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.

I guess it's musick swap time. I'm downloading Nostromo & while I'm waiting, I read your Brainticket comment. Musick sharing sure is fun. Sorry about your mishap, but glad you're back here posting, you always have some interesting things to hear.
I'll be enjoying your future posts.

Thanks. I am interested in hearing your opinion of Nostromo.


I'm probably a fool to state my opinion here after the slagging I took for the last comments a made about some so-called musick...well, I am a fool...but here goes. As you stated, this particular piece draws its inspiration from the movie Alien. In fact the entire release (except for the bonus track "Narcissus") is based on just the first five to eight minutes of the movie...drifting through the deep-space freight hauler Nostromo while the human cargo lie deep in cold-sleep. Utilizing deep ambient minimalistic soundscapes, this journey through Decks A-E is highly intelligent & imaginative. One can almost believe s/he is in the far reaches of space in a quietly vacant, yet unquiet vessel. Eat a couple choice edibles, do a couple shots of Absinthe & strap on the headphones on a lonely stormy night...you will not be disappointed. Also, the added track is a nice dénouement. As SRF paraphrases so well, "Shhh - in space no one can hear you dream"
Thanks for this one, AllyW, it's a gem.
