I said I would and now I am! More music video madness for y’all to dive your eyes & ears into. As I think we all do, I watch a lot of boring, stale, and unimaginative music videos these days. YetÂ I am continually refreshed by the sheer number of quality videos that are also being produced. From simple low budget stomach turners like Humans’ latest to years-in0the-making animated mind benders like Black Light Dinner Party’s new one. Dems go rough with their special effects and Clubfeet go seamless and both kept me engaged for every second. And Local Natives went all beautifully oddball on us. The only unifying aspect of these videos is there are no performance shots. NoÂ band membersÂ playing any instruments. Who needs that!?

Five weeks ago I had the pleasure of speaking with a Burning Ear reader who was writing an article on the way music blogs are changing the industry.Â May WildmanÂ was writing the article for The University of Marylandâ€™s daily newspaper. She asked me questions. We talked. Or rather, I talked. She listened patiently. Perhaps napped. Who can tell. Anyway, When I followed up a few days ago to see how it wasÂ receivedÂ she said the paper never published it. Something about â€œend of the year and a lot of other material to publish.â€ Just cause that paper dropped the ball doesnâ€™t mean Wildmanâ€™s work should go unread. After all, Itâ€™s pretty damn interesting. Plus a Read more

Strap on your shufflin’ shoes and make sure toÂ stretchÂ ’cause this list is an unmerciful messenger delivering jams of the highest quality. Some of these remixes have been banned by certainÂ unenlightenedÂ governmentsÂ for igniting dance parties and group high-fives so share with care.
This edition is chock full of TBE Remix alums and a few newbies shaking things up. Everyone’s favorite, Passion Pit, nab two spots while newbie Star Slinger clinches two more. In a massive non-surprise, RAC takes a heavy slice of this pie with a full 5 slots. Hey, it’s not my fault the guy is a genius. Stay tuned to the number 1 spot to see which brand-newcomers got the number 1 spot and then make sure to leave yourÂ thoughtsÂ and additions in the comments.

Holy cow. It was exactly 2 years ago (!?) today that I launched The Burning Ear from the butt wedge of my old couch. Since then it’s been nothing but a pleasure to share all of these great jams with you guys and gals. To all you regular readers and commenters, I love you all and look forward to another two! However, we all know 2 years olds don’t have patience for speeches so lets get right to the presents! I’ve got three gifts for you all, of which the first TWO are based on the number 2! Read more

Ace Reporter is TBE alum Chris Snyder who recorded a song every day of 2010 Â (!!) and released them all for free. Much to my peasant surprise, many of them were really good. To culminate his project he has whittled his mammoth collection down and re-recorded and mastered his favorites into a series of (also free) EPs that he is slowly releasing throughout this year. The first, named after one of my favorites from the 365 Project, was the Untouched and Arrived EP. EP closer “Frankfurt” steals the show with it’s driving rhythm and ripping guitars.
Another bit of Ace Reporter goodness is his list of favorite albums of 2010, rendered in the form of five cover songs instead of the usual jpeg and blurb that us bloggers squeeze out. Catch his renditions of tracks by 2010 faves The National, Arcade Fire, Beach House, and Local Natives.

Oh 2010, what a year you were. Not only were you The Burning Ear’s first fullÂ calendarÂ year, but you bombarded us with so much amazing music. Great albums from old favorites, fresh faces, and even genres we didn’t even knew we liked. Thanks 2010. You were awesome and we won’t forget you. Cheers to Read more
