In the spirit of joining the critical jazz/metal nexus bandwagon, I read this article on "brutal prog" and am listening to some head-spinning Flying Luttenbachers tracks.

Jamendo: like Flickr, but for music.

The Rambler points to an article on experiencing music in the 21st century that is as worthwile as it is long. It's level-headed tone and clinical examination is a nice change from all those breathlessly hysterical "iPod revolutionises music!" articles.

In case you were wondering what the solos on "Kind of Blue" look like.

Why do they call them albums? And why are their covers decorated rather than plain brown? Find out here and there. A few album cover examples by artist.
