elcome to the Digital Meltd0wn Music Blog. The aim of this blog is to introduce the readers to music that is out of print, commercially unavailable, released under a creative commons license, or with approval by the featured artist. The majority of the music posted here would be considered underground. Don't let that fool you into thinking that the music featured here might be any less enjoyable than that of the mainstream artists you hear on the radio, as this couldn't be further from the truth.
Please keep in mind that the majority of the artists that appear on this blog, along with their respective record labels, are not wealthy and need your support. If you enjoy the material that you find here, please support the artists/labels by purchasing their material afterwards. If you are an artist/label that would prefer to have your material removed from this blog, simply leave me a comment, and I would be more than happy to promptly remove the offending post.
In addition to running this blog, I also work on a few other projects during my spare time. You can find links to those, as well as a few other important links associated with Digital Meltd0wn in the menu bar above.
Black Moth Super Rainbow is my favorite contemporary electronic act. They separate themselves from the rest of the pack by playing an experimental blend of lo-fi electronica and psychedelic rock. In July of 2008, just before releasing their highly anticipated Drippers EP, they released Bonus Drippers (The Older Unreleased and Hard-To-Find Songs) to the world for free. These tracks were initially meant to be included on a CD/vinyl release but loss of the source material led the band to release them in mp3 format. Links to these files can also be found on the band's website here
Bonus Drippers presents tracks from each phase of BMSR's brief recording history, ranging from "Melting on the Meadow" a 2003 outtake from Start a People, to "The Dark Forest Joggers", a track which was exclusively released (until now) with the vinyl edition of Dandelion Gum. Most of the tracks are very brief, with "Unfinished Sketch" and "Unfinished Sketch 2" clocking in at under 30 seconds, and the remaining tracks clocking in around the two minute mark. While it is slightly less polished and enjoyable as their previous releases, Bonus Drippers is a fun and worthwhile listening experience. You can't beat that price either.
