Best Albums of 2016

Posted January 1, 2017 By admin

The time has come to rank the best albums of the past year. It’s been a year of loss, as many great musicians have passed, some very near and dear to my heart. Some great music was made though, and that’s what will always keep the memories of musicians alive. I’m sure some of the albums below will be new to some people, and some will be very familiar. Hopefully the ones that are new to you will inspire you to seek them out and give them a chance, and the ones you already know will inspire you to revisit them at some point. Before I get to the top 10, here are some honorable mentions that just missed the cut but deserve to be listened to:

And now, the top 10:

10. Hayes Carll-Lovers and Leavers

9. Sarah Jarosz-Undercurrent

8. Anoushka Shankar-Land Of Gold

7. Benjamin Francis Leftwich-After The Rain

6. Romantica-Shadowlands

5. The Cactus Blossoms-You’re Dreaming

4. Loretta Lynn-Full Circle

3. The Pines-Above The Prairie

2. Bob Dylan-Fallen Angels

1. Leonard Cohen-You Want It Darker

Music For Humans Awards

Posted February 9, 2013 By admin

The Grammy Awards are presented tomorrow, and in light of that I thought I would do my own personal Grammy awards. Honestly, the real Grammy’s have become a joke, it’s a popularity contest more than giving awards to quality music. It’s depressing and frustrating seeing some of my favorite artists go unnoticed, which is why I thought it would be fun to go through some hand picked categories of my own and see what I could come up with. So, here is what I came up with  in my first annual Music For Humans Awards.

Top albums of 2012

Posted January 3, 2013 By admin

Well, another year has come and gone, and it’s time to post my favorite albums of the past year. 2012 seemed to lack a lot of depth in terms of quality albums. There are a few great ones at the top of the list, but once you get past the first 6 or 7, the quality starts to fade fast. That’s not to say they are bad albums, but there just weren’t many that wowed me this year. I will say this though, there were definitely a lot of great songs released this year, so keep a look out for that list coming in the next couple days. Here’s the list of my top albums from 2012.

Honorable mentions:
Sixpence None The Richer- Lost In Translation
Fiona Apple- The Idler Wheel…
Justin Bieber- Believe
R. Kelly- Write Me Back
DMX- Undisputed

 10. Kevin Coster & Modern West- Famous For Killing Each Other

The Pines-Live At Sacred Heart Music Center

Posted August 11, 2012 By admin

As you may remember last post, I was trying to a find a new home to host live shows/bigger downloads since Demonoid went down. I’ve come up with a solution that should solve the problem. From here on out, I will be hosting shows on The Pirate Bay, as well as files under 400 MB on File Factory. This means for shows like the following, it will be hosted on The Pirate Bay, as well as having the opening act show being able to be downloaded from File Factory as it is under 400 MB’s. If it sounds confusing, you will see as we go it will actually be easier this way than in the past. The Pirate Bay uses “magnet links”, if you’re not familiar with what that means, you can find out more here. If you want to use old-fashioned .torrent files, click here to find out how to download those from The Pirate Bay. Please feel free to e-mail me if you have any questions, I am more than happy to help out. Here is the inaugural show using this method.
