Monthly Playlist & Soundcloud Widget

547158_384539068233239_1618786069_nAs you can see by the attached photo, your friendly ATH crew has been hard at work recently trying to make your website experience even better than before.  After hours spent in the ATH labs, we created a fancy Soundcloud widget over there on the sidebar which allows us to share with you our recent playlists.  We think it’s pretty sweet.  To celebrate this momentous occasion, we cranked out a new playlist today featuring some of our favorite tunes from the last few weeks.  Feel free to jam out in the Soundcloud app, stream/shuffle on Soundcloud.com, or give it a go as you browse through our recent reviews or fancy photos.  As always, feedback is welcome.  Party on Wayne.

Happy New Year from the IT Dept.

CaribouI promised a set of songs from the IT Department for your evening’s happenings. It has dance jams and down-tempo smoothness. It has stuff that was in our best of the year list and stuff that you may be hearing for the first time. Whether you use this for good or evil is up to you. Almost two hours, so plan accordingly…

While trolling for song links, I saw that Roger Sellers has a super fresh version of “Auld Lang Syne” up featuring The Deer. How cool its that? Naturally, it is batting clean up as the final spot on this list with the New Year’s theme. Enjoy your New Year’s with old friends, new friends *wink* and maybe even family. I prefer fambly.

May 2015 be better than 2014. Be you…

Friday Top 5: Best Pics of 2011

The photo guy has to have his best of list, right?

The five photos featured are my favorite moments shooting music this year. I want to share some background about them, what was going on when they happened. These aren’t the “best” photos I have taken, but they are all my best memories captured. Thank you, 2011 Live Music, and thank you Austin Town Hall for inviting me to be part of the team.

Break it for the rundown and a gallery of other favorites…

FT50: Songs of 2009

bestof2009cover_songsWe have to start this list off with a disclaimer.  We have three writers, all with different tastes, so the list should reflect that a little bit.  Also, these are our opinions, and by no means, are they meant to be seen as an “end all be all” to the question of what were the best songs of 2009.  That being said, we like our list quite a bit.  Sure, it’s got some expected numbers at the top, but the rest of the list is genius.  We’ve got some of the songs streaming for you, and the rest take you straight to youtube.  Follow the jump for full list.
