The Final CountdownThe Final Countdown
It’s the end of the year as we know it, and we feel fine!  Our site is about to turn three years old, and 2014 has been a great year.  This month we reached another milestone, topping the one-million-hit mark.  (We’ve had double that in spam!)  Our review of Óbó‘s Innhverfi was our most-read article of the month by far, followed by the n5MD Inversion Mix and our review of Lawrence English + Stephen Vitiello‘s Fable.

December is a cool-down month.  Frost replaces dew, the music release schedule slows to a trickle, and reviews are replaced by year-end lists and vacations.  But quiet doesn’t mean inactive.  In addition to a host of December releases, we’re already receiving word of 2015 releases, some of which are found below.

Our year-end lists will run through the middle of December and will be followed by two weeks of vacation.  New reviews will begin appearing in January.  This page will continue to be updated throughout the holidays, so be sure to check back for the latest additions!
