Trying to keep up with all of the great music out there is a full-time job. Staying within the electronic, dub-step, classical, hard-to-define genres, I picked up these new/newer/should-have-had a long time ago albums the past week.
- Lindsey Stirling, self-titled debut (2012)
Unbelievable violin set to dub-step, drums, synths, electronic background that on the surface sounds like an odd combination, but she pulls this off. I have been listening 4 or 5 times a day since downloading this. Play it loud.
- deadmau5, album title goes here (2012), and 4×4=12 (2010)
Where has deadmau5 been all of my life? Music that takes your head and scrambles it. This is electronic.
- Phuture Doom, Nightfall (EP, 2013)
Wow, what blend of sounds is my mind hearing? This is intense, surreal, and from somewhere not of this earth.
- Soundgarden, King Animal (2012)
Brings back memories of the 90s as their sound has not changed much, and that is a good thing. Classic Soundgarden and Chris Cornell’s vocals are as great as ever.
