mistress
Hello again. It’s day 12 of the 2010 Mega Project and four more singer-songwriters are ready for your attention. Once again each presentation will be a quote from a review. Enjoy!
Pieta Brown – One And All
Samantha Crain – You (Understood)
Sebastian Blanck. “Co-produced with Jorge Elbrecht of Violens, the album has a warm, wide-open atmosphere reminiscent of Simon & Garfunkel and, with the help of the female vocalists, the Mamas & the Papas (adding to the effect, Blanck often doubles his own vocal track).” (review)
Sebastian Blanck – Alibi Coast
The Bear That Wasn’t – And So It Is Morning Dew
Hi. Here is a new pop album from the latest Spotify update. Enjoy Le Futur Pompiste!
Le Futur Pompiste – Le Futur Pompiste
Hey. The 2010 Mega Project continues. Today we dive into the vast electronic genre. Each album presentation will again consist of a quote from a review. Enjoy!
(And please keep subscribing to the 2010 Mega Project playlist!)
Copy – Hard Dream
Darkstar. “If Sufjan Stevens and Fleet Foxes are able to give credibility and respect to pop music today the way the Beatles, the Kinks, and others did before them, then Darkstar has the potential to join the ranks of other seminal artists who have given electronic music a deeper dimension.” (review)
Darkstar – North
Eleven Tigers. “Clouds is the aural canvas that captures the shadowy essence of humanity; a fluttering eyelash, a shy smile, a pale hand delicately brushing willowy hair away from shining eyes.” (review)
Eleven Tigers – Clouds Are Mountains
Nedry. “Experienced as a whole, Condors is a multi-course meal that features some familiar dishes and some foreign with ingredients that require a bit of acclimation–but they’re all delicious.” (review)
Nedry – Condors
Teielte. “This is a concise work by an artist who is not scared of using distorted bleeps, bits and cut-ups to create very melodic, smoothly flowing and tasty music cocktail with great synths and catchy basslines.” (review)
Teielte – Homeworkz
Hello again. The 2010 Mega Project is now at the halfway point. From the title you can see that this is the second part with “high profile” releases that I for different reasons didn’t write about earlier this year. Most of these should already be familiar to you. Enjoy!
Straight-forward happiness and a certain quirkiness are the two factors that make Welsh psychedelic pop/glam rock band Race Horses stand out from the rest of the pack.
Race Horses – Goodbye Falkenburg
Alt-country singer-songwriter Shelby Lynne should be no stranger to you. However, her latest album, one of her best efforts, did somehow manage to slip below my radar back in September.
Shelby Lynne – Tears, Lies and Alibis
Experimental rock band Swans released their first album in 14 years earlier this year and it was a good one.
Swans – My Father Will Guide Me Up A Rope To The Sky
The Fresh & Onlys – Play It Strange
The ultra hyped pop/rock band Vampire Weekend followed up their superb first album with a second one that didn’t quite live up to the hype, in my not so humble opinion. But in the end it was actually not too shabby. The reason I didn’t write about it before was because the label decided to delay sending it to Spotify while making it available for free streaming at other places…
Vampire Weekend – Contra
