Post your seasonal reading/ listening/ whatever list!

Inspired by this post on the blue about Barack Obama's summer reading list, I thought it would be interesting if mefites posted lists of what they plan to or have read, listened to, or watched this summer. I don't want to leave out people in the Southern Hemisphere, though, so feel free to post seasonal lists for whatever the season you may be experiencing!

Albums on Fanfare

The new Avalanches album is live-streaming, but the thread has closed. While a new post would be reasonable, I’m feeling spurred to ask: any chance of getting albums added to fanfare someday? musicbrainz and discogs would both be candidate sites for metadata.

"This is all we are" - Goodbye, Wolof

Bassist extraordinaire, author/translator, lover of France, China, Oz, literature and cinema (with a PhD to boot), beloved father, husband, friend, and "big cat of cat family" (to a fluffy black cat), Wolof has passed away. [more inside]

Wrestling Entrance Theme Music MetaTalk

Because I'm tired of having this come up in EVERY SINGLE politics thread: If you were a professional wrestler, what would be your entrance music be? More granularly: what would it be if you were A) a Face, and B) a Heel? Which would you prefer to be? Which do you think you'd be more likely to be? Let's hash this out right now.

Mefi Cover Challenge

There's been a lot of music I've only learned about because of Front Page Posts to the blue, so I would like to suggest a little Mefi Music Challenge! Please record a cover of a song that you only know about because it was in a post on metafilter. [more inside]

Dead MetaFilter Radio

So, I tried to share the MetaFilter Radio app with someone recently and found it was no longer in the App store. And I tried to run my MetaFilter Radio app and it was an utter failure. Are there plans to update this and continue to make it useful and fun, or was it a one-off project and is now dead?

Spotify playlist sharing as a potential feature of Mefi Music

This recent AskMe, the sad demise of This Is My Jam, and some recent music posts on the Blue have got me thinking. How feasible is it to set up some kind of venue for members to share music playlists independent of the Mefi Swap? I'm thinking Spotify playlists in particular, and wondering if there's any scope for adding this as an additional feature to Mefi Music. [more inside]

Looking for a recent article on music criticism

The article I'm trying to recall was a very well written reflection on what the purpose of criticism is. I think the author was mainly concerned about music criticism. There was a central thread through out the story of a particular album (from the late 60s or 70s) that a friend of the author interpreted as being a nihilistic tribute to love. It was moving and I wish I had bookmarked it.

A thread for Bandcamp Fan Pages

If you buy music on Bandcamp and have made your fan page public, what is it? (Mine is Mister Meows, but lives at runciblejones because such things can't be changed.) The MetaFilter CD swaps have demonstrated that many MeFites are into music that's up my ally, and it'd be cool to see what folks are grooving to on a more regular basis.

Are original field recordings of natural sounds OK on MeFi Music?

I could not find anything specific concerning this in the FAQ. However, since field recordings of nature/city soundscapes may not meet the traditional definition of a "music composition", I wanted to get some clarification. [more inside]

Could we allow comments to be posted on music.metafilter.com by Ajax?

I was listening to a piece of music on MeFi Music and posted a comment. It was great that it asked me first if I really wanted to leave the page, but it occurs to me that you could also set it up so that the comment is posted by Ajax instead so you never leave the page. Last time we had this brought up was Nov 2012 and in the context of long threads rather than threads where posting actively interrupts a listening experience. [more inside]

Book on crafting pop hits

Hi, can you identify this post? It was about a songwriter who wrote a book on composing high quality popular songs. The FPP included a rare interview he gave the Guardian and the thread consensus was that the interview was very poorly done. It's for a niece who's making demos. Thanks everybody!

So Many Songs. So Many Steps.

Listen, MetaFilter, 'tis the season and all that, so get yourself over to MetaFilter Music (you know, that subsite you never go to) and check out the absolutely wonderful little Hawaiian Christmas ditty that your fellow Mefier chococat posted, OK? It's called Mele Kalikimaka and it's big fun and just all kindsa damn good and full of holiday cheer and slippery guitars.

OK MetaFilter

Back in June everyone was invited to cover a song from Radiohead's OK Computer for the July '12 MeFi Music Challenge #58. (Music Talk thread) Over the past 2 months—the challenge was extended at the end of July—48 songs were recorded covering the entire album and even one excellent B-side. So much about this challenge excited me, like recording and submitting my first (second, and sort-of third!) Music tracks. And I love Radiohead, so. But this part, where I pick my favorite cover version of each song on the album and build my perfect MeFi Music tribute, OK MetaFilter, that's the part I've really been looking forward to. Come inside for links to playlists for each track of the album so you can build yours too. [more inside]
