My Favorite Mixes of 2017smcgonaglefav-mixes

Sat, 23 Dec 2017 15:06:31 +0000

I’d be remiss if I didn’t give some attention to the excellent mixes that surfaced this year. Out of about 30 mixes I heard, I plucked 9 of my favorite ranging from ambient to dub to IDM to dark techno to downright weird. Enjoy.

This year, like previous years, I listened to almost 300 new releases. That’s nearly one new release per day. And no, I don’t know how I did it either. And also like previous years, I decided to unleash a really large list of 45 rather than attempt to cull it down to, say, my favorite […](image)

My Favorite Mixes of 2016smcgonagle2016-mixes

Wed, 21 Dec 2016 13:38:57 +0000

Mixes, online radio broadcasts, live sets — 2016 was filled with some excellent music outside of the traditional formats. My favorites on SoundCloud, MixCloud, and other sites are too lengthy to list here. So, I plucked out a few highlights. (And yes I know the Antenes mix is from 2015. But I just discovered it and it’s […](image)

Sundays in December are for sleeping in and deciding on your favorite picks from the year. So that’s exactly what I did today. I combed through the 206 new releases I listened to this year to whittle things down to a more-manageable thirty-six. I realize some of these releases aren’t necessarily new music from this year, […](image)

It’s been another strong year for new music. While I found myself discovering over 270 new releases, I also dove into the vast world of “wave” (synth, minimal, new, cold), industrial and EBM thanks to my Something Cold friends and their events here in Detroit. I inhaled a lot of fog to listen to lost […](image)

It’s been a year since I last posted here. I guess my blogging days are over for now. But I’ll continue to use this for my favorite releases list. I went a little bananas this year and, after listening to 260 new albums, I whittled the list down to 45. I figured — what the heck […](image)

Here we are at the end of another year and I’m scrambling to figure out my favorite releases. Granted, it’s totally self-imposed pressure. I do enjoy looking back on all the new music I’ve heard to sort through the highlights. This year I topped 200 releases and narrowed down my favorite 10%-ish below. I didn’t […](image)

Favorites of 2012: resplendent in amateur haikusmcgonagle

Thu, 06 Dec 2012 16:35:27 +0000

Another difficult year to whittle down a long list of excellent music. Like last year, my “top ten” is sacrilegious because it’s a list of twenty. I’m also stealing from the playbook of @justinsnow (of AGB fame). I wanted to write mini-reviews again but had the idea to do it in haiku format. But then I […](image)

Spectral Rehab Playlistsmcgonagle

Mon, 22 Oct 2012 22:22:45 +0000

On Saturday night, I had the wonderful opportunity to join @johnxela for a night of playing music at River Gods in Central Square, Cambridge. He and @ianplaw host a DJ night each month as part of their @SpectralRehab series. So I filled in for Ian this month. This was the third time in 15 years […](image)

Omar’s Wild Years – The Wire Unmixedsmcgonagle

Thu, 29 Mar 2012 22:22:03 +0000

I’ve been watching The Wire lately. (I’m just wrapping up season 1 so no spoilers please.) After only a few episodes, it quickly became clear that Omar’s taste in music far surpassed the paltry hip hop listening habits of Avon Barksdale as he cruised around, looking all tough, in his Ford Whatever along the gritty […](image)
