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.
Hopefully most of you are already aware that in addition to this blog, I also run the Digital Meltd0wn Music Blogroll/Aggregator. I wanted to inform you that I have just completed the first couple of phases of a major update. Over the last week I have made a number of updates to increase the quality of the blogroll, improve the RSS feed, and enhance the functions of the site as a whole. Here is a list of some of the recent changes:
Removed 250+ spam comments
Removed all dead blogs from the list
Updated urls for all of the blogs that have relocated
Added several dozen blogs
Added RSS feeds for blogs to the master RSS feed, which delivers updates from all of the blogs on the blogroll
Added "Followers" and "Latest Blog Updates" to the sidebar section
So far I have only completed two phases of what will be a six phase update, so there are still several more updates to come. Right now I am going through the comments section and adding the blogs that qualify to the list. This will take some time as there are several hundred comments. I have written a couple of more detailed posts concerning the changes to the site on the site.
I am trying to make the blogroll/aggregator the most valuable resource for finding underground and out of print music that I can. I hope that you will approve of the changes being made, and that it will serve as a valuable tool in your ongoing quest to discover great music. Here is the url:
