Why does our world need new music? This is a show about the new music we have and the music you’ll have to leave the house to hear.
The “Best of” lists are an effort by people who don’t get on board with “mainstream” music to say how good things can be if you only give them a chance. We try hard to be objective in our writing, but our focus is still on celebrating new music from around the world.
Our focus is not on being cool or hip or cool with people who do something not popular or who are a bunch of weirdos looking for a name change that won’t happen, or who are just boring people who say weird things and think everyone else is boring. If you think that, please stop reading this site, because we don’t want to be friends.
A very special thanks to our Patreon Supporters for making our new music live on stage. We wouldn’t be here without you.
Music featured in this show includes tracks from:
The White Stripes, The Cure, The 1975, The Tannoy, The Stylistics, The Kinks, The White Stripes, Blondie, The Flaming Lips, Sonic Youth and many more.

Even more shocking, however, was the fact that, despite being shown to people for years, the phone didn’t even sell 3.5 million in its first year.
Apple’s subsequent product line-ups have largely followed the same trend. From iPhones to iPad to MacBooks to iMacs—the company even went so far as to get rid of the physical keyboard in the final generation of Macs, but has seemingly kept it alive in iOS—Apple has never made a phone that it feels is the most important of the lot.
This is the problem that has long bedeviled Apple—it always goes back to the question of what it’s really supposed to do. Even if the company wants to be the best phone maker in
