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.

Digital Meltd0wn last.fm Group - February 2010 Recommendations

Some of you may or may not already know that I started a last.fm group for Digital Meltd0wn - http://last.fm/group/digital+meltd0wn a few years ago. Due to various personal issues, and my recent move, the group had been inactive for far too long. I have been making an effort to devote more time to the group, and fortunately activity has picked up once again. I have also made the group open, rather than requiring approval, so please join up if you haven't already. In the past we shared our monthly music recommendations with each other, then I would share them here on the blog; however, due to my absence, a recommendation thread hadn't been posted for several months. The idea was resurrected once again, and several people took part in sharing their recommendations with the group. There was a nice selection posted this month, ranging from Italian doom metal to French electropop. So without further ado, I present to you the Digital Meltd0wn last.fm group's recommendations for the month of February 2010:
