13 tracks I’ve enjoyed in 2010

It’s that time of year.

Iains playlist reminded me to dig out some records I’ve enjoyed this year.

There’s some great stuff in here from Diamond Messages, CFCF, Clubroot, We & Lisa, Mayer Hawthorne, LCD Soundsystem, Ellen Allieen, Chew Lips, Dominik Eulberg, Chamboche, Angela K, Moby and Fyfe Dangerfield. And remixes by Classix, Monarchy and Paul Kalkbrenner.

Here’s the Spotify link:

Code Is Cool. A Linux interface for Spotify

I like this. It takes me back to my days of messing around with DR-DOS and MS-DOS.

These guys are in a different league though.

What you’re actually seeing is despotify, an open source Spotify client and gateway to their service.

The client features a text based user interface as a proof of concept of the underlying code.

Rock on.
